What it’s Like to be Diagnosed with ADHD as an Adult

5 · 07 · 21

I was diagnosed when I was 12, so I don’t have the experience of being diagnosed with ADHD as an adult — but ADHD coach Brett Thornhill does! Now that my channel is reaching more brains (and hearts!) I wanted to make an episode that might help them understand what it’s like — not only the actual process, but the emotional journey. In this episode, Brett Thornhill opens up about his own experience and I mostly try to stay out of his way.
