Inspired by the attached blog by Grace Under Pressure, Sarah Forbes.

My Will (16 #ADHD) has been great in many respects this summer but getting him to sort his room is tough!

I showed him this and at first he was cross and said I should have just asked him to do it. I laughed and said ’yeah right’ because I am always asking. I sealed up the rest of the bag and said he could have the rest as long as he didn't cheat on this list.

He then started telling me that he could get at least 6 skittles already because he has made is bed and has almost no crockery in his room. 🤣🤣 The lies he tells himself! Anyway, I can hear him doing things in his room so 🤞!

Good morning #parents and #carers.
How are you doing?

If you haven't already, please book your children in for an eye test.
There is a significant correlation between vision difficulties and #ADHD. One does not necessarily cause the other, it's just that they potentially share generic and environmental risk factors.

Will (16 #ADHD) applied to our local McDonald's to earn some money during A-Levels. He had his interview and felt it had gone fairly well. As the days ticked by without hearing anything, he reflected on the answers he gave and felt he could have done better. He said even if he didn't get the job, he was glad he went to the interview as he learnt some lessons and would do better next time. Great attitude Will!

And today he heard that he has got the job and starts on Thursday, which is #GCSE results day, so that will be a massive day for him. All being well, he’ll start his A-Levels the following week.

He has had a blast this summer and as much I have pulled my hair out and worried myself silly at times, he is good and all is well!

I’ve been struggling since my husband brought his business back home.
Nothing personal to him or those he works with. But obviously, they bring distractions that make it harder than when I had the office and my home to myself. And obviously my #ADHD ways are a challenge for them too.

So I'm preparing to move back into the spare room with all my mess and chaos. This desk was mahogany but I want it to be white before I move it upstairs. It’ll be lovely when it is done.

This is me investing time and effort in what I need to make my workspace a positive place to be. This is me practicing what I preach and setting things up the way I want, need and deserve them to be, without spending lots of money. I'm really enjoying doing it. 🤗

The good things about ADHD: ‘It’s my superpower’

And on Channel 5 News

Becoming ADHD WISE

With us you are in good hands... Jannine Harris MA PCGE QTLS, Founder of ADHD WISE is an MSc Psychology student at the University of Liverpool. Jannine is brutally honest and open about her life with ADHD and is passionate about ‘Promoting Positive Outcomes‘.

At last! We are pleased to say that ADHD is more widely understood and accepted than it has ever been before.  There are a growing number of us who are willing to talk openly and honestly about how ADHD impacts our lives – the good, the bad, and the ugly!

ADHD can affect anyone, and it’s okay.  We’re different, but we can and do function in society in our unique and bombastic way. We are often the most creative people you know and are often drawn to caring professions or careers where we can feel we make a difference.

If you, your child, a family member, a child in your class, an employee, your partner, have ADHD, they have had it since birth, and will always have it.  If you encourage them to accept themselves and be allowed to thrive, your time around them will be full of love and entertainment. Life around a thriving ADHD’er means never being bored or lonely.

ADHD Wise UK has been set up by adults who are diagnosed with ADHD themselves and use it to good effect.  We want to champion the possibilities, and ‘promote positive outcomes’ for those with ADHD. It’s a tough condition to live with at times.  There are some of us who barely manage to survive, let alone thrive.  We are here for them because merely surviving is never enough. We all deserve more than that.

There is a reason for everything and a host of potential solutions to every ADHD issue.  ADHD Wise UK is entirely ‘Solution Focussed’ and will always endeavour to help you to navigate the challenges ahead, and find a positive way forward.
