Thanks to the 200 people who turned up to our talk on 'Adults and ADHD' in Trinity College last night. Also a big thanks to the 200 people who watched the live streaming of the event! If you would like to see the talk in full please click here:
I have woken up to a red alert warning for Storm Emma. Niall just got a text saying all schools are closed, I’m on my way back up to bed. Looking out the window the 'Wild Atlantic' is just that. Except the storm is not in full force. The sea looks as if it does not know if it is coming or going. The water is dark grey with brown undertones, sucking sludge up from the sea floor. Short lines of foam struggle at its surface, sprouting randomly as early storm winds clash with the tidal pull.
Sometimes, when people find out I have ADHD, they look at me like I have two heads.
I do not, in fact, have two heads, nor do any of my shiny, squirrel noticing cohort. We have, in fact, the same number of heads as an identical sized control group.
And okay, my title is misleading, because what I’m actually listing here is five of the thousands of things that people with ADHD have in common … with everyone else.
