ADHD and me
In November 2021 I was retrospectively diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). It’s honestly amazing news. I’m one of the estimated 1 million Australians living with ‘a Ferrari brain with bicycle brakes’, as world-renowned psychiatrist and fellow ADHDer Dr Ned Hallowell so aptly puts it. No, ADHD is not only confined to boys. Girls have it too, in undiagnosed droves and I am keen to add my voice to the current social discourse and crush any stigma.

I am available to visit your organisation to speak about my lived experience as a woman with ADHD (supported by references to scholarly literature). To arrange, please email me using the envelope icon at the top of the page. NB: I reside in Australia.
