Diagnosed with ADHD
I decided to take matters into my own hands and did some research about my ‘mental state’. Through my mother, who is a psychotherapist, I stumbled upon ADHD. When I started reading about this ‘disorder’ I suddenly felt so much resemblance. Everything I struggled with my whole life suddenly fell into place. I got tested in a clinic specialized in ADHD, and yup at the end of the day I was diagnosed with ADHD. I felt pretty relived I have to admit, because if this wasn’t me why did I recognize so much?
Find the new me
I started to take medication, which was really hard in the beginning. But after a few weeks I can definitely tell that it really supports me in many ways. Something I have to deal with now, is to kinda find the new me. I used to give into temptations and impulses very easily, but because of the medication I oversee things better. I don’t really know yet, what decisions are the right ones to become a better, happier version of myself. I think I’ll find that out in the long run. What I do know is that working out makes me feel awesome. That’s why it needs to get a more prominent place in my life again in 2015.
Find your superpower
I shared all this with you, because ADHD or not, sometimes it’s a good thing to take a close look at your life. Are the things you do still making you happy? It doesn’t mean that if you do something a certain way for years, it the best way for you to do it. If you decide that it’s time for change, don’t expact it to happen over night. Habits die hard you know. For example: it took me years to gain, well uh a lot of weight. So it will take more than a few months to get rid of all this (emotional) baggage.
If you want to change more than one thing in your life, don’t force yourself to do it all at once. Don’t aim to be badass in every aspect of your life, but determine your focus.
We should all find our superpower and organize our life in such way, that we get the most out of it!
