My Gift of Silence

SamI’ve been diagnosed with ADHD combined for just over a year. I’m nearly 32 years old and, admittedly, it’s difficult for me to socialise and communicate with people, even my family.

If I need to reach out and talk about something important, then I like to write a letter to someone.

It’s easier for me to express myself in writing or through an email. I learned this since I was about 12 years old because I enjoy creative writing and it inspires me to use my voice in a different way, where I can hear myself and without feeling intimidated by other people.

I use my imagination, this way, to be distracted by interesting thoughts instead of negative ones. I hope that other individuals could benefit from this situation if they have similar problems.
