5 Things ADHDers Need to Hear Today
And other important takeaways
I was inspired today by an Instagram Reel made by my beautiful friend, Libby Ward - Founder of Diary of an Honest Mom. She listed 5 Things that Moms need to hear and they really helped me feel better today. So, here are 5 Things that ADHDers need to hear today…
You’re doing MORE than enough. Oftentimes, ADHDers carry a deep wound of feeling like they’re not doing enough, not being enough. One way to overcome this feeling is to write down all of your accomplishments… whether it’s a list of what you’ve gotten done today, this week, or even in the last year. I promise you that it’s MORE than enough.
Having ADHD can be really, really challenging — but YOU’RE DOING IT! You’ve made it this far and you should be so so so proud of yourself. Take a few seconds today to praise all of your efforts. I know it’s been a rough road.
You are allowed to rest. You are allowed to rest. You are allowed to rest. You are allowed to rest!!!
It’s okay to do things differently. Your journey is not going to look like everyone else’s journey. Lean in to those differences and things will slowly fall into place.
Drink some water, okay?
On that note, I want to know how you’re doing…
Some other news…
I want to take just a second to brag about my passion project, ADHD Social - a private community of ADHDers that offers things like Body Doubling, a Book Club, Men’s Support Group, Art nights, Social Hours, and now we’ve just added a Mom Support Group - hosted by yours truly.

What is Neurodiversity? What does it look like in the workplace and what are the challenges for ADHDers at work? Neurodiversity is a bit of a buzz word right now - and I wanted to break it down and take a deeper look at the neurodiversity and inclusion movement. Join me and my friend, Ed Thompson, from Uptimize as we dig deeper and look at the progress being made in the workplace and also the challenges that we still need to overcome.
