I have AD/HD. It's a blessing and a curse. Some days, I can't find my keys. Other days I'm hyperfocusing on an idea that is so important that I know it's going to change the world. Meanwhile, the house could be burning down and I wouldn't notice because I am tuned in to the universe of my brain.

And now for the disadvantages of living with AD/HD:
Some days I feel like I am a superhero. I am extremely creative, productive, funny and a joy to be around. Other days, I am impulsive, irritable, and I feel like I am annoying everyone around me. The struggle is real. Living with AD/HD is challenging, but I love who I am, even though I walk around with my foot in my mouth...not literally.
It's about balance. The challenge for those of us living with AD/HD is to find a way to harness the positive aspects of our superpower, while remembering to breathe before interrupting someone. It can be done, and I am confident that we can achieve this sense of equilibrium.
