adhd-deluxe:

2 months ago I got an assignment on ADHD in Psychology. It’s due tomorrow and I have written one paragraph…

I had to write an email to my professors in my final year asking for an extension on an essay about adhd because of my adhd.


It began: “So I’m aware of the irony here…”

Just revisiting this to point put that they did give me an extension. I handed in the assessment, did pretty well on it, and the professor I most respected in the university (who ran the class) never said a word about it to me.

It turns out they didn’t care at all about the extended deadline, just that I was trying and that I gave them a heads up when I needed help.

Remember to ask for help when you need it, even if it makes you feel a little silly. Ask early if you can so that the people you’re asking have time to think about a response/plan of action, but if you find yourself stressing out 24hours out from a deadline still just ask.

This has been one of the hardest and most important things I have learnt over the last 10 years.

Ask for help. Ask early. Even if it’s scary.

You are not a burden.

You are not dumb.

You are not expected to already just “know” everything.

Needing help does not make you weak and asking for help makes you incredibly strong.

abcsofadhd:

Literally anyone around me: *is sad*

Me: “OH FUCK, WHAT DID I DO TO UPSET THEM!?”

Rejection Sensitive Dysphoria at work,

RSD but also our tendency to blame ourselves because of learned helplessness of previous times where we’ve fucked up (over and over). 

So we just kinda assume it was something we did. Which is incredibly sad.

But also maybe under-enforced emotonal boundaries. You are not entirely responsible for the emotions of the people around you. Don’t forget that.

Often this concept is just lumped into the word “motivation”, but with ADHD and executive function issues, it’s never quite so simple and each day can be a very different landscape.

Yep.

ADHDers usually do so at the start if a relationship, and when it wears off, they feel like they must’ve gotten bored of the relationship.

But nope, you’re bored and in a relationship, not bored of it.
