Military and ADHD

Living with ADHD in the Military is one of the hardest things I’ve had to do. Mostly because they have high standards of excellence and require you to maintain those standards.

For the longest time I didn’t know what was wrong with me. Why couldn’t I just do the same things everybody else was doing? It wasn’t until recently that I started actually researching ADHD and went to therapy. It completely opened my eyes to all the challenges I’ve been facing and that it was all linked to my ADHD.

I have now accepted my ADHD and I have been happier and more comfortable in my own skin than I have in a long time. I’m glad that we as a community are finally bringing our struggles into the light. Happy ADHD Awareness Month!!
