Welcome friends to Glitter Brain! If you’ve landed here, it’s likely because you identify as a person with ADHD, you know a person with ADHD, or you suspect you may be neurodiverse. Or, maybe you are just interested in learning more about life with ADHD. In any case, you’re welcome here in the no-judgement zone.
Why glitter? I like to think that glitter can really connect to how ADHD functions. It’s all over the place, it’s messy, it’s impossible to fully contain. And yet it’s fun and creative and adds a little shine to everything it touches. If you want glitter to work for you without the mess, you might need to adjust your approach, but it can be a beautiful addition to any art project.
What’s the Deal with Glitter Brain
I’ll be sharing weekly posts on what ADHD is and how it affects the brain, tips and tricks for organization in life and at work, ideas on how to improve your overall mental health, and STRONG doses of positivity.
Additionally, I’ll be collecting personal stories and anecdotes to publish so you can see that you’re not alone!
There are millions of people around the world sharing your same experiences and we’re here to support each other.
Glitter Brain comes down to a simple idea. It’s place for people of all identities, ages and stages of diagnosis to gather and rejoice in their neurodiversity. ADHD doesn’t have to hold you back. You can learn to harness the power of your innate creativity, keep your life on track, and find a sense of inner peace and harmony.
A Little About the Author
I was diagnosed in 2020, at 32 years old – what many may consider a “late” diagnosis. I’ve always felt different throughout my life. My sense of inadequacy led to some pretty deep feelings of shame and guilt.
I’ve suffered comorbid anxiety, depression and substance abuse. I’ve always sensed that I wasn’t living a life that produced happiness. My diagnosis was a turning point. I decided to accept my differences, get sober, get properly medicated, and focus on making my life work for my brain – not the other way around.
