I AM ADHD

October is ADHD awareness month, and I have ADHD.

Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a neurodevelopmental disorder affecting both children and adults around the globe. I was 16 years old when I was diagnosed with ADHD after exhibiting all of the symptoms from a wee babe and was failing all my classes except Art.

I had trouble making friends, keeping friends, and fitting in at school. I was always in trouble, in time out, and being sent to the principals office. Teachers in my Elementary Catholic School did not appreciate my questions, uncontrollable energy, or inability to sit still. This carried into Junior High and Highcshool where it was not tolerated by female students, but expected of make students and excused as “boys will be boys”

To help bring awareness too and #stopthestigma I’ll be sharing some of the amazing and positive things about ADHD.

Three major types of ADHD include the following:

  • ADHD, combined type. This, the most common type of ADHD, is characterized by impulsive and hyperactive behaviors as well as inattention and distractibility.
  • ADHD, impulsive/hyperactive type. ...
  • ADHD, inattentive and distractible type.

Benefits of ADHD

  • Creativite and Intentive. People with ADHD can be some of the most creative resources on a team, bringing energy and new approaches to their projects.
  • Spontaneous
  • Energetic
  • Hyper-focus, quality, and timeliness
  • Good in crises
  • Intuitive and detailed-oriented
  • Quick starters

Celebrities with ADHD

  • Adam Levine
  • Channing Tatum
  • Glenn Beck
  • James Carville
  • Justin Timberlake
  • Karina Smirnoff
  • Richard Branson
  • Salvador Dali
  • Solange Knowles
  • Ty Pennington
  • Whoopi Goldberg
  • swimmer Michael Phelps
  • soccer goalie Tim Howard
  • baseball player Shane Victorino
  • NFL Hall of Famer Terry Bradshaw

Many people with ADHD are highly intelligent and creative; even more creative than their non-ADHD counterparts. They're also better at managing crisis and are more intuitive thinkers.
