Growing up with a healthy self-esteem was very difficult when words such as hyper and clumsy were used to describe me.
I learned to love myself because God loved me first!
I was a good student, graduating in the top 10% of my high school class. Since focus was a challenge, I had to work harder to succeed.
I learned to use outlines and take notes to identify similarities and differences and to increase recall and understanding.
ADHD was exhausting!
At work, I have often been described as very organized. What people don’t know is how difficult it was to get there.
I learned to set goals, make lists and stay structured.
