Why can’t you just focus? Aren’t you listening? How do you function in normal life when you can’t seem to remember where you put anything?
Sound familiar? If you, like me, are living with ADHD, you might have heard some of these statements before. It’s a wholly misunderstood diagnosis. My ADHD is ADHD-Inattentive.

For me, it’s not an inability to focus but rather… focus is fragmented. While there are so many positive aspects to my life, and even my ADHD, the daily managing of the challenges of my ADHD brain takes a lot out of me. Thus, some lifehacks had to be developed!
