And every night before a deadline I swear “next time I’ll start earlier!!”
Wait, why did I go to the kitchen?
This is what happens to kids with ADHD who, instead of getting help and treatment, get told to try harder.
- Add a dash of Rejection sensitive Dysphoria
- A cup of Emotional Dysregulation
- And a dollop of “I can’t do anything all day because I can’t stop worying about this stupid E-Mail”
Thank you for riding this out with me, ADHD Partner.
“Why can you do it now and not earlier? Why can you draw all day but not even eat?”
This happened the other day, so I had to try and draw down my attempt at explaining Executive Dysfunction and why it sometimes just suddenly… disappears..
This is… one of the reasons why I have a hard time truly connecting with people – and one of my best kept secrets. Or rather, most shamefully hidden secrets.
“But you don’t look like you have ADHD”. Have you heard this before?
Sometimes, you need to choose whose advice on ADHD you want to trust.
One of my biggest daily struggles: Executive Dysfunction and the inability to prioritize tasks.
First comic! Please bare with me whilst I figure out how I exactly want to do this (style? what is style).
