I did it!
I took my late 30s ADHD self to university to get myself an English degree.
I figured I'd see how I got on in the first year, fully expecting to bail at that point because ADHD and me never completing things ever.
Well, that was four years ago.
My ADHD arse kinda enjoyed it. I loved learning. I loved my friends. I grew (both wider, and intellectually). You know what happened?
I GOT A FIRST!
I officially now have my BA English with First Class Honours.
Don't let anyone tell you it is too late. Don't let anyone tell you that your ADHD means you can't do it.
Not gonna lie. It wasn't easy juggling real life, kids, and uni, but I made it through and fcking won.
Anyway. I know that a few people said that they wanted to read the dissertation because it was ADHD in Women focused, so it is now uploaded, and can be read by clicking on the little linky right below.
Any authors or tv show makers out there, we need some hardcore representation please!
