משוב שכזה אחרי סדנה מושקעת לבנות @שאות:) פתחתי להן חלון לעולמם של לקויי הלמידה והפרעת הקשב. מקווה שיעשו עמם רק טוב. #הדרכתהורים #הפרעתקשב #אסטרטגיותלמידה #לקויותלמידה #adhdmom #adhdcoach #adhdisreal #אורלי_כהן_הדרכת_הורים #אימוןילדיםונוער
When I was little, I dreamed every day that something would happen to me like what happens to Harry Potter when Hargrid walks into his life. I knew I was different. To find out I was a wizard would have been a dream come true. Last night my Moo was crying and telling me that when the phone rings in her classroom she hopes that it’s for her to be dismissed. She does it every time and she was sobbing telling me that it’s never for her As 4th grade gets harder, Moo will have to work harder and she’s already working so incredibly hard. We’ve made the decision to have her officially evaluated for #ADHD. I hate the idea of giving her meds but if I can save her from a broken heart I will do whatever it takes. Meds at her age would have been a life saver for me and I didn’t get them until I was 16. Her self esteem is already plummeting. I need to nip this in the bud!! #adultadhd #happhypershiny #adhdisreal

Too many choices, too many decisions and too much confusion because I started too many things. Anyone know how that feels and strategies to end it? . . . . #adhd #adhdisreal #forgetful #confusion #distracted #distraction #indecisive #procastinate #overthink #toomanyideas #look #help #adhdproblems #anxiety #stress #adhdtribe

#winterblues #seasonaldepression Or just plain fucking #hatewinter 🌬 . I feel you. I've been getting it too. Don't get me wrong, I love the snow, the fresh, crisp air, and all that shit. BUT ... does it have to be dark at 5pm? Can the Sun not wake the fuck up a little earlier in the morning? For real though ... . I believe change comes from making a conscious decision and then staying mad committed to that decision until you're doing it without even thinking about it! That's why I've decided to raise the bar, and set F*n high expectations for 2018! . Want to learn how I overcome all my seasonal BS? Fill out the form in the comments, and let's have some freakin fun! 💃
Today I got the most wonderful email from my son's teacher letting me know what an awesome job he is doing at school. Today I feel that everything I do is totally worthwhile. Today I know I made the right choice in starting this journey and stopping adhd medicine. Today I am so so proud of my son for embracing (like an absolute trooper), all the changes we have made to his diet, routine, supplements. Today is great. #proudmom #proudmama #healingadhdnaturally
Dagens foredrag: på en special skole - en STU skole - hvor jeg var inviteret til at levere 2 timers foredrag om ADHD og AUTISME.

Exactly. And it’s so hard to see.... #TruthAboutADHD
Truth
According to the CDC, the rate of ADHD is increasing dramatically in the United States every year. Following are the kids ages 5 – 17 diagnosed with ADHD: • 1998 – 1 in 16 kids • 2003 – 1 in 13 kids • 2007 – 1 in 11 kids • 2011 - 1 in 9 kids The percentages of those kids on stimulant medicine is sitting somewhere between 70 – 80% of those kids. This is the front-line treatment plan from most Medical Drs these days. There is so much that can be done before one goes down this part, the problem is most medical Drs are not trained or aware of these other treatment paths. When I asked our Pediatrician about those other options, he closed down the subject immediately, stating it had absolutely no merit. 12 months on I know there is merit, I can see the changes in my son. This is the reason I have started sharing my own journey. To help others out there be aware of the options. To make it easy for them to find and easy to understand. Every kid and family is different and so it is an individual’s choice if they give their child medication or not. I will never ever criticize anyone for the choices they make for their family. #healingkids #naturalremedies
Every time... 🙄 #TruthAboutADHD
Teach me your ways.
Not everyone is going to understand dyscalculia or even ADHD. Even the ones who love us the most. Be patient with them. Be kind. Speak truth to yourself. They love you. Someone not understanding you doesn’t mean they don’t love you. My husband doesn’t quite get it. But he has watched some videos Ive sent his way, read some material that I felt was good, and is working towards understanding this part of me. Hey now, we are still newly weds almost 3 yrs later! Maybe he has yet to see the worse! But we work together with our our money and plans. We budget together. It’s funny when I go to the bank. When I arrive at the bank i always get lost and confused in my brain with the what and the how. how much money I’m suppose to get out again? I have to count way too many times, I to recalculate way too many times (would be unnecessary times for average person. I know cause I’m married to one!). But it’s still working for us. And I still am good at not spending but saving the money!!! #dyscalculia dyscalculia #marriedwithadhd #mathdisability #schoolisfun #daveramsey #adhdawareness #adhdisreal #adhdadult #adultadhd #tryingtoremeber #ilovemybrain #
He's exhausting and so hyper. You have no idea the level of avoidance I try to attain to no avail. Can you even imagine what he did to achieve this while they were on my face? #yeahtheyarereaders #coffeemonkey #adhdisreal #sendhelp
Sometimes it’s hard to be in the present! Sometimes it’s not. Today, for about 3 straight hours…it was really really hard. I’m sleepy now, haha that was so much effort!
the very real and exhaustive conundrum of ADHD organized only to get disorganized, forgotten,blurred and the process starts all over again, an often slothful pace of process. This is the paradox. Understood exactly by most ADHD effected people. Almost impossible, and exhaustive to explain to others- often perceived as histrionic, flaky, neurotic and self-sabotaging. It’s not. It’s an example working through daily life slowly but surely for me. More torturous and exhaustive for me x1000 than anyone else frustrated or concerned witnessing what is not cognitive decline, a mental illness, or perfectionism. It’s my ADHD brain and it’s struggle working within a non-ADHD world. I’m lucky to have many supportive people in my life concerning this...but it still is a major aspect of myself that feels such a need to be truly understood. But I also need to remind myself that it’s a loaded request. Who really knows or can make sense anyone, let alone themselves at times? So I focus now on being ok with myself, my strengths and strategies to compensate for my struggles. Significant progress has been made, invisibly. this is everyday for everything. why i am exhausted 2 hours into my morning because i used up so much brain energy. But yeah- grad school is the ultimate provocation. I’m as steadfast as I am depleted. Anyhow- Hi, this is me advocating for others like me- destroying the stigma- distracted from writing my paper, but my paper is about ADHD so i think it’s a decent excuse. 🖤🧠☯️ #adhdawareness #adultadhd #adhdisreal #adhdwomen #adhd #fightthestigma #espo
“It is growing up different. It is extreme hypersensitivity. It is a bottomless pit of feeling you're failing, but three days later, you feel you can do anything, only to end the week where you began. It is not learning from your mistakes. It is distrusting people because you have been hurt enough. It is moments of knowing your pain is self inflicted, followed by blaming the world. ...It is a hyper focus, so intense about what bothers you, that you can’t pay attention to anything else, for very long. It is a never-ending routine of forgetting things. It is a boredom and lack of contentment. It wears you out. It wears everyone out. You misinterpret everything, and you allow your creative mind to fill the gaps with the same old chains that bind you. It is speaking and acting without thinking. It is disconnecting from the ones you love because your mind has taken you back to what you can’t let go of. It is risk taking, thrill seeking and moodiness that never ends. You hang your hope on “signs” and abandon reason for remedy. It is devotion to the gifts and talents you have been given, that provide temporary relief. It is the latching onto the acceptance of others—like a scared child abandoned on a sidewalk. It is a drive that has no end, and without “focus” it takes you nowhere. It is the deepest anger when someone you love hurts you, and the greatest love when they don't. It is beauty when it has purpose. It is agony when it doesn’t. It is called Attention Deficit Disorder.” • • • • • I was diagnosed with “ADHD” earlier this year. I can’t put into words the extent to which discovering this diagnosis has impacted my understanding of myself and my life. I will be forever grateful for everything that led me to it. One of my biggest struggles is not knowing how to articulate how my “ADHD” brain affects me; it is hard for me to even understand it myself. This quote is the best description of how I feel living with “ADHD” in a neurotypical world. 🧠*Found picture on Pinterest*🧠 #adhd #adhdawareness #adultadhd #adhdlife #adhdisreal #adhdproblems
I forgot I was still wearing my bath robe haha. Good convo starter! I have new friends lol.
This is so true!!! #TruthAboutADHD
To be in the mind of a child with #ADHD ... it never snows in San Antonio, TX. Leave it to this beauty to think this is the most magical thing to ever happen. #ADHDisreal #adhdawareness #magical #sanantonio #itsbeginningtolookalotlikechristmas #mind
Just creatively organized 😊 #TruthAboutADHD
I’m proud because I noticed something that other people didn’t notice and I helped them save/ make $$$$$.😀 I also didn't notice until it was too late that I overcooked breakfast this morning 🤷🏻‍♀️
Yet other days I get anxious. #AlwaysUnpredictable
Normal is so overrated. #TruthAboutADHD
#Wednesdaywisdom You’re not imagining it. It really is harder for some people with ADHD to lose weight. They crave & along with little impulse control, can take out a box, bag, carton of whatever makes them feel better in no time. Trying to substitute protein is helpful. ⠀ #adhdweightloss #truth #struggleisreal #adhdisreal #adhdisnotfake #adhdparenting #livelovelaugh #lifestooshort #onedayatatime
Richard Branson is famously known as having ADHD and Dyslexia. This quote really highlights how important it is for people with ADHD to do what they find interesting. People with ADHD usually excel is subjects they are most interested in as the interest in it almost acts as a 'medication' (a release of dopamine) for them. This means they usually concentrate better in that subject and do better. It is important for ADHDers to do what they like! Don't take it from me, take it from Richard Branson. #adhd #adhdawareness #adhdprobs #adhdlife #adhdproblems #adhdmom #adhdisreal #adhdbrain
I will always love my baby the same and be there to protect her and be her voice when she can’t #educateyourself #adhd #adhdawareness #icantkeepccalm #overzealous #adhdisreal #lifewithadhd
