I am far from an expert on ADHD treatment and in no way am I able to come close to providing you with the professional help you need if you struggle with your own devil’s existence daily. But I can share tips that have helped me to get past my ongoing fight with my devil. Things are changing for the good for me and I believe that some things I learned to do to accept my own ADHD devil, can change your opinion on his presence as well.
If you’re new to my blog and are wondering what devil it is I’m talking about, here are some posts that can explain the terms I use to describe my ADHD and my main believes on how ADHD should be seen as a deviation instead of a disorder:
> Why ADHD is like a Devil
> I am the devil
> Adore your (ADH)Difference
> ADHD: Deviation, not Disorder
In the coming weeks, I’ll provide you with a new challenge every Friday. Each challenge will focus on a specific struggle that is part of the ADHD experience, like getting distracted or being unable to sit still. But instead of looking at this struggle as a bad thing, I want to ask you to look for the good in it. Did something make you laugh? Did you notice some extra fun or beauty because of your ADHD? Try to reshape your struggle into something that is positive for you.
The idea is that I’ll ask you to keep a kind of diary of all the positivity you can find in your struggles, and every week I’ll provide you with a new topic for the week to come. Filling in the diary will only take a few minutes or so per day, but as a result you create a book, collection of napkins, word-file or comment on this post, you’re completely free to choose whatever you like.. The point is that you create something that will remind you of all the beautiful, happy and fun things your devil provides you with, something that can help you to see the amazing things that belong to you.
