What it's like to have ADHD: An adult woman's perspective

What ADHD is like for a womanLast week, New York Magazine posted an article on their website called What It's Like to Have ADHD as a Grown Woman. This first person account by Rae Jacobson talks about the impact of the public's misunderstanding of adult ADHD, the frustration of not knowing what was "wrong" with her and then, the relief of a diagnosis. Rae's experience is obviously unique to her, but the story sounds similar to many of the stories we've heard from adults at the clinic.

With a diagnosis, you can start naming your symptoms for what they are, and separating them from your identity. We strongly recommend checking the article out!
