Symptoms

ADHD is often described by a list of symptoms, made up by the neurotypical brains that invented the name ADHD. But this doesn’t cover the whole story, it doesn’t explain the true experience of living with this type of brain everyday of your life since it’s merely focussed on what is visible from the outside. ADHD, especially in girls, does great damage on the inside and the true symptoms are much severe than a clinical list can describe.

Hope

ADHD is much more than a disorder. ADHD brains contain an angel inside them, providing them with many super-powers and cool abilities. ADHD comes with good things, with a lot of fun and happiness on the days that the devil remains small. ADHD brains love stronger, laugh harder and live more intense which makes us amazing people to be around.

Struggles

From little frustrations to big challenges, everyday the ADHD devil effects the life of the brain he lives in. He spreads chaos and darkness and sometimes he wins the fight and bad things happen. The scary truth about the devil’s dark magic that makes ADHD brains do things they will regret and often feel ashamed of. The most honest description of the darkest ADHD moments.
