Jesse J. Anderson
I was diagnosed with ADHD in my mid-thirties and it rocked my world. My own behavior finally made sense. Like many with ADHD, I thought that all my mistakes and failed willpower were moral failings—that I was just lazy, selfish, stupid, or crazy.
But those words never felt right to me, and I finally knew why.
Since my diagnosis, I've made it my mission to help others learn what ADHD really is and how to work with it. I write about ADHD regularly online, I'm writing a book, I have a weekly newsletter Extra Focus, and I also host the ADHD Nerds podcast.
