DIRTY LAUNDRY: Why adults with ADHD are so ashamed and what we can do to help
About this deal
I have a feeling the author is struggling with something more than ADHD or maybe is on the extreme side of the spectrum. I have a great partner too and we are working on how we deal with some things together- we might use some of your tips. So I particularly related with that plaguing, awful worry that you must be broken or somehow incompetent at being a person. It has genuinely helpful advice from the perspective of someone with adhd and someone living with someone with adhd. w jakimś stopniu to było dla mnie osobiste i pozwoliło otworzyć oczy na wiele rzeczy, ponieważ ta pozycja skupiona była w głównej mierze na relacji osoby neuroróżnorodnej z osobą neurotypową.

Richard Pink and his wife Roxanne Emery are often stopped in the street by fans of their social media accounts. The standard treatment for ADHD is medication in the form of stimulants -- it doesn't work for everyone, but there is no mention of that at all here, so we don't know if she's medicated or not. I've been reading it with my mom - more to help her understand me, but also to reassure myself I'm not alone with my weird quirks.However, much like the ADHD half of these two authors, I also have done a lot of “tik tok learning” about ADHD- meaning most of these conversations were on my FYP…two years ago. Pay attention to times when you’re rushing or overwhelmed – this is when you’re most likely to be forgetting something. How can you as a partner, parent, or friend better understand your neurodivergent loved one's way of moving through. However, as a prescription for other people makes me cringe and worry about the long-term feasibility. Dirty Laundry by Richard Pink and Roxanne Emery explores the secrets of the laundry industry, tracing its evolution from humble beginnings to a global empire.
