In this fast-paced world of devices, online living and being bombarded with constant messages, it can become very overwhelming...but imagine living in a constant state of noise. On this episode of Authentic Living with Roxanne, we welcome Jeanette Graham who will share her journey of being diagnosed with ADHD as an adult and the skills that help her cope at home and at work.
Jeanette’s life never made sense, she always felt like she never quite fit in and was just different. When Jeanette was diagnosed with ADHD in the spring of 2017 everything changed. Suddenly her whole life started to make sense. The more Jeanette learned about ADHD the more she started to learn about herself. She was different and realized she didn’t fit in but that was ok.
