You are not nuts 👍🏻 It sounds like you have a magical brain like me ❤️ My ADHD "symptoms" (more like my way of being) have gotten so much more pronounced the last few years as I wade through peri. Getting the official diagnosis hasn't changed anything, in a way, and yet now I have such insight into SO MUCH in my past and how i do things now. It's been so helpful!! Highly recommend getting properly assessed so you have the information you need. You got this! x

I am not surprised. Turns out that all the people I like on the internet have ADHD or are autistic. Including me. Welcome to the club.

Gulp... apparently, I have ADHD too.... you've described me and my fluttery attention/brain almost exactly. Um... thanks, I think.

Wow, looks like I'm 3/4 ADHD too. Or more. Not sure. But hate to be boxed in anyway 😂

I’m seeing an awful lot of myself in your blog today. I don’t recall if it started in peri menopause but it’s been raging in my 60s.

When I finally got my diagnosis, it was like dominoes falling into place - so many things now made sense! I use it as a superpower, knowing how I work. Congratulations!

Thank you for sharing your story! I find ADHD so fascinating, and though I don't have it myself, I can recognise a lot of myself in parts of it. It's all a spectrum, isn't it. :)

I found this series of videos incredibly interesting - highly recommend a watch: https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PLzBixSjmbc8eFl6UX5_wWGP8i0mAs-cvY

🤯 My therapist recently asked if I thought I might have ADD/ADHD and I thought she was crazy. I always did well in school and was able to focus and study easily. But now, I start more projects than I finish and I’m finding it difficult to consistently work on my visual/mixed media memoir. So much of this sounds relatable, and I may need to dig a little deeper. Thanks for this great post! 💜

This reminds me when I found out that I’m an INFJ (hmmm….which seems to have some similar ways of being as adhd 😅). It was very freeing because I recognized myself and because there are good reasons for why I do things the way I do. All the best for this new unfolding journey!!❤️

There is a certain degree of liberation in it, isn't there? We can finally do things our way unapologetically and stop beating ourselves up about all the ways we don't work.

Wowwww, everything you said sounds exactly like me! (especially the part about not liking appointments and needing fluttery brain time!) Not sure if I want to find out more or stick my head in the sand and pretend I didn't just read this blog. haha!

I woke up this morning thinking about this EXACT topic, really wishing I knew how to come about an official diagnosis. The more I learn about ADHD, the more I feel seen. And I’m sad for my college-aged self that struggled so much, but made it. Wishing she knew and got the help she needed. Now, running a business and feeling like my brain just can’t keep up or remember anything (like you, I need to do/pay things right away or else it’s gone forever), it’s empowering to know there’s help and that I’m not alone. Thank you for sharing all of this Susannah!

Thank you for sharing this! You described me to a T! I discovered that I probably had ADHD when my teen daughter got her diagnostic. Women version of ADHD is so different, and most of them pass under the radar. I'm happy my daughter will have the tools to make it work to her advantage... and it was enlightening for me!
