WHY ADHD AWARENESS?
Do you know everything there is to know about ADHD? I’m guessing the answer is ‘no’. That’s okay because my answer is ‘no’ as well. How can anyone know everything there is about ADHD when it seems to be this mysterious ‘condition’, ‘behavior’, ‘lifestyle’, or ‘that’s just how they are’ disorder? And what they do know, is it accurate? There’s just so much misleading information at everyone’s fingertips, no wonder people are confused or uninformed.
This is why we need ADHD Awareness. So truth, facts, science, and personal experiences of having ADHD can be made available. The goal of ADHD Awareness is to help remove the stigmas associated with ADHD and provide information that will inspire people to want to know more. As we raise awareness, I believe more people will want to educate themselves on ADHD.
I realized last year that I needed to know more about ADHD. How could I have lived my whole life with ADHD and still be ignorant about it? I didn’t take my diagnosis seriously. I didn’t know what I didn’t know. Once I did take it seriously, I wanted to learn more. Then I wanted to learn everything I could regarding ADHD. What I realized is that as I’m learning about ADHD, I’m developing more self-awareness. And as I’m becoming more self-aware, I’m wanting to bring more awareness about ADHD to others. Imagine that!
As I think about my own need to know more about this mysterious diagnosis, I realized that other people probably want to know more too. And these people may or may not be diagnosed with ADHD.
It’s always good to recognize and celebrate how far we’ve come with ADHD education but knowing that many children and adults will continue to struggle if we don’t raise awareness, is a powerful motivator to increase awareness.
Why ADHD Awareness?
There’s so much to learn about ADHD, and because what you learn probably matters to someone you love! In my future “Karen’s Noggin’ 🧠 Nuggets”, I plan to share information to increase your awareness of ADHD!
