⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
Solange isn't the only person to have this theory about ADHD. For a long time, ADHD wasn't clinically recognized as a real disability, so it's no surprise that she was skeptical about her initial diagnosis. She states that people would often think she was on drugs due to her "sporadic speech" and "always being full of energy." She also states that she sees the symptoms for ADHD in Hollywood all the time: "loss of memory, starting something and not finishing it..." Again, it's really no surprise that her ADHD went undetected for so long. ⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣
As we know, the symptoms of ADHD for women often go unnoticed, leading to people not feeling the need to go to a professional for a diagnosis. Also, some people just don't believe in talking to medical professionals about mental illness/disabilities. ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
I commend Solange for getting a second opinion and embracing her ADHD. She is a creative and talented individual and her superpower is another part of what makes her who she is. ⁣⁣⁣⁣

I am honored to write a piece about a condition that I live with & help others manage that has made the headline of a highly respected magazine. Thank you, @additudemag 🙏

I was diagnosed with ADHD at age 31, two months before graduating from my child psychiatry fellowship. I had been in school for TWENTY-SEVEN YEARS, and no one suspected that I had ADHD. When I failed my medical school boards FIVE times, not even a university psychologist had any clinical suspicions for ADHD. I even completed neuropsychological testing and was given two diagnoses: Performance Anxiety (exams) & an above-average IQ. But not ADHD because no one saw the symptoms in me yet, I continued to struggle.

And to think about the children at a more significant disadvantage makes my stomach cringe because, as it's scientifically proven, getting a "good" education does matter...It helps establish the trajectory for someone's LIFE; It allows individuals to live with more options; It creates confidence and delivers dreams to those who thrive to "be somebody."

So when ADHD is missed in kids like me or in kids who don't have the systemic support or cultural awareness from others, it can be a devastating and dangerous risk of not living the life they deserve.

My article provides perspective on how ADHD is viewed, treated, and lived among the minority community. When I looked for help, I didn't see myself. No Black woman I knew had ADHD, so I did my work and became that Black woman for myself until I met others with ADHD who shared similar experiences and gave me hope that I was not alone.

Today I'm an advocate for other Black and Brown children and adults. Many are treated like their ADHD struggles are "natural for them" some are traumatized for unknowingly living with the condition that causes poor behaviors and decisions; and 60% still reside in an adult prison because of multi-systemic failures, which for many, began when they were children.

ADHD continues to be a privileged diagnosis that every person with symptoms may not be privy to receive help for. Let's break this systemic cycle, address the bias & confront the stigma so people of color can receive treatment and thrive.

Why ADHD Is Different for People of Color 07/07/2021

Why ADHD Is Different for People of Color

I am honored to write a piece about a condition that I live with & help others manage that has made the headline of a highly respected magazine. Thank you, @additudemag 🙏

I was diagnosed with ADHD at age 31, two months before graduating from my child psychiatry fellowship. I had been in school for TWENTY-SEVEN YEARS, and no one suspected that I had ADHD. When I failed my medical school boards FIVE times, not even a university psychologist had any clinical suspicions for ADHD. I even completed neuropsychological testing and was given two diagnoses: Performance Anxiety (exams) & an above-average IQ. But not ADHD because no one saw the symptoms in me yet, I continued to struggle.

And to think about the children at a more significant disadvantage makes my stomach cringe because, as it's scientifically proven, getting a "good" education does matter...It helps establish the trajectory for someone's LIFE; It allows individuals to live with more options; It creates confidence and delivers dreams to those who thrive to "be somebody."

So when ADHD is missed in kids like me or in kids who don't have the systemic support or cultural awareness from others, it can be a devastating and dangerous risk of not living the life they deserve.

My article provides perspective on how ADHD is viewed, treated, and lived among the minority community. When I looked for help, I didn't see myself. No Black woman I knew had ADHD, so I did my work and became that Black woman for myself until I met others with ADHD who shared similar experiences and gave me hope that I was not alone.

Today I'm an advocate for other Black and Brown children and adults. Many are treated like their ADHD struggles are "natural for them" some are traumatized for unknowingly living with the condition that causes poor behaviors and decisions; and 60% still reside in an adult prison because of multi-systemic failures, which for many, began when they were children.

ADHD continues to be a privileged diagnosis that every person with symptoms may not be privy to receive help for. Let's break this systemic cycle, address the bias & confront the stigma so people of color can receive treatment and thrive.

Why ADHD Is Different for People of Color “Raising awareness of the unique challenges facing people of color with ADHD is one small but important step in addressing this systemic issue. For many individuals, knowing that ADHD could be the reason behind their struggles can put them on a path to seek help and improve their outcomes.”
