My name is Jasmine - I'm glad you made it here! 😃I was diagnosed with ADHD at the start of 2022 (just before my GCSEs).
I consider ADHD to be a key part of my life, as it makes me who I am today.
Since my diagnosis, I have spent a lot of time researching, compiling notes and trying to understand more about this disorder.Unfortunately, there are many misconceptions about ADHD.
I want to help change that.
I made this carrd with the aim of teaching others about ADHD and reducing the stigma around it, how to live and cope with ADHD and how to support others that have it.
