Anxiety is essentially a result of your brain's interpretation of something as a threat in relation to your ability to cope. Sometimes we see something as a bigger threat than what it is, making our ability to cope seem inadequate. Sometimes we have such low confidence in our ability to cope that EVERYTHING feels like a threat. Sometimes it's both. Trauma has a way of hijacking our threat assessment system and leaves us living in fear/dread 24/7.
ADHD is impairment of executive function. It really should be called Executive Function Disorder. Executive Function is like having a little CEO in your brain running things, delegating, planning, executing tasks/projections, keeping track of things, sustaining focus, making decisions, and keeping it all organized and productive. When you have ADHD, your little CEO is basically sleeping on the job. Good news: there are ways to improve this. I can help.
