Finally home after a 13 hour day.

1:1 #coaching all morning, leading a case conference at a school in Rugby this afternoon and then hosting our ADHD Wise Peterborough support group this evening with the help of my daughter Becca and the lovely Jacki Cairns.

Tired but happy. Feeling like mine is an ideal job in many ways for an #ADHD er. Varied and purposeful.

Tomorrow is easier so I get to recover as Monday was bonkers too!

It's been 7 years since we discovered #ADHD is part of our family dynamic. 7 years since Kiki first tried meds.
She was 19 then and was already diagnosed with Aspergerโ€™s. I flipped and didn't believe it at first. But the meds helped so much that it was undeniable. Will was diagnosed soon, after and then I followed. Becca took a while longer but is also diagnosed.

Knowledge is power. Meds are not a cure all. Life got better almost immediately after each diagnosis because with it comes with an understanding and a framework for adjustments.

Each of us is living out best life. It's not easy, but together, we have got this. ๐Ÿฅฐ

Stew on timer in pressure cooker.
3.5 mile run complete.
Now for a shower and return something to the shops before I forget, lose the receipt or leave it too late.

This is a productive day but the problem with #ADHD is that we are consistently inconsistent. What I would say though is that if you champion the good days, there will be more of them. Positivity moves us forward and negativity draws us back.

Iโ€™ve struggled lately, but thatโ€™s okay. I will struggle again. But for now, Iโ€™m going to enjoy my day of feeling like the boss of my own life.
