On Monday we managed to get ourselves diagnosed. Today lets talk about what to do with that diagnosis. I, for one, went headlong into the process of educating myself about ADHD. I learned what it is, and what it is not. It was a few months before I began to realize that ADHD is not something that can be defined definitively, if I may use that twisted phrase.
What I mean is that ADHD is a Symptom Spectrum Disorder and none of us have all the symptoms. Some of the symptoms are conflicting, or at least the manifestations of them would seem to be polar opposites.
For example, some of us are neat freaks and some of us can’t find anything if someone cleans up their space. I’m okay with you cleaning up my space, but I don’t mind the mess either. I’m in the middle on this one. How politically correct of me, eh?
