One of the best things we can do for helping overcome chronic ADHD paralysis is getting a diagnosis. A diagnosis shifted my perception of the difficulty I had taking action, from one of self criticism and self loathing, to accepting that there is a good reason for my struggle. A reason based on the neurobiology of my brain.
A diagnosis is one of the first critical steps we can take to changing the narrative about who we are.
When we realise we're not dealing with a character defect and struggling to push against our paralysis (or rut), we flip the switch on ourselves and move towards seeing what we can change in order to thrive.
