This could have been a terrible moment… but it wasn’t! It was the best! @cakeandmadness is an #ownvoices reader who share’s Peta’s diagnoses/neurodivergence. I’m so relieved she rated Peta Lyre FIVE STARS!!!
I cried happy tears when I finished reading – it was so good and so validating to feel SEEN; to see someone like me written BY someone like me.

This article, “Burnout, Connection, Hope” by Dr Nancy Doyle looks at ADHD and what to do when it all gets too much. Self care is important, but what IS self care? And what does it look like when someone with ADHD isn’t coping?
The few people that ‘got me’ in this period were noticing what I was saying, not the energy with which I was saying it. “How are you, Nance?” “Ridiculously busy, totally in need of some rest [add smile which confuses]”.
When do you need to pull out all the stops and seek help from the professionals? Worth a read.
