Discovering you have ADHD late in life is a mother f*cker.

At the age of 48, my world was turned completely upside down when I received the life changing diagnosis. If you're in the same boat, and you're looking for connection or resources, you've come to the right place.

Late to My Own Party offers personal reflections on life with ADHD, resources and information you might find helpful, and a community of people just like YOU who are here to support you in your ADHD journey. Or, maybe you've got a friend, family member, colleague, or loved one with ADHD and you just want to understand them better. I appreciate and welcome you here, too.

All content on Late to My Own Party will always be free, and you'll always have the ability to comment and interact with members of the community as a free subscriber. If this work has value to you, and you want to support the publication, I invite you to become a paid subscriber for $5/month or $50/year. Your generous support allows me to continue offering this content for free.

I'm so glad you've found your way to the party. You're always welcome here.

If you have a friend who might enjoy Late to My Own Party, I'd appreciate you sharing it with them!
