AN IMPULSIVE builder suffering from ADHD took his own life because it was the only way he could take control, a coroner ruled.
This is a reminder of how important it is to raise ADHD awareness and help remove the stigma of this so often misdiagnosed and misunderstood condition:
This man with ADHD took his life. He was first diagnosed with ADHD as a child. Even then, he never wanted to be seen as "different"...
Without the right support and understanding, individuals with ADHD do not get the help they need to learn how to manage their ADHD challenges and embrace their ADHD gifts. Too often, they don't feel in control of what is happening to them. Their life is not their own. Inevitably this causes crippling overwhelm, anxiety and a hopelessness that can lead to destructive behaviors and even tragedy...
October is ADHD Awareness Month. Please do your part to raise awareness - get ADHD educated and educate your friends, your children's teachers, your family doctor... and most importantly your children with ADHD. Intervene early - it can make a big difference!
Help individuals with ADHD tell a new story about themselves so that they can live happily in integrity with who they really are.
