ADDISS – the ADHD Information Service is one of the best places to head, for any parents or adults who are struggling with problems around diagnosis or children with ADHD. This year they are celebrating their 25th anniversary and the great Andrea Bilbow OBE – who runs the organisation – is still organising events despite Covid derailing their plans for a packed programme. I am pleased to join her tomorrow to talk about Women and ADHD on Zoom – so come and join us here if you want to learn more here. Tickets are free here.
Titled “Fifty years of unanswered questions” – and under the section of “Real Life” Fiona Kinloch wrote an interview which came at diagnosis from the perspective of having a child with ADHD. I believe that this is how many women finally come round to the idea of having the disorder, otherwise – they just learn to cover up many of the struggles that they face throughout their life, coping with crises as they arise, and unnecessarily working twice as hard as others just to keep on top of their life.
