I need to stop thinking of myself as “a person who would be neurotypical if she would shape up and put some more effort in” : ADHD

I saw this tweet by René Brooks and it really hit home. It’s like I know so much about ADHD and have read so much advice, I understand what “people with ADHD” go through, yet I still find it hard to not blame myself for not acting like someone who doesn’t have ADHD.

One of the things that made my ADHD easier to manage was treating myself like a person with ADHD instead of a person who would be [NT] if she would shape up and put some more effort in. It’s funny because we tell other people not to do that to us while we do that to us.

There’s a whole thread and it’s super good: https://twitter.com/blkgirllostkeys/status/1298682752385069056?s=21
