Hi! My name is Alyssa! I was diagnosed with inattentive ADHD comorbid anxiety in December of 2017.
After my diagnosis I felt a little lost and ventured into the world of Facebook support groups, online blogs, ADHD books and websites. I started my blog, MissleadinglyADHD, to stay on track and note my accomplishments. I hope that by sharing my experience and discoveries, you can relate and learn something! In turn I would love to learn from you and hear your feedback and ways that you manage your ADHD brain! <3
I have never felt like I belonged as much as I do since my diagnosis. This has led me to decide to help my fellow ADHD-ers in any way that I can! I never want someone to feel as lost, stupid and alone as I have felt. This launched me onto my path to become a coach, specializing in ADHD, and training at ADDCA! My goal is to work with my clients to help them to realize that what they are looking for is already a part of who they are. It is just a matter of shining some light onto what they need and bringing it to the surface!
A little about myself:
- I love to keep active; soccer, ringuette, bike rides, hiking, kayaking, elliptical, work out videos and yoga!
- I am obsessed with food! To give an example, 13 year old me went on a family trip and in my “diary” describing the trip included a daily log of what we had for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Very different for a 13 year old! I later went into culinary school…how surprising!
- I have so much love for my friends and family. Don’t know where I would be or what I would do without them! <3
- I believe that self-care is oh-so-very important! I try my best to practice daily mindfulness, meditation, journaling and exercising (including physio!). I also attend a bi-weekly support group for my ADHD.
