I will respond with this dance and song combo to anybody who questions the validity of anxiety #anxiety #adhdproblems #adhd #mentalhealthawareness

I can also listen to 3 other conversations at once. Sensory overload is just a small fraction of this disorder. If you noticed when I go out I have to walk around and can’t stay in one spot lol. I usually don’t sleep at all after going out with friends. It’s worth it though. I used to try to hide these things and it would make me quiet all night or I’d be crawling out of my skin. Sometimes I stare off into space and people ask if I’m ok lol. There’s no harm in opening up about ADHD, different disorders, or especially mental illness. Everyone has their unique way of dealing/coping with struggles. #adhd #anxiety #sensoryoverload #adhdproblems #add #brainfog

If your kid remembers best through verbal repetition & by saying things aloud, then they could be auditory learners. Such kids find it difficult to work quietly for long periods of time. They can remember what they say and what others say very well. They enjoy the opportunities to present dramatically, including the use of music. Such auditory learners are easily distracted by noise, but they are also easily distracted by silence. So, what’s YOUR kid’s learning style? http://bit.ly/2WSKc8I Please TAG, SHARE and SAVE this post if you found it helpful. ??

Many of you asked what activities I recommend for summer boredom. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ No matter what, I recommend posting a schedule on your refrigerator at the beginning of each week. Make sure to have a free time block listed in your schedule to empower your children to choose an activity for themselves (within set parameters that you lay down for them). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What activities would you add? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #children #adhd #summer #adhdproblems #schoolsoutforsummer #summerschool #summerschedule #summercamp #activitiesforkids #simplychildren #parentingtips #structure #healthykids #childrenswellness #mindfulparenting #mindfulparents #dyslexia #dyslexic #healthylifestyle #summerschedule #teachersofinstagram #learningdifferences #exercise #adhdparents #dyslexiaparents #miamipsychologist #miamikids #momsinmiami #dadsofinstagram #miamitherapist

. A lot of people call ADHD a super power and in a way I can agree with that. We are more creative than most people, we are fun and spontaneous and we have a lot of imagination but I think that it’s important to see that there are a lot of downsides when it comes to this disability as well, cause that’s what it is a disability. I mean I’m an adult mom who can’t pay her own bills, who can’t remember doctors appointments or important meetings, who doesn’t have any routines or structure in her life and always find a way to lose all her stuff. I always need help and I can’t take care of myself a 100%, I’m basically an adult child. Having ADHD means living with anxiety and depression cause your brain is a total mess that never sleeps or shuts up and also feeling like you suck at everything and you can’t do nothing right. ADHD might come with a few pros but the cons are way more and I think that it’s important to talk about the struggles that comes with this disability, just as it is important to see the good things and laugh about them. . #adhd#adhdawareness#adhdproblems

Your child’s inability to concentrate might mean something else. Chances are he/she has #adhd. Seek help at the earliest. Read our blog today: Link in bio #askdrbatras about ADHD. . . . #signs #symptoms #adhd #adhdproblems #adhdlife #homeopathy101 #homeopathy #homeopathyworks #blog

Habits and routines certainly help an ADHD child cope. But sometimes life can throw a curve ball. Something that shakes the very fundament of daily life. Like having run out of Nutella. Sometimes the bad shit piles up. Like also having run out of caramel chocolate AND only having the dregs of a pot of yoghurt left. (The bottom bit is DISGUSTING, although the bit directly on top of the bottom bit is totally delish.) And when you find out that there are no Haribo left either, well, someone has to pay. That’s how our evening escalated into a debacle last night. https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=2829024327169024&id=1698435426894592 #adhd #parentingachildwithadhd #positivelyadhd #loveadhd #adhdpositives #adhdteen #adhdmum #adhdparents #adhdissues #adhdproblems #adhdstrengths #howtobeadhd #adhdaware #adhdawareness #adhdbrain

This healing work, is layered, it runs deep, it requires that we look at everything we do, everything we say to ourselves, it requires mindfulness. # It’s not about exercise to punish the body, or food for restriction and weight loss, it’s not self talk to do more for the sake of doing. It is self-care, it is living on purpose, it’s a cry from the body, and the environment for us to pay more attention. #itsnitallinyourhead #cravedetox #naturalmedicine

This poo is thin and narrow like a ribbon and is a type of constipation. What has happened here is the bulk of the stool has become hard and compacted and stuck to the gut wall. To help keep things moving a narrow passageway has been formed so some of the poop can move through the middle. ______________________ #fionastock #healthychildhealthygut #constipation #leakygut #healthychildren #guthealth #healthygut #child #immunity #immunehealth #healthyimmunesystem #guthealthy #gutflora #healyourgut #adhd #adhdproblems #adhdbrain #adhdparenting #toddler #kidshealth #healthychildren #healthykids

ADHD is a common disorder across the lifespan. Population surveys find that around five per cent of children and three per cent of adults meet ADHD diagnostic criteria. This prevalence has remain the same over three decades. This means that the increase in diagnostic rates of ADHD, seen in clinical practice, are related to increased awareness and recognition of ADHD, rather than any rise in the numbers of people with ADHD in the general population. . Does your mind always wander around and there's a problem with concentration? . Do you (or your child) find it hard to focus on a task and complete it? . Do you have many uncompleted tasks on your table (yes some call it busy but 🙄) and at the end of the day you discovered that non was attended to? . Do you have this inner restlessness and feeling like there's something that needs to be done and you actually don't know what it is? . Are you hyperactive and you feel you can multitask but unable to complete these tasks? . Do you make decisions before you think it through...like "thinking after acting" or acting without a major reason or cause for the action? . Is the lack/reduced concentration, inattentive, hyperactivity and impulsiveness is affecting yours or your child's social, academic or occupational functioning? . If you relate to any of these and you'd like to get assessed and therapy, kindly follow & send a DM to @mindshaven or call 08023211348 . . . #mindshaven #adhdawareness #dyslexia #adhdbrain #adhd #adhdproblems #adhdissues #adhdlife #adhdandme #adhdsymptoms #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealth #adhdblog #mentalhealthblog #adhdsupport #mentalhealth #mindshaven #abuja #abujaschools #abujamoms #abujadads #hyperactive #impulsive #attention #psychologist #therapist #psychiatrist

1 week Citalopram update - Ik slik nu 1 week 5 gram per dag en het valt me zo mee 😅 ik heb echt wel wat bijwerkingen maar eigenlijk alle bijwerkingen die ik heb had ik al door de angststoornis, dus eigenlijk heel fijn dat ik het nu allemaal aan een pilletje kan wijten 😇 Ik kan merken dat ik over het algemeen veel rustiger ben, m'n ADHD hoofd loopt niet meer zo veel over en ik slaap veel beter 💤 Gisteren kreeg ik een nieuwe bijwerking, duizelingen... Daar schrok ik even van want die waren best heftig maar ook dat ging weer weg. Tot nog toe vind ik de rust die ik eindelijk heb gevonden meer opwegen dan de bijwerkingen dus we gaan door! 🤞🌻

#adhdproblems #psychology #psychoanalysis #dsm5 #personal #medical #dsm #ocdp اختلال نقص توجه فقط مختص دوره کودکی نیست؛ بلکه، بزرگسالان نیز ممکن است مبتلا به این اختلال شوند. گاهی اوقات این نتیجۀ کودکی فرد دارای اختلال است که به بزرگسالی انتقال یافته است (حدود 7 درصد از کودکان در یزرگسالی نیز با اختلال نقص توجه کشمکش دارند). در مواقع دیگر، اختلال این بزرگسالان یا صرفاً هرگز در کودکی تشخیص داده نشده است یا اختلال بعداً در زندگی اش نمایان می شود. به نظر می رسد اختلال نقص توجه بزرگسالان بسیار شبیه اختلال نقص توجه کودکان باشد. اگر شما به شش یا بیش از شش علائم زیر پاسخ بله بدهید، احتمالاً ممکن است مبتلا به اختلال نقص توجه بزرگسالان باشید: • اغلب در توجه به جزییات ناتوان هستید یا در یک کار، دوره آموزشی و یا دیگر فعالیت ها مرتکب بی دقتی و اشتباهات پس از آن می شوید. • اغلب در توجه متمرکز برای انجام تکالیف یا اجرای فعالیت ها مشکل دارید. • اغلب هنگام سخنرانی و مواردی از این قبیل قادر به شنیدن مستقیم گفته های شفاهی نیستید. • اغلب نمی توانید تمام یک آموزش را از ابتدا تا انتها دنبال کنید و در اتمام کارهای سخت یا مأموریت های کاری ناتوان هستید. • اغلب در سازماندهی تکالیف و فعالیت ها مشکل دارید. • اغلب از درگیری در تکالیفی که مستلزم تلاش ذهنی متمرکز هستند، اجتناب می کنید یا بی میل هستید. • اغلب مطالب و امور لازم برای انجام تکالیف و فعالیت ها را فراموش می کنید. • اغلب حواستان به آسانی از طریق محرک های گیج کننده پرت می شود. • اغلب در فعالیت های روزانه، فردی فراموشکار هستید. • اغلب با دست هایتان ور می روید و یا نمی توانید سرجایتان بنشینید. • اغلب در موقعیت های مستلزم نشستن سر جای خود را ترک می کنید. • اغلب بیقراری و احساسات ذهنی یا خود خوری را تجربه می کنید. • اغلب در اجرا یا همراهی در فعالیت های بی صدا و آرام مشکل دارید. • اغلب بسیار فعال و همیشه در حال رفتن هستید و یا کارها را به سرعت و مانند ماشین خودکار انجام می دهید. • اغلب بسیار پر حرف هستید. • اغلب سؤال ها را قبل از تمام شدن جواب می دهید. • اغلب در منتظر ماندن مشکل دارید • اغلب در بین حرف دیگران می پرید و سرزده وارد جمع دیگران می شوید (همچون شلیک گلوله ای در جلسه گفتگو)

#gibberish don’t read Finally on the up! Soon I’ll be where I should’ve been so long ago, I wouldn’t want to re live the last four years of my life but i believe being in the dark for a moment stops us taking the light for granted and makes us better people. I don’t want or expect my ex to fall back into my arms because I’m doing better, I want just her to stop thinking of me as some lazy unmotivated depressed useless person, instead understand Its a mental disorder that caused us so much heartache for so many years. It really does shed a light on so many things, i want to apologise for it all, at the same time I wonder if I subconsciously want to see if it could be different with new perspectives which then gets me worried an anxious as every time we start talking again my life goes down hill then crashes when it doesn’t work. Which happenens every time, until the lastime, I gave up, I stopped trying to better my life so she would want me back and just focussed on trying to find my smile again. That’s when I had a breakthrough, now on the mend I’m not sure what will happen next time, probably nothing because I’ll most likely do nothing because it’s the easiest option and at least whilst I’m on meds I don’t constantly think of us like I do normally. For some reason I care what she thinks, even though she probably doesn’t care at all..

➡️Swipe to see an example of a Accommodation/modification page➡️ If your child has an Individualized Education Program (IEP) or a 504 plan, they will have accommodations and/or modifications. You may also hear school staff say modification. An accommodation changes how a student learns the material. A modification changes what a student is taught or expected to learn. Accommodation Examples: Presentation accommodations (changes the way information is presented) * Listen to audio recordings instead of reading text * Learn content from audiobooks, movies, videos, and digital media instead of reading print versions * Get class notes from another student * See an outline of a lesson * Use visual presentations of verbal material, such as word Response accommodations (changes the way kids complete assignments or tests) * Capture responses on an audio recorder * Use a spelling dictionary or digital spell-checker * Use a calculator or table of “math facts” Setting accommodations * Work or take a test in a different setting, such as a quiet room with few distractions * Sit where they learn best (for example, near the teacher) * Take a test in a small group setting * Use sensory tools such as an exercise band that can be looped around a chair’s legs (so fidgety kids can kick it and quietly get their energy out) Timing accommodations * Take more time to complete a task or a test * Take frequent breaks, such as after completing a worksheet Scheduling accommodations * Take more time to complete a project * Take sections of a test in a different order * Take a test at a specific time of day Organization skills accommodations * Use an alarm to help with time management * Mark texts with a highlighter * Use a planner or organizer to help coordinate assignments * Receive study skills instruction Modifications * Complete fewer or different homework problems than peers * Write shorter papers * Answer fewer or different test questions * Create alternate projects or assignments Curriculum modifications * Learn different material (such as continuing to work on multiplication while classmates move on to fractions) * Get graded or assessed using a different standard

We went to the lil stream y the hiking trails in town. Mommy had fun but after 10 minutes I hightailed it to the car. It scared her so bad because she thought I was gonna run away.

When you keep leaving your stuff at work... #adhdproblems

I just heard someone around my age (mid 30s) walking down the street talking about “kids these days...” He had a lot of negative things to say, so I thought I’d take a moment to share a few wonderful things about kids these days... They write thoughtful and heartfelt thank you notes in beautiful cursive. They listen. They want to be kind and compassionate and confident people. They’re eager to learn and grow. They work hard. Despite everything that is happening in their world, they are determined. They refuse to be discouraged. Kids these days are amazing!❤️ ~ ~ ~ ~ #kids #kidsofinstagram #teens #tweens #adhd #adhdawareness #adhdlife #adhdsupport #adhdproblems #adhdparenting #beyourself #believeinyourself #middleschool #mglit #book #booksbooksbooks #bookstagram #igreads #reading #amreading #bookgeek #booknerd #invisibleillness #bentnotbroken #scoliosis #scoliosisfighter

The National Ha#h Service Review.. Today we have the 🦍 Gorilla Kush 🧱💯🔥✅. (Indica dom hybrid) This ape of a hitter 🦍🥊 will have your knuckles dragging with its grip from that indica flower of swinging power. While giving enough sativa like effect to keep a slight focus. The heat from your hand makes it feel like sand and can be a bit tacky too. Little bit oily and a real joy to use, for that moment you need to take a pew. This heavy weight will keep you in full swing with a buzzy like body feeling inside but with out a panic.. On first inhale it's sweet earty and some what warm. Leaving a pre cough tickle at the back of the throat and nose, letting you know it has a grip while calming you with a hug. The exhale is more that of earth & soil with that woody kick of sweetness, finishing off with a light twang of floral tones with a dusting of pepper. You will have this light film like aftertaste that will coat the roof of your mouth with a creamy like nuttyness. The high swings in medium to fast and grabs the eyes and cheeks together with a heady flow that runs down the shoulders and into the body for a slight buzzy feeling. Great for a late afternoon break or evening time out from the trees. This is great for mild or moderate pain relief, great for ADHD, stress, depression, PTSD, anxiety, and them days you dont feel like hanging about.. will give a wobble if not respected. 💯🔥🧱. I give this a solid 4/5👌🔥🧱💚👊🦍🥊✅ #hashporn #hashlife #hash #hashish #hash4champions #420hash #hash420 #weedlife #dank #cleanhash #goodhash #tophash #hashpic #ukhash #adhdproblems #adhdsupport #ukweed #weedmaps #weedcommunity #weedsociety #ukcannabis #buddyflowers020 #cannauk #cannabisuk #ifyouknowyouknow #pic #hashsociety #high #highlife

I get excited often. I get this really great idea for a business or a website or an app or whatever, and I start working on it. . But then, when the initial excitement passes, this great idea is all but forgotten. . When it’s not new and fresh anymore, I find it difficult to care unless I have someone to partner up with that holds me accountable. . I’m 💯 I would have been a millionaire by now if I had the follow-through to go along with my creativity 😉 . Maybe one day! .

Perfectionism isn’t really about trying to be perfect. It’s more a desire to quiet your demanding inner critic.

#adhd has reached epidemic proportions. At least 1 out of every 5 high school students and roughly half of the college kids reported regular use of stimulant medications. If I told you that many adolescents and young adults were addicted to meth - maybe you’d be alarmed. Well, sound the alarm. Adderall, vyvanse, Ritalin - they are all amphetamines that are IDENTICAL and indistinguishable from “crystal meth” or the methamphetamine cooked up in drug kitchens all over the city. And of course, because you’re giving your kids METH - they get addicted and have scary side effects which can even be life threatening. Stimulants are popular because they’re profitable, easy, and fast. But of course they don’t fix the problem - if anything they make it worse. So what does “fix” ADHD? Eating clean, exercising regularly and intensely, limiting time on electronic devices, prioritizing sleep, and socializing with peers. You know - normal childhood for most of us born before 1990. Specifically VERY effective for ADHD is the “Feingold Diet” which involves removing ALL food additives. No food dyes, artificial or “natural” flavors, preservatives, sweeteners, thickeners, emulsifiers, etc. only REAL food ingredients. Very easy concept - super difficult to implement. These additives are EVERYWHERE. ~95% of the time, removing all the additives dramatically improves mood, focus, and behavior. If you do so and are still struggling with some hyperactivity, then try cutting out foods high in Salicylates (includes taking Aspirin). For some, salicylate naturally present in certain foods is excitatory to the brain. But don’t even bother with the salicylate thing if you haven’t cut out the Gatorade or the sour patch kids. #adhdproblems #youarewhatyoueat #feingolddiet #foodadditives #fooddye #preservativefree #methaddict #stimulants #methamphetamines #warondrugs #bigpharma #drugdealers #doctorsaredrugdealers #druggedup #educationreform #focusonhealth #healthiswealth #holisticurgentcare #happyhealthykids

The dark side of adhd ⠀⠀ I’m sure we have all seen Star Wars or are familiar with the famous quote “ fear is the path to the dark side” ⠀⠀ But do we really know how this resonates with a atypical mind. Yoda explains to Luke on dagobah “ once you start down the dark path forever will it dominate your destiny and consume you “ What if we look at it from an ADHD perspective . ⠀⠀ Fear leads to anger - an atypical person develops self esteem issues and becomes socially withdrawn. Why, cause we are perceived to be impulsive, inattentive, hyperactive, talk harshly , misunderstood, loud, speak our minds. ⠀⠀ This all in turn causes the world to reject us and make us feel inhuman. It causes you to withdraw from the world, retracting to a place of comfort ( your isolated Alcatraz) . We are left pondering on the words of others and being hijacked in our swirl of thoughts leading us to become angry. ⠀⠀ Anger leads to hate- the most corrosive aspect of living Is to hate some one. I won’t lie I’ve been here so many times. It’s the emotional storm of your own angry thoughts. How the world will never accept you for who you are not what you could be. ⠀⠀ Hatred is the catacomb of your own thoughts buried in every room waiting to remind you of what caused you to be here. Was it your boss, work stress, friends that abandon you or dislike you or that girl you tried so hard to take on a date but made a fool of your self. Every chamber is a thought and every day you waltz through these thoughts and allow them to enter your mind. This in turn leads to suffering ⠀⠀ Hate leads to suffering- the eternal circle of self doubt, fear, and the continual calling of your adhd mind reminding you of the what lead you here . ⠀⠀ From my experience I know that my psychiatrist has helped me battle through this. He taught me ways to over come the thought process, understand why I’m feeling what I’m feeling. I would recommend a psych program to allow you to come back to the lightside. ⠀⠀ #adhdadults #adhdcoaching #adhdmoms #adhdtreatment #adhdhelp #adhdtribe #adhdtreatment #adhd #adhdmeme #adhdproblems #adhdstruggles #adhdbrain #impulsivity #brain #psychology #adhdisreal #ipreview via @previe

@grayswildlife Picture #1 A click beetle -not on exhibit just somehow ended up in the wagon. Never seen one before had to Google it. The trip started with Kris bolting from the wagon pickup at the front gate all around the deer 🦌 to the albino raccoon 🦝 if your familiar you’ll know I lost eyesight of him twice as I was chasing him running (I was not planning on doing cardio today. ) I only caught him because he fell on his bum! Then we had to make a makeshift seatbelt with my husbands belt to keep kris seated in the wagon. 🤦‍♀️🤷‍♀️ well we definitely won’t forget this particular trip to Gray’s animal park. #adhdlife #adhdproblems #globaldevelopmentaldelay #clickbeetle

We went to a wedding this weekend for a dear friend of ours. . Almost made it through without any pregnant hormone tears. . At the reception the classic bouquet toss occurred, so naturally I sent Kari up there as “All the Single Ladies” by Beyoncé played. . And of course guess who caught it? Yep... my Kari. . And the tradition of that single lady being the next person to get married made me think. . Yes, it’s possible as she was one of the older girls out there, but when your child has an intellectual disability and ADHD you think twice about the “normal” things in life. . Because the “normal” things in life are NOT normal. . We have to work on life skills so hard with her that thinking about a high level relationship such as a marriage seems impossible. . I question myself like this, “Can someone with a normal functioning level want to marry a person with a lower functioning level? Isn’t there some type of extra care the “normal” functioning person would have to provide making a give and take marriage hard? . So much of me prays that there is someone in life for her because she is beautiful inside and out, but the REAL me says this may not be true. . And that is where the few tears come in. It’s where being a mom of a special needs child hits hard. . But you should have seen the smile on her face when she caught it. . #specialneedsmom #specialneedskids #intellectualdisabilities #fostercare #fosterparents #adhdproblems #intellectualdisability #marriage #boquettoss #herviewfromhome #adoption #disabilityawareness #disabilityadvocate #karijo #fostermom #motherhood #parentingthoughts #weddingtears #receptiondecor #realtalkqq

READING HACKS FOR ADHD! . . . Reading is something that’s never really come naturally for me, and I find this to be very common in us ADHD folks. In fact, my “reading with ADHD” post is arguably my most viral post and I was getting tons of messages saying it was relatable! That said, here’s what helps my ADHD brain 🧠 read. . . . 1.) FOLLOW THE WORDS WITH YOUR PEN. Or finger. This helps me lots with my focus. Thanks English high school teacher for showing me this one! . . . 2.) 25/5 RULE. Us ADHD folks dive all the way into things, this can be our friend sometimes but many times, it can overwhelm us. The 25/5 rule is a way of breaking up a task in to chunks. For about an hour a two, you’ll go 25 minutes (setting a timer) doing nothing but reading with all other distractions put down (libraries are your friend), and then taking a timed 5 minute break after (bonus points if you move your butt! I like walking!) then 25 minutes of reading, 5 minute break again. This cycle for about 1-2 hours helps me lots with reading and productivity. . . . 3.) SET A GOAL AND GET ACCOUNTABILITY. Encouraging friends matter. One of the best things we can do is set a goal for the amount of books we’d like to read in a year, and ask a buddy of ours to check in perhaps once every other week to see how’s it going! We’re all too familiar with jumping on a task and not sticking with it, accountability is the ultimate hack here. . . . What about you? What’s one book you’d like to read in the next 30 days?

So this week’s #featurefriday is late.. I love this page @phdvalerierosa ! We have been traveling ALL weekend for a wedding. My son’s ADHD showed up as an uninvited guest and we had to leave. What I initially felt was a sense of embarrassment and isolation. Followed by 🤬 THEM. They have no idea how hard he is trying. And he’s never seen a beach in real life before so his hyper focus was on overdrive. Regardless of a child’s behavior adults should never stare, point or call them “bad” to the point where they can hear. . I’ll be talking about this on the blog this week. I’m very curious to see how other parents deal with this level of stigmatization. #adhdparents #adhdkid #adhdsupport #adhdisreal #adhdawareness #adhdproblems #adhdmom #adhdparenting #adhdtribe #adhd

Gosh I love this cutie pie.

Sometimes a person’s nails can identify a medical issue or problem that otherwise could be overlooked. Fingernails can tell us a great deal about what is going on internally in the body. Ridges and lines, peeling, discoloration, white spots and brittle nails are just some of the signs that something may be wrong. • • • Ridges and lines (actually referred to as Beau’s Lines) and white spots on the nails can indicate a deficiency in zinc, among other issues. Over the years, we have seen many children in our center with white spots and/or lines on their fingernails. • • • Looking more deeply into this subject, we found that a zinc deficiency, sometimes paired with low calcium and magnesium levels, has many implications on a child’s learning, growth, and behavior. • • • For more information about how mineral deficiencies can affect your child’s learning please visit our website at www.

Couldn't sit still the other day whilst we were meant to be "resting" (idk what that is 🤷) so I got my camera out and got creative. So have some mediocre shots, with even more mediocre animation with a sprinkle of mediocre riding ✌️ . @hunt.mountain #thechaseison . . . . . . #loamlife #ladiesdodh #crankybetty #womenmtb #womenwhoshred #lovemtb #bikelife #instabikes #girlrider #adhdproblems #singletrack #fromwhereiride #ridemoremtb #mtbphoto #lovebike #mtbpictureoftheday #mtblove #mymaxxis #girlsrockmtb #wonderfulwildwomen #mtbgram #allmtb #dhgirls #mtbaddict #girlswhoshred #mtbgirl #womenscycling

It’s been a hard few months. I struggle with making myself do anything that isn’t absolutely necessary. It took me 3 weeks to get my ADHD meds refilled because I can’t *just call* and ask for a refill. Idk why, but even just calling is a huge task that I have to make myself do. And then it took me a week to actually go pick up the prescription because I would forget until I was at home and making myself go out again seemed like such a big task. But I finally have my meds again, so now I just have to remember to take them everyday. Things still suck right now. I have so much on my mind and that I’m worried about. Everything seems too big to tackle. My brain is making everything so hard. But I have my meds and that’s a good place to start. . #struggstofunc #mentalhealth #depression #adhd #adhdproblems #life #beinganadultsucks #queer #ftm #transmen

Can ANYONE point me in the direction of an explanation of ADHD for my husband? He just does not get it. As much as I’ve tried to explain and thought he’d got it, he hasn’t... ADHD rears it’s ugly head again. He doesn’t understand how I can hold down a very serious and important job but don’t have my shit together, in ANY way at home 🙈 Experienced and tips great appreciated 💞 my norm is to run away from anything not working but we have a precious baby boy and I can’t do that to him, so I need an alternative, at least until he’s a little older 😔 #adhdsupport -#adultadhd #mumswithadhd #adhdmom #adhd #adhdbrain #adhdproblems #adhdprobs #adhdwomen #adhdawareness #adhdisreal #adhdtips #adhdfamily

I have a hard time making decisions on my own. I know what I want to do, but I don’t always know if the decision I WANT to make is the right one for me. . One of the things about my ADHD brain is, that I have a hard time creating an overall view of what the consequences of my decisions will be. Because it takes a lot of organization and brain power that I don’t really have, so I get easily overwhelmed. . So every time I have big decisions to make, I outsource the consequence calculations to my parents to make sure I get the full perspective 😂 . Do you do that as well? . . . #adhd #adhdwomen #adhdawareness #adhdproblems #adhdmemes #adhdparenting #adhdlife #adhdkids #adhdsupport #adhdbrain #adultadhd #adhdprobs #adhdtips #neurodiverse #neurodivergent #neurodiversity

As you move through your Sunday and start making your plans for the week ahead, I encourage you to make room in your mind for "falling off the horse." ••• Plans, routines, habits are so great but the reality is, it is pretty much *inevitable* that we will fall of the horse at some point: get distracted from our plans and realize we're behind, not follow through on a part of our routine, forget a habit we're trying to set. ••• Accept it. It is normal and part of life. ••• Instead, before you begin, set the intention to get back on the horse, not get TRAMPLED by the horse when this happens. ••• Don't throw out ALL your plans because one element of it got lost. Don't go completely rogue for the entire day or week because you didn't perfectly live out the routine you'd devised. Don't give up on the habit you're trying to build just because the process isn't flawless like you envisioned. ••• Falling off the horse isn't fun. It can be downright discouraging to find yourself on the ground. But if you get back up in the saddle and keep going, you'll still have spent more time ON the horse than OFF it. ••• And that is still a win, my friends. ••• I first heard this quote/concept during an @adhdrewired podcast by Eric Tivers. Highly recommend giving it a listen! 🎧 ••• Alissa #wonkybrainclub

“Obstacles don’t have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don’t turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it.” What is one obstacle you are facing right now? Let’s figure out how to get you past it!

Jadikan rumah sebagai 'tempat aman' bagi anak untuk melakukan kesalahan. Pastikan anak mengerti bahwa ketika mereka melakukan kesalahan, mereka juga dapat belajar dari kesalahan mereka. Apahila rumah tidak lagi menjadi tempat yg aman bagi anak, maka dimana lagi mereka memiliki tempat untuk melatih kontrol mereka?

Praise your child!⠀ ⠀ Anak dengan adhd membutuhkan dukungan lebih dari orang tua dan pengasuh mereka. Salah satu bentuk dukungan yg dapat diberikan adalah memberikan pujian (praise?) dan rasa aman pada anak. Perlu diingat bahwa anak dengan adhd cenderung lbh sering mendapatkan kritik daripada pujian. Pemberian pujian dapat memotivasi mereka dan meningkatkan kepercayaan diri mereka!
