ADHD is a heck of a thing. And it can be simultaneously frustrating and extremely liberating to realize that you’ve got it.
Frustrating because, I mean, look at all the crap you’ve gotta deal with. And liberating because at least now you better know how to approach your own brain.
And the best way to approach any brain is with, yanno, memes and tweets and stuff. So let’s get into that, before we forget.
11. New tricks
And I’m an old dog, so, all the harder.
Having ADHD is basically finding new ways to trick your brain into doing the stuff you want it to do, until you die.

10. The downhill slope
Who are these mythical unicorns y’all have been talking to.
Some psychologists: most people tend to grow out of ADHD when they're adults
Every single person I know with ADHD: it got worse

9. The holy trinity
At least it all balances out, kind of?
With ADHD I have exactly three types of work days:
✔️ Get absolutely nothing done
✔️ Get 4 hours of work done, at a random time of day
✔️ Get 40 hours of work done in 8 hours

8. Card, please
Might as well just get it tattooed on you and enter the number manually at this point.

7. A healthy diet
All things in moderation, but definitely all things.
Today I had 800 mg of caffeine, exercised for 2 hours, ate literally 80 pizza rolls, and did a facemask. The line between self care and self destruction is a fine one but god do I walk it hard brother

6. Tonight, tonight
I’ll lose my crap tonight…
It’s already tonight?? What’s next? Tomorrow??? Fuck this.

I think that was the writers trying to express how hard it is to craft the MILLIONTH EPISODE OF SPONGEBOB.
the episode of spongebob when he procrastinates writing his essay and is only capable of writing the word ??? & eventually burns his house down really foreshadowed college

4. True connection
It was so nice talking to you until I forgot you existed.
i am great at reaching out to reconnect with people and even better at forgetting to respond after we do

3. Are y’all ok?
Very obviously we are not.
2. The memory hole
Do not ever trust your own brain. That thing has been out to get you from day one and you know it.
1. Under pressure
It takes a lot to crack me, but rest assured that I am going to crack.
Best of luck to you getting done whatever else you had to do today. Clicking this link probably wasn’t a great start, but you’ll do better now.
