I’m new here!

Hi, my name is OrangePumpkin72. I'm here because I’m looking for tips and tools for people diagnosed later in life with ADHD. It explains my lifelong struggles with completing tasks that are given at work and in my personal life. While it explains my struggles in life, I need to develop tools to minimize the issue, and maximize success going forward.

New Here

Hi everyone! New here. Just over a year ago (Spring 2023) I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, Type 2 Diabetes, Osteoarthritis in ankles, feet, knees, hips, wrists, hands, just about every joint, and Rosacea. Prior to that the only thing I had to deal with was depression. Those were the days!! LOL Now I am on so many medications, which really bothers me. I work full time. I am tired all the time, not to mention sore. Hubby says he understands, but I don't think he REALLY understands. Our adult kids certainly don't get it. I guess I am hoping to follow along with others who may be feeling the same as myself, both physically and mentally. Some days I just want an 'out of order' sign for my forehead.

Motivational Monday: Own Your Diabetes Journey

“You Have To Own Your Diabetes Journey” - Anonymous

To take ownership of your journey with diabetes and your blood sugar numbers, it’s important to stay informed and educated about diabetes and how to manage it. This includes regularly monitoring your blood sugar levels, understanding how different foods and activities affect your levels, and working closely with your healthcare team to create a personalized treatment plan.

It’s also important to stay motivated and make lifestyle changes that can improve your overall health and well-being.

Remember to never be afraid to ask questions and advocate for yourself in your journey with diabetes.

Motivational Monday: Set Realistic Expectations

“Everybody is different and it’s not going to be 100% everyday. Expecting yourself to be a certain number everyday, all day, everyday, when it’s not going to be will stress you out.” - Anonymous

One way to overcome this is to focus on overall trends and patterns rather than getting caught up in specific numbers. It's also important to remember that each person's body and health journey is unique. Listen to your body and make adjustments accordingly.

Seeking support from your healthcare team and connecting with others who have similar experiences can also be helpful in managing expectations and finding ways to cope with individual differences.
