ADHD and Me

This is my response to a post by Amber Corinne about ADHD in girls and women.

I wasn't aware that I had ADHD until I was in my 50s. It explains nearly everything. I also have complex PTSD. I was misdiagnosed with type II bipolar disorder. I've also been diagnosed with OCD, but I don't think I have true OCD. I think my OCD-like symptoms are actually part of ADHD.

I resist using the term "wrong" to describe the way my brain works. I've been called "wrong" all my life. I honestly wouldn't want to change the way my brain works. I'd just like to have learned ways to work with my brain instead of against it earlier in life.

  1. 'Wrong' is possibly the most perjorative and frequently wrong label that too many people have pinned on them.


This is a safe space. Be respectful.
