    Do people with ADHD require more or less sleep?

    Well require is the understanding that our bodies act differently and need different care than normal people.

    So no we require the same amount of sleep on that level. But we don't actually need as much sleep as everyone else because if we got the required amount of sleep then we would essentially over sleep and then deal with the consequences of getting too much sleep. These consequences are not good.

    It's like if we sleep the required sleep our brain says hey, we actually can do this why haven't we and then our body agrees, and we get sleepier and lazier and well it's not fun so it's almost like we have programmed ourselves to get what we consider the proper amount of sleep and we are back to normal. - Aries Hyper #ADHD #adhdwomen


    How ADHD Husbands Expect/Prefer to Be Treated by Their Neurotypical (Normal) Wives

    He would like for you to have a mild tone when starting conversations, prefer you give a request rather than demand, and accept that ADHD spouse has a right to his opinion, whether or not you like them.

    Don't set up a dynamic in which your spouse feels he can never do well enough for you. Even though you may feel like he makes some childish decisions, still give him some responsibilities ones you feel he can handle and when he advances, then congratulate him and give him more responsibilities, after a few years you will view him as the potential man you married. Then your respect levels for him will go up. #ADHD #adhdwomen #adhdmen #Marriage #Respect


    ADHD Women History

    Our understanding of ADHD has evolved significantly. Once considered a condition defined by measures of hyperactivity in children, ADHD is now understood to include inattentiveness and to potentially last a lifetime. Still, many outdated ADHD stereotypes persist both in and outside the medical community, hampering the study, detection, and treatment of ADHD in women today. Recent research predicts serious mental and physical health outcomes for women who are inadequately evaluated and treated due to noxious ADHD myths like the following:

    ADHD is a male disorder. Hyperactive boys, deemed disruptive and #unmanageable, were the ones referred to clinics. Early studies were based on the behaviors of these white hyperactive boys; these findings helped shape the diagnostic criteria and assessment scales still in use today.

    ADHD is a childhood disorder. ADHD was long classified as a Disruptive Behavior Disorder of Childhood, based on the hallmark of hyperactivity. Over time, it has become clear that ADHD does not resolve at puberty, and that inattentive symptoms persist longer than hyperactive symptoms.#adhdmen #adhdwomen #ADHD


    My ADHD Journey

    #ADHD #adhdwomen #adhdcoach I have been a follower of The Mighty for chronic health issues for at least a decade now, but just recently realized the ADHD community that exists on here. As an ADHD life coach I dedicate my life to advocating for the ADHD community and helping whomever I can to manage the challenges their ADHD brings to their lives while harnessing its strengths. I'm very proud of the journey I've started and just wanted to share how life changing it has been to look at my brain for what it is and accept it. I used to have so much self hate, but about a year ago I learned that hate doesn't make my life better. I still don't like having to fight myself to do certain tasks, but the kindness I now show myself has made a world of difference to my mood and health in general. This post isn't to boost my coaching, but to share that I have turned this disability around to help others struggling. I have cried so many times from the hurt this disorder can cause, and am just thankful that after all those years I finally received a diagnosis explaining why I am the way I am. Getting that answer almost 2 years ago turned my entire world view upside down and was the start of this incredible journey to healing my inner child who was so very neglected by far too many adults. Knowing the way my brain works has helped me overcome many of the challenges a neurotypical society creates for ADHDers. And lastly, having hope that I can find where I belong created a whole new path for my life; one that brought me to this new job and a more peaceful life. I am proud of what I have built, and plan to continue growing and helping as many other people as I can!

    what is the difference between add and adhd in adult women? and what are the signs? #Adultadd #AdultADHD #womenadd #adhdwomen

    I was told by my psychiatrist that I was labeled as having add in my previous doctors' notes. I had no idea, no one ever told me that before. I want to learn more and learn what the signs are.
