Ever wonder what it’s like to be in your kid’s ADD/ADHD brain? Or your spouse’s? Or, do you have ADD/ADHD yourself? Are you interested in a little validation that sometimes it gets a bit gnarly in your brain?
This 3+ minute video is truly amazing. It captures the essence of what it can be like to live in a brain that is moving a thousand miles a minute, tunes in to everything “shiny” or “attractive,” and has a creative energy that has a mind of it’s own.
One of the hallmarks of ADHD is that it looks different for everyone who has it. But there is a unifying theme that this video illuminates, a common experience for those with ADHD: it ain’t easy paying attention to one thing at a time when the world is such a fascinating place!
If every parent, sibling and teacher of someone with ADHD watches this video, maybe there will be a little more compassion, and a little less judgment, for kids and adults who are achieving great things — despite the challenging circumstances of a brain that’s wired to receive all radio channels at once!
