You feel this way because people with adhd get shitted on constantly. My mother in law, who owns a daycare, makes jokes about adhd all the time, and me, who got diagnosed at 7 have been struggling with it my whole life. Teachers, family, friends, everyone gives shit and think that adhd isn’t real. It’s a very difficult.

I’ve been in therapy for 10 years. I’ve bounced from maybe 5-6 therapist in that time. None of whom I liked. Last year I went to see a new therapist in my town and after one session, like you, I just felt so understood and I had opened up to her about things I hadn’t opened up to any of my other therapist, some who I saw for a few years. So I’ve been seeing her since and my mental health and my grasp on my mental illnesses has changed tremendously. It’s night and day how I handle situations. Which comes in very handy in a pandemic!

I felt like this this year as well. I was having trouble breathing all the time, kept getting infections etc.. was told I just had anxiety to start with. Finally found a great Dr and went through all these different tests to find that I had chronic asthma and was suffering from asthma attacks. It’s finally being treated. But it was the best feeling just knowing where all of my problems were coming from, like you said, i had all these different symptoms and no idea how to fix them. Then bam. Simple series of tests to find all those symptoms and problems were a result of this one thing.
I’m so happy you got a diagnosis 😊👍 that’s amazing.

I remember here a while back you had mentioned the skin picking disorder that you have and I thought "thats cool i have the same problem" i just didnt know what it was. After watching you explain your adhd diagnosis I really felt like you were describing me. You have opened my eyes to a possibility I would have never thought of. Thank you so much for sharing your story!

Congrats on getting a diagnosis, it's so freeing. Did the therapist tell you about RSD? I had an ADHD diagnosis for a decade before I heard about RSD, 80% of folks with ADHD have it. It was a huge piece of the puzzle for me and explained some really disabling symptoms I had been dealing with my whole life. It felt like how you describe your ADHD diagnosis.

I was wondering if that’s what your diagnosis was going to be. I was diagnosed with ADHD when I was in my late 20s. For women, the more things we have to balance like marriage, children, work etc, the more our adhd symptoms get exasperated

I just got diagnosed today and this video really helped me. The way you explained about it being like a pyramid where these therapists or psychiatrists point out so many things you deal with, but they all contribute to this big category that is ADHD is exactly how I feel. Thank you for being so open and honest about your journey!!

Thank you for giving information about this!! ADHD is very hard to diagnosed because people only see the tip of the ice berg but never the other side of it!! 💕 Also, as an educator, I love how you respected Flynn’s decision. Just a tip!! Maybe you can help him learn the sounds of the letters, so when you teach him, he’d know how to sound them and eventually blend the words together 😊

I missed some of your videos so I was going back to get caught up so you may not see this comment since it's been a while since you posted it. When you were talking about your therapy appointment it brought to my mind Meghan Rienks. She also has talked about having anxiety, skin picking, and ADHD plus she is also a YouTuber. I don't know if you know her or heard of her before, she is more in the beauty/lifestyle/podcast side of YT. She may be someone you could talk to who sounds like you may have somethings in common with. I know it's hard to relate to people but I just thought I would mention it since it came to mind.

Hey Colleen! I know I’m a few weeks behind butttt I did want to say that I understand your feelings at the end when you’re talking about a therapist being like “hey this is a thing and how it impacts people” I had the same exact experience but with PTSD. I never realized that I could have ptsd because I didn’t realize a lot of things I experienced were actually considered traumas.
I’m rambling, my point is, there are people out here who understand you. Take it easy and sending you guys love ❤️

Colleen, I have had ADHD my whole life. All my siblings have it. It helps to know how your brain works and how it is different than other people. I want you to know that you can do this. I have all those things that you described. You can overcome this. And by the way, this is the first video I have watched of yours and I just thought I should share.

We went to this exact same pumpkin patch! I think about a week after y'all? I wanted to pet the goats, but it was much too crowded...you were smart to go first thing in the morn! Normally we do Live Oak Canyon, but with the pandemic, we stayed in the valley/Encino area. Hope you guys had fun, and that your son enjoyed seeing all the pumpkins. Fall was a fav part of my childhood.
I also recently learned about myself actually having ADHD as well. It felt comforting to feel seen by the diagnosis, but also pretty frustrating to only just now be figuring this out at 29. Take care, and hang in there! You're clearly a loving mom, wife, person in general, and I think you've managed to achieve tons despite the ADHD setbacks. Love to you

I have ADHD and I resonate so much with all my mental issues stemming from ADHD. I've been doing so much research about it over the last few years and it's really a poorly named disorder because it deals with way more than hyperactivity and inattention.

flashofquiksilver - 25 dager siden
I know exactly what you felt with that Colleen! I actually thought I was ADHD when I was like 16 (I'm 30 now) because I struggled with regulating my attention and occasionally had "outbursts" of energy that threw people off because I was often quite introverted or quieter (not quite reserved, but just not being exuberant all the time), but I couldn't quite line up the descriptions for ADHD in males with what I was feeling about myself. I and my family doctor kind of convinced me that I didn't have ADHD, for reasons like "i find it really hard to focus for long periods of time... except when I'm reading, then I can't put a book down.. so that must mean I just don't care about the tasks I'm struggling with, not that I have an attention deficit" or things like "I get really into a video game but then without fail, I just end up moving on to something else without finishing the game.. not that I don't like that game I played, but I just moved on to something else.. so I just need to stick with things to the end, and stop flaking out".. It also feels like I'm 2 people, the outgoing bubbly "involved in all the clubs at school/work" kind of girl, and the more intelligent and introspective, dark and nerdy girl. It's almost bi-polar but kind of not, like a very mild case of it. And I have little OCD things that only apply for certain situations, so they're not full fledged OCD. And some things I can be obsessed with for a time, and MUST engage / play / etc with that thing... but then when I'm obsessed about something else, I can't handle engaging with that first thing. It's definitely a case of not being able to regulate my attention evenly.. either I'm obsessing about something, or really struggling to engage at all with that thing/task/activity. I also have a bad case of executive functioning issues, where I want to do things (or I need to do things), but I fight internally to make myself do those things. Even something that I absolutely love or am dying to do, I struggle actually making it happen.
Also I have TERRIBLE time management, because I've learned I have a poor sense of time in general. When I pre-schedule everything, including pre-scheduling extra time for tasks, then I do really well. But if I don't give extra time for tasks, then I end up being really late. And then there's the anxiety (social, letting things get to me, over thinking things, imagining false situations/narratives because I keep thinking that people feel certain ways about me that aren't true, feeling stressed about completing easy tasks that I can do and have done before with no issues, etc). It's very draining to have ADHD, because there's just so much going on in your head, and before I figured out what was going on, it felt like I was just failing at life, like I can't even show enough severity of the issues I struggle with (like not being truly OCD, or Bipolar, or anything like that), they're all just such minor cases that I wondered if I actually had any of these disorders.
So I totally get your relief in knowing that what you were feeling or experiencing wasn't just you leaning into insignificant issues and making them bigger, or that you weren't experiencing anything at all. It was definitely a relief to figure out what was going wrong, because once you know what the actual problem is, you can at least start moving forward from it.

It's not different, it's the same diagnosis. ADHD is largely associated with children and ADD is largely associated with adults as hyperactivity isn't as common. It's still the same clinical diagnosis.

I love your courage in showing the world that mental health is a conversation we must have. There is no shame in it, yet fear often keeps us silent in spite of that truth. The world is full of beautiful, caring, capable human beings who bravely get up each day and face these struggles and it is time for us to embrace and support one another through it. Life is already hard enough without loneliness to make it worse. Thank you for leading the way.

Therapy is so U.S., it's like one on one then one on one. ADD and you are functioning at such a higher lever than most people as you are on camera and made a 2 season series. I mean come on. I self diagnosed myself to depression and Generalised Anxiety Disorder. I stick with it, especially in time of pandemic and isolation, and people behaving badly makes me more afraid than an actual virus.....Love.

Colleen, don't feel like you have to fix every little thing about yourself that you don't like or find annoying! If nobody had those little things, then we wouldn't be unique. Everybody has one thing you're sensitive and insecure about; it could be anxiety, ADHD, picky-eater, phobia-controlled, height, weight, anything, but those things are what make you you and me me.

GIRL.....that is literally exactly what happened to me when I was finally diagnosed with adhd!!! I didn't get diagnosed until I was 30 and my life CHANGED when I got put on Adderall. Like omg....not perfect...but way better. I am an RN and I often wonder how much more I could have accomplished in my life if anyone had diagnosed me earlier. And looking back on my life, it is SO OBVIOUS! Lord lol. I was in therapy for years because I ODed when I was 17 and no one connected the dots. I actually figured it out from watching a how to adhd video about how women present differently!

It can feel overwhelming to come to terms with a new thing like a diagnosis or identity. I was diagnosed with AD(H)D when I was 9, but only very recently have I discovered that it heavily affects my life as an adult too. I always thought it was about my inability to do homework and focus in school. Watching the YouTube channel How To ADHD has put a lot of things into perspective for me by explaining how we're wired and finding good coping mechanisms to function better. You're not alone, Colleen, and ADHD is super duper common! Thank you for speaking openly about it here :)

Yes!!! THANK YOU for sharing this! I was just diagnosed myself at 33! When I really looked into the definition of ADHD, I literally checked ALL THE BOXES! It was so validating to get my diagnosis. I have struggled with anxiety and depression and OCD most of my life! It all fit like a puzzle piece. Also, it can look different in males versus females. I am a perfectionist, so I never let anyone see my struggle. I just kept trying to work harder. I excelled in school due to people pleasing and not wanting to let anyone down! I have found the most amazing community on Instagram of ADHDers! Welcome! I totally understand you! It is not so isolating and lonely anymore! I have a passion to educate more people on ADHD and mental health in general!!! I love you and your family and content. I have been watching you for years, and I am so grateful you and I have both found answers!! You have my constant support!

Your depiction of your problems and how they affect you hit me hard because that's exactly what I'm going through right now. I'm also trying to get a diagnosis for adhd and my therapist fully supports me in that. Where I live tho he can't diagnose me and the person who's like in charge of my treatment and if I can get moved forward in the process of getting diagnosed doesn't believe that I could have it. Like he literally said it isn't probable because I've been good at school and getting good grades. It's very frustrating, and I'm so glad for you!

Sending you so much love and positivity! You should look up the health nut on YouTube. She’s an incredible therapist who talks about issues and helps with advice. Love you ❤️

I think I commented about looking into this a few months ago. I connected the dots with all your things, mostly because we’re in the same boat. Its such a BIG FEELING. And its a process to look back into your past and see how much time spent trying to fit in, and trying to pull through what other consider no issues at all. I was 25 when I got my adhd disgnosis. It is such a shame that women are overlooked in this diagnosis.
