This Week’s Episode:
Do you say that you “are ADHD” or say that you “have ADHD?” Through people-first language, we show that people are more than their diagnosis. However, over time, I’ve come to appreciate how nuanced language is, and how important it is to let people express their identity. Living with ADHD is a story. As we change, so does our relationship with ADHD.
One way I’ve helped people capture their relationship with ADHD is an exercise I’ve been doing with my coaching groups. I call this exercise, “Dear ADHD.” I encourage members to write letters to their ADHD. Since this is ADHD Awareness Month, I invited members of our alumni membership community to write another letter to their ADHD. What you will hear on this episode is some of those members reading their “Dear ADHD” letters.
