What’s truly important to you…
What would that be like?
You feel overwhelmed and scattered because the details of life are endless. It seems impossible to get your life organized in a way that works for you. Between the endless details and the needs of others, it does’t feel like you have time or energy to have fun or enjoy your own life.
However, novelty and problem-solving engages your brain and motivates you, so you have tried all kinds of ways to make your life feel more manageable and enjoyable. You’ve read books on organizing, how to prioritize, and how to get things done. You’ve tried paper and online calendars and planners, not to mention all of the to-do lists you have made — so many to-do lists! Plus, you may have also listened to podcasts, participated in webinars, or watched YouTube videos.
You may be taking medication for ADHD, but you’re still struggling because the med can only do so much. You may have worked with a therapist, psychologist, or psychiatrist, hoping they could help. (Many of these helping professionals don’t specialize in ADHD, so they can only help up to a point. ADHD can easily be missed in a diagnosis because it commonly occurs with depression, anxiety, and other conditions.)
Some of these solutions have added more details to your already full plate. You may have even wondered, “What is “wrong” with me???
Nothing is wrong with you.
First of all, your brain works differently. Much of what you tried was not designed for you. Being a woman with ADHD is more challenging because of the additional details and energy required to care for your loved ones and coordinate schedules and activities. Plus, you were probably doing it all without support because you thought you should be able to figure it out by yourself. You’re smart, so what’s the problem?
The truth is that successful people have all kinds of support that most of us don’t know about, so we think we “should” be able to figure it out by ourselves. However, it doesn’t matter how smart you are because it’s not about being smart. Everyone needs support, and those of us with ADHD process information differently. There are upsides and downsides to this. With an understanding of what’s going on, you can find strategies and support that work for you!
