ADHD Acceptance Month – Favourite ADHD Book

ADHD Butterfly Source

Confession time

I haven’t read all the ADHD books. Mainly as I like to read personal accounts that have advice in them, and that genre of books is very small in the ADHD community. There are some books I read and I disliked them a lot – so I won’t mention them.

I know a ton about ADHD but it comes from reading scientific papers, people’s blogs, and personal accounts wherever I can. The main reason I don’t have many recommendations is that I have kinda built my own advice out of the parts of all the other books, and sources where I gained information about ADHD that I have read in my life.

There is one book I recommend (although it does have a UK NHS focus for some stuff):

ADHD: An A to Z by Leanne Maskell

I am waiting patiently for a couple of awesome books that are due out soon by Dani Donovan, Pina (ADHD_Alien), and Jesse J Anderson. I find their comics, threads, and content extremely useful, so I am incredibly glad they have published works of them coming out.

Aside from that I really do recommend this book for cleaning:

Everything You Need To Completely Clean with ADHD by Rene Brooks (I also recommend all the others she has on her site).

Daily blog challenge

October is here usually known as ‘ADHD Awareness Month’ – but IMO we ADHDers deserve more than that – we deserve acceptance. We need to be listened to, we need realistic accommodations, and help. We need to start moving toward ADHD Pride Month. People should be able to feel proud of being ADHDers, because the alternative is shame.

For 31 days I will be writing every day on being an ADHDer using this list of prompts:
