Living with ADHD: My Life as a Distractible Dinosaur


As someone with ADHD, I often feel like a dinosaur in a world full of well-organized and focused humans. I'm constantly getting sidetracked by shiny objects and new ideas, like a T-Rex chasing after a butterfly.


But over time, I've learned to embrace my inner dinosaur and find ways to make my ADHD work for me. Here are some of my top tips for living with ADHD and embracing your inner dino:


1. Embrace the Power of the Roar

When you have ADHD, it can be tough to stay focused on a task for long periods of time. But instead of beating yourself up about it, try embracing your distractible nature and letting out a mighty roar every time you get sidetracked. It might not help you finish that report on time, but it sure feels good to let out a good roar every now and then.


2. Channel Your Inner Stegosaurus

Stegosaurus may have had tiny brains, but they made up for it with some impressive armor plates on their back. When you're feeling scatterbrained, try channeling your inner Stegosaurus and putting up some mental armor to keep distractions at bay. Whether it's noise-cancelling headphones, a secluded workspace, or a well-organized to-do list, find the tools that work best for you and stick with them.


3. Learn to Love the Chase

One of the downsides of ADHD is that it can be tough to finish what you start. But instead of viewing it as a negative, try embracing the thrill of the chase. Pursue new ideas and interests with abandon, and don't be afraid to switch gears and try something new when you feel yourself getting bored. Who knows what kind of exciting adventures you'll find when you let yourself chase after the things that make you feel alive?



4. Use Your ADHD Superpowers for Good

While ADHD can certainly be a challenge at times, it also comes with some pretty impressive superpowers. Many people with ADHD are highly creative, intuitive, and empathetic, and can excel in fields like art, music, and counseling. So instead of viewing your ADHD as a liability, try to find ways to use your superpowers for good and make a positive impact on the world.


So there you have it, my fellow distractible dinos. Embrace your inner T-Rex, channel your inner Stegosaurus, and use your ADHD superpowers for good. Who knows, maybe one day we'll all be ruling the world again like our prehistoric ancestors.
