I heard this today whilst listening to the @distractionpodcast and it really resonated with me. Wherever you are in your ADHD journey, always try and hold that in your heart. ADHD isn’t a disability, it’s just a ‘different ability’. Make sure you check out Dr Hallowell’s podcasts, they are so inspiring and exactly what ADHD parents need! They uplift me and make me quite excited about our ADHD future!” Susy Parker
