Women with ADHD or Executive Function Challenges
Many women are not diagnosed with ADHD until adulthood. Girls' symptoms often fly under the radar because they tend to be more inattentive than hyperactive. Young girls are socialized to hide their struggles and are more likely to internalize the challenges they face. Consequently, their symptoms are often misinterpreted as anxiety or depression, which may actually be a byproduct of ADHD.
Women with ADHD often experience two things: that their life is out of control and shame. These feelings are caused by difficulties managing their time and belongings, chronic disorganization, and feeling overwhelmed and unable to keep up with personal and professional daily demands.
As exhausted and overwhelmed as you feel, ADHD is a very treatable disorder. Coaching can help you develop the tools needed to manage your ADHD instead of your ADHD managing you.
