As you might deduce from the title, I want to briefly discuss some of the common traits associated with ADHD. I was diagnosed with ADHD just over two months ago, and I hope that by the information below, I can help others who may be in a similar situation seek help sooner. This is definitely not medical advice but if anything here strikes a chord, please go and chat to your doctor.

Last week I attended the X World conference in Melbourne, where I gave a 5-minute Lightning Talk with Damian Cavanagh. In this post, I’ll share the key points we covered, along with some resources that helped me to better understand ADHD and to seek out an official diagnosis.
