Christians With ADHD

I am who I am God made me this way!

Yes I ve been called “special ” all my life,but just now at 50 im coming to terms with it.  In the workforce Im going to let them know officialy,I will be getting tested again..last time I was in school which was many many years ago.


You are correct, God has made us all who we are and he calls us to his will.  We are here today to do something specific as he picked this time and this place for us.  Understanding ADHD allows you to explore how you can use this to do his will.  There is still a great bias against ADHD and the treatment of it.  I pray you find peace in your declaration and success in the treatment.

We make the best out of the life God gives us to live .The way people fit in here on earth is not the same in heaven He knows us He sees our struggles and He is for us! The good thing is when we are weak He is strong! We are tremendously blessed to be able to live for Him

Who else is able to have such compassion for the folks that aren’t quite “right” in the world’s eyes?
Let them see Jesus in you!

I got my official diagnosis at 49.  I am very careful who I tell.  I work in a school and have told 2 out of 4 of my supervising teachers.  I have also told one person above them who is a believer.  One of those teachers is supportive.  The other threw me under the bus at the end of last school year and gave me a lousy review.  Thankfully the believer was in a position to right that wrong and redid my review at the beginning of this school year.  I got an excellent review (with places to improve, getting to class on time and organization…not too surprising). 

So, just a caution, tell people you trust, others if you have to.
