Female stereotypes

I was thinking about how ADHD traits, can cause stress where they interfere with the ability to meet others expectations of you. I ask this as a late diagnostic case. Questions I have are:
How much support did you get before you knew?
If any how much support do you get now?
Do people/loved ones treat you differently?

Hi Sistah Afroe

Thanks for starting this group!

I agree that it's ridiculous that women are supposed to know things simply because they are women. We only know what we are taught and from what we experience or read about.

I hope our readers with ADHD join this group and get and give the support women need.

My mother likes to say things 'like your a girl you should know that', and I always think.....why should I know this did you tell me?'

This is a group for women living with ADHD. Whether diagnosed early or later in life it is important for us to speak about our experience with ADHD, good or bad. This group is to share advice, anecdotes etc. For too long we have been judged by male presentations of ADHD, well we need to make a point that in order to support women better, all need understand what we need for that support to be successful. It starts with communication and trust. I hope some may find this group a place to start and continue. (Savvy ind├ępendant sisters talking about Hyperkinesis)
