ADHD Is My Super Power Not My Disability.


“Just because some people think ADHD is a disability, doesn’t mean we all do!

ADHD is my super power and my track record proves it. I accomplish a lot more than my peers professionally, in my personal life and in achieving my dreams because I have relentless motivation.

Every super power has its kryptonite, so I have learned over the years how to choose where I give my energy, enjoy downtime more and revel in my accomplishments instead of just moving on to the next goal.

CBT, NLP, meditation and my stimulant meds have helped me harness my energy and I feel more empowered than ever.

But I would never choose life without my ADHD.

I see my friends struggle with purpose, unable to make decisions or be disciplined in their plans and if that’s ‘normal’, no thanks!

Also, please also don’t tell me that “ADHD isn’t real” and that “it’s just a pharmaceutical scam”.

The odds of the average person having more technical and educated knowledge about neurodivergent brains than the ADHD are slim.

Those types of unsubstantiated comments just make you sound naive and you will just lose credibility with me.

I love that ADHD is my superpower and I wouldn’t want life any other way!”

by Joy.
