    Beautifully said Chris. After a lifetime of wondering why I felt so different and why I couldn’t do math or figure things out or understand people in general, I was diagnosed at age 54 with ADD, Inattentive Type, Anxiety and Depression. Instead of a feeling of the Ah Ha moment, I felt nothing but shame. I grieved because I had to face that fact that I could never fix myself (Always thought I could, with the right to-do list or the right planner) It definitely is a journey, but once you get the help, by first learning to ask for help, the path becomes clearer. With the help of a supportive partner, a great therapist and helpful drugs my own path is now easier to navigate and shame doesn’t haunt my steps. Thank you for sharing your story. -Holly

    This is my go-to video on good days. Helps with keeping up motivation that things can get better, but also an acceptance of how hard it can be sometimes.
