It has been a while since my last blog, and my life has been on a bit of a roller coaster ride.
After 20-odd years of being told I have depression and anxiety and dealing with all those implications, I have been given a new diagnosis of ADHD. If I’m being honest, this diagnosis seems to fit me better.
It has made the struggles I have faced in life make sense. It almost feels like a homecoming. Sure, I’m disappointed that I’ve seen psychiatrists, psychologists, counsellors, and therapists and it has taken two decades to get a professional to truly listen to me.
I could allow this to make me bitter, but I’m not going to, as these decades have shaped me. They have made me a more empathetic person. They have made me realise the true advantage of properly listening to someone. The issues have allowed me to build my life in a way that works for me, which I don’t know if being “medicated” properly would have.
To give you a little understanding, here is a little video I popped on YouTube.
