My 10 Favorite Things About Having ADHD

12 · 04 · 21

There are many strengths that go along with our ADHD symptoms. Which strengths you have and express will depend on a lot of factors, and it’s not the same for everybody, but here are my 10 favorite things about having ADHD that have been true for me, I’ve found in my research and I see in many other ADHDers too.

Also — to be clear I am NOT saying ADHD is not a challenge or a legitimate disorder. I am not saying we shouldn’t get treatment. I am on Vyvanse myself and a big believer in multimodal treatment so that we can overcome those challenges and enjoy our strengths.
