Since I have begun posting more about my own ADHD diagnosis, I have had people message and ask how I went about it. I realised that there is a wealth of information out there about what to do if you suspect your child has ADHD but very minimal if you’re an adult. This is possibly due to the misconception, even in the medical world, that it’s something you grow out of or because ADHD can manifest in different ways once you are an adult.
Recently I found myself in conversation with someone who clearly had never had the misfortune of dealing with the public mental health system. The conversation had started about NDIS and the attempted introduction of independent assessments. It was at this point that the topic moved to access and people accessing the NDIS, people who this person believed were stealing resources from those who ‘really’ need it. They believe that those with a mental health condition should access the public mental health system, not steal resources from those who need the NDIS.
Just do one thing, and then you’ll feel better. How many times have you heard that phrase used. Hell, how many times have you used that phrase yourself either internally or on someone else. The trouble with ‘just’ one thing is that that one thing is made up of many little things. Every. Single. One.

In my last post I talked about removing the guilt from the things that I do to make my life easier. In this post I want to talk about exactly what those things are. My days are by no means smooth sailing and my house will never be a show home but doing the simple things, and giving myself room to make mistakes, make my days easier.
Long time, no write. I considered letting this space go recently. My hosting came up for renewal and I wasn’t sure I could justify the cost anymore. It’s been a while since I had even looked at my blog, let alone written anything on it. I just couldn’t quite let it go though. This space opened up a lot of conversations over the years. It allowed me to *meet* a great range of people.
