About this deal

However, to get back to Rich’s point, I’m not surprised that when we meet people like me, they very often begin to cry. I thought that since I was medicated that it fixed ALL my ADHD symptoms and that whatever it didn’t fix was just because I was a lazy human or careless. I’m not saying either of us is the next Ricky Gervais (although if you saw the pyjama-clad dance moves she pulls before bed, you might start to believe it), but on the whole we create light-hearted moments from our life and share them on the internet. It will transform your self-hatred into self-acceptance, with simple tips that actually work for your brain.

These days, Rox still loses things, but has learned to change the way she talks to herself about it, and has picked up a few tricks to make this symptom more manageable. The neurodivergent people I know are really connected to themselves and those around them, so when one of them starts crying, I genuinely wonder where I’ve gone wrong. Like Roxanne, living up until now with undiagnosed ADHD, created a lot of inner turmoil and self-doubt. This book; in high contrast with others written by doctors; is full with real experiences, authentic anecdotes and real-life situations that the writter has gone through in her journey as someone living with ADHD. An empowering and witty guide to banishing shame and living your fullest life with ADHD—plus tips for loved ones on helping them navigate this world, too—from viral duo ADHD_Love.

To see those very vulnerable stories resonate with so many people has been incredibly heart-warming. First, let me remind you to go take the washing out of the dryer, and second, I’ll pick up where Rich left off and explain why people we meet start crying. Not least of these are the supplies and materials for “House of Resin,” a company that she spent three weeks building after seeing someone making a beautiful wooden table inlaid with a waterfall made of blue resin. Throughout the pages of "Dirty Why Adults with ADHD are so Ashamed and What We Can Do to Help," Pink and Emery expertly navigate the complex emotional landscape that individuals with ADHD often face. Also I’d never before considered the pretty basic fact that your beloved ADHDer is not trying to deliberately wind you up by their behaviours such as losing things or being late – it’s just that their brain is wired differently.

Being someone who’s struggled with many of the same issues throughout my life, I only wish that this book had been published sooner! Publishing director Marianne Tatepo acquired world all-language rights in all formats from Oscar Janson-Smith at Gleam Futures in a “significant” two-book deal made in a 48-hour pre-empt. If you are lucky enough to have a spouse, family member, or friend who can support you then this book may be a good starting point for them to understand some of the ADHD struggles that many people face and how to support them.The 103 third parties who use cookies on this service do so for their purposes of displaying and measuring personalized ads, generating audience insights, and developing and improving products. Many members of the trade said they had noticed an increase in the number of originally self-published works acquired by traditional houses recently thanks to an increase in “discoverability” on the direct-to-consumer platform. We feel incredibly grateful to take the next step with this book and hope it continues to help those with ADHD and those lucky enough to love them.
