Why You Need Me

By Linda.

Explain adult ADHD to non ADHD adults Adult ADD Strengths

Part of #ExplainAdultADHD. Crowdsourcing ADHD adults to help reduce ignorance and stigma by non-ADHD adults against our fellow adults with ADHD.

Share the most important point you want non-ADDers to know about what it’s really like living with Adult ADHD, I post it on my blog & share it on social media with the hashtag #ExplainAdultADHD and encourage others to share it. Anonymously or full name.

Why You Need Me

“I am a Registered Psychiatric Nurse. I have been told that I am a poor student, and don’t know how to study “properly”. That may be true.

I have not had the “hyper” part of the special attributes we have, but I have something people need.

I am the person you want when there is a dire emergency. This is my calm and happy place.

I can see everything that needs to be done, and set about doing it, while those around me are still freaking out.

I can hyper focus, and it is the best feeling in the World. Everything slows down, for me, and all becomes crystal clear.

This is not a flaw, or a fault, it is an adaptation that can save lives.”
