I hear you. You hate being defined by a label. After all, you’re a maverick; no mere acronym can fully reflect your brilliance and creativity. You are more than your ADHD. A lot more.
But there’s that little problem of procrastination. Or spending money impulsively. Or getting to work on time. Or finishing … anything.
So ADHD impacts your life, whether or not you acknowledge it. The trick is to hang on to your dreams while you reconcile with your ADHD. And that’s not easy out there on the range, riding solo through the barbs and burrs of snide remarks and disbelievers.
That’s why it’s a relief to gather with other folks who “get it.” There is reassurance and validation from knowing you are not alone. Even more than that, when you finally come to grips with your own special cocktail of ADHD, you can let the label fade into the background as a “new normal.”
It’s high time you stopped fighting with your ADHD, gave it a hug and moved on to the next phase of your life. And that’s what we’ll talk about during this special ADDA webinar with the original ADDiva, Linda Roggli.
Linda Roggli, PCC Linda Roggli was shocked to discover her own ADHD when she was in her mid-40s. She chafed at the label, although eventually she grew to accept the diagnosis. So she set out to connect with other women who were diagnosed after childhood and founded the ADDiva Network as a welcoming community.
In the meantime, she also wrote an award-winning book, Confessions of an ADDiva-midlife in the non-linear lane (2011) and contributed the women’s relationship chapter to The Distracted Couple: The Impact of ADHD on Relationships(2013).
Linda is a Professional Certified Coach who works with high-achieving ADHD women and ADHD couples through coaching and retreats. She is vice-president of the Board of Directors for ADDA and moderates its weekly webinar series. She is a sought-after speaker at conferences and blogs for ADDitude magazine.
