Navigating through the "tall grass" of ADHD

Tall grass FacebookA Springboard client, who was diagnosed with ADHD in adulthood, once described his life like this:

“I feel like I have always been walking through tall grass - my whole life - and every time I take a step, a blade hits me in the face.”

He went on to explain that because his life has always felt reactionary, he has never been able to figure out what he wants or even what he needs.

He has just been walking... trying not to mess up... trying not to get in trouble... trying not to have anyone notice that he is barely hanging on.

Having ADHD can feel like two steps forward, one step backwards. Because it can be hard to prioritize, chunk up tasks, and complete tasks in a linear way, it can be hard to feel momentum.

The earlier you can get diagnosed and assess what your brain/learning style is, the sooner you can get strategies in place so that you don’t feel like you are being “hit” in the face with every step.

If you are or you know someone who is suffering, reach out and start a conversation. A diagnosis is not an end point. Quite the opposite, it is a fresh start. To learn more about our Springboard ADHD/mental health assessment, check out this video.
