Pro tip: If you want to stop being friends with an autistic ADHDer, you probably need to tell them straight out. Because all this "fading away into the woodwork" doesn't work with people who will often not speak to their friends in years without any of the friendship feelings changing. Not seeing someone doesn't change that we think of them as our friends. So not being in touch with us, doesn't communicate "I don't want to be friends anymore". You're going to have to say it. And don't worry, we'll respect your wishes. We just need to know to understand. #adhd #audhd #actuallyAutistic

ADHD is not “can’t sit still disorder” ADHD is “posting in 10 group chats, subreddits and other posting platforms, never using the search function to see incidents of the same question being raised, asking for tips on how to do complex things like feed yourself and do one task. Upon discovering that you just sort of have to do the thing, you close all the tabs. You ignore your previous attempts to find an answer and do the same post a week later in the hopes that someone has come up with the perfectly suited to you way to do one task. You feel shame and embarrassment and anger and often nothing at all, whilst neurotypical people tell you that it’s easy to do one task you just have to want to do it. You want to do a lot of things but even the things that give you joy are insurmountable” disorder :)

Okay, #ADHD folks - what symptom suddenly makes sense, now that you understand ADHD better? I'm not talking about general stuff, like difficulty concentrating, I'm talking about specific phenomena, like having trouble following a conversation at a party. I always thought I had this problem because my ears are about a foot higher than the people speaking, but now I'm starting to think that the real difficulty is that my brain has trouble turning the volume down on all the other talking in the room. (I will occasionally repost this, along with whatever new symptom I've thought up... Apologies for the repetition) #ItAllMakesSenseNow

One of my favorite tools in my productivity toolbox for getting started on things I don’t particularly feel like doing is the inverse pomodoro. It’s basically what it sounds like: a timed work/break cycle, but the work and break times are reversed from a normal pomodoro. I usually set a 5 minute timer, do some work, and then do something relaxing or fun for 15 minutes. I usually find that after doing that once or twice, it’s pretty easy to flip to normal pomodoros.

Does anyone have any resources for managing neurodiverse people at work? I have an autistic+ADHD pal who needs support and adjustments made in how they work (e.g. better ways of tracking hours, trouble with being interrupted during a task, looming existential dread at unplanned meetings and most of all difficulty articulating needs) and it would be great to send them something they can show their manager.

My "pumped" Spotify playlist is my alarm and my "trick my ADHD brain into doing the thing" 😁 I find a few of the artists like Maduk and Fox Stevenson coming on usually do the trick

I've not been around much because ✨Life Chaos™️✨, but yesterday the publication of an article and documentary by the BBC about a "journalist" faking ADHD to get a diagnosis has enraged me. I paid to go through a private diagnosis because my undiagnosed and untreated ADHD was destroying my life. The NHS kept rebuffing me and even if I did get referred, it would have taken years because of the chronic underfunding the NHS has received since 2010. #ADHD #BBC #Panorama

Hey - it’s #ADHDObsessionWednesday! I want to hear from my #adhd peeps: what’s your current obsession or passion? I’m still obsessed with #Mastodon, the #Fediverse, and the possibility of a better internet. So I added a bunch of #IndieWeb features to my new site. (I was gonna do this on Monday but… I got distracted & forgot 😆) https://whatwasidoingagain.com/adhd-asides/adhdobsessionwednesday/
