Adult ADHD can create many personality conflicts with others. When one discovers they have ADHD, they can start to reflect on the past and how they acted or how they wish they behaved. Being able to reclaim one’s life and understand ADHD and cope with it is critical in living a successful life at work and home.
The article, “Has ADHD Warped Your Sense of Self? It’s Time to Reclaim Your Story — and Power.” by Dr Alise Cogger looks at how one can reclaim one’s life against ADHD. She states,
“Yes, ADHD is a constellation of inattentive, hyperactive, and impulsive symptoms accompanied by academic, professional, social, and other life impairments. But perhaps most importantly, ADHD is a web of deeply rooted memories and stories. These memories hold a long history that inform our perceptions of ourselves and our capabilities. They are hard to shake and may warp our self-esteem and understanding of who we are.”
