Joy Searcher.

Welcome to my blog!

My current identity is determined by my recent ADHD diagnosis and being their parent.

If I were to write a job application based on my experiences raising my neurodivergent offspring who each have seperate diagnosis of Autism, ADHD and Dyslexia I'd be hired for any advertised position almost immediately.

I understand the challenges that come with these conditions. I have gained a wealth of knowledge and skills some quite naturally and others painfully slow.

I live, eat, sleep and breathe neurodiversity daily.

I've experienced difficulty with concentrating, I lose focus easily, I can be impulsive, hyperactive, anxious and overwhelmed all in one go. Soon after an 'episode' I'll sit with low self-esteem and question my worth. With time I'll start questioning my relationships, jobs interests, hobbies and just about anything and everything.

It's exhausting. Over time these persistent behaviours have caused me to lose the joy in my life.

That's why in 2023, I've made it my mission to find joy in life. This blog is my space to share my experiences, reflect, and hopefully grow. I have many stories worth sharing that are full of teaching moments. I hope that by sharing my experiences, I can help others who may be going through similar challenges.

I want to emphasize that my blog won't be written in any particular order since I struggle with organization. When something important happens, triggers me or presents a teaching moment, I will write it here to share. Everything I share will be based on my personal experiences, and I hope that by sharing both my failures and successes, I can find the joy that I crave.

I'd like to also take this moment to let you know that I will be writing this blog anonymously. While I will be sharing my personal experiences, I also want to respect the privacy of other adult entities who wish to keep their diagnoses and experiences cofidential. I believe that everyone has the right to own their own story, and I will be honoring that in my writing.

I welcome you to join me on this journey.

There is no right or wrong, just the hope that we can all find deep, meaningful, invigorating, joyful joy.

Feel free to share about your experiences as an Autism mum, the mid 40's diagnosis or anything you wish.

My hope is to build a community; a non-judgemental safe space to learn, grow, support, and equip. My hope is that you will join me.
