  2. I first thought I had bipolar, but it turns out that I had ADHD when I went to a doctor about it.

  3. All this information is true for me as well. Worst part is that I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes when I was a 6 years old kid. This caused inattentive ADHD. ADHD has made a lot challenging for me to regulate diabetes. I recently completed my PhD in life science. With ADHD and diabetes, I was so damn challenging. Although, hyper-excitement helped a lot in completing various projects.

  4. I didnt know "what was wrong with me" until i watched your video and then you told me, point by point, about myself. All, and I mean all my traits, including the sensitivity to sound and the strange route planning quirk…

  5. Thank You so much for your video!! I have Adhd and I can totally relate. How many days of the week do you take medication? Do you take breaks?

  6. My worst fidget is skin picking, I’m like constantly picking the skin off my fingers without even noticing my thumbs always look like a dogs been chewing on them. When Inwas learning to drive I was having trouble controlling the vehicle and someone had to tell me it was because instead of holding onto the wheel properly I was just picking at my skin without even realizing, bandaids don’t even help cause I’ll just pick at the bandaids until they come off too. Totally relate to your nail biting thing, like zero control over it

  7. i can see that you cant maintain eyes contacts for longer than 5 seconds. man i have the same problem

  8. If I deviate from routine, I will be lost, but to venture out, I send myself pre-scheduled texts as reminders in the future. It's the only thing that I know I can do easily and fast.

    The downside is if I break my phone, I forget those pre-scheduled notes. 🤣

  9. My man, thank you so much! This made me and especially my partner understand me so much better.

    One remark though: you forgot to add the channels you referred to in the outro 😉

  10. Oh man… so I'm here trying to focus on some freelance work and watching/listening to this video at the same time to help me stay on track. It works most of the time, but every now and then there are moments like this one where I have to stop and write a comment because I relate to these things you said SO much!
    The impulsive spending and eating, not being able to focus even on things I want to do, avoiding video games that have no ending and aren't too replayable, and THE DAMN HOBBIES.

    I'm taking medication and also trying to practice some CBT skills to help with a lot of the struggles, so thankfully I was able to stop myself from buying a huge weaving loom I saw at a thrift store the other day. I have never really been into these sorts of crafts before (weaving, knitting, etc) but for some reason I looked at that thing and got so freaking excited about making tapestries, out of nowhere. A couple of weeks later I was already thinking about how great it was that I didn't buy it because I knew it'd be just gathering dust in the garage by then (along with the stuff from my other former "hobbies" that I couldn't hold back from buying).

    And last week, early morning at work, I suddenly had this AMAZING SHINY IDEA for a project that I felt like starting, and it was crazy how hard it was to focus on work. It's like a part of my brain kept telling me over and over "if you don't do this right now, you're going to forget about it" and there was an insane sense of urgency. It got unbearable so I had to stop and write the ideas down and also send voice messages about it to my sister (bless her) so that I could sort of get them out of my head just enough to actually bring my focus back to work. And some people think ADHD is just an excuse for being lazy or irresponsible – these people have no idea how hard things can be.

    Whew, okay. Back to work now. Great video btw!

  11. I always used to feel so bad that I cannot for the life of me sit down with nothing. Like I cannot just sit quietly. I needed a youtube video in tehbackground or some music or something. I used to go mad over why cam't I do it. But after watching you say teh same things. I feel normal agai. Thanks @bryanjenks

  12. Bro… we’re twins and I made it through bc rn I’m hyper focused on learning about ADHD and how to help my daughter. I didn’t realize that all of these things I do could be related the ADHD. I actually didn’t think I had any ADHD symptoms at all until I listened to this in my headphones while working lol. I thought it was autism which, as an adult, has no benefit to seek diagnosis other than an explanation for oneself, which I don’t care to have. Could be neither, one or maybe some of both. Interesting.

  13. Best video ever!! Every minute describes me except that I'm a chef not IT person 👍😊thanx Sooo Much for sharing.

  14. Very true, good adhd content! I'm the same have a place for everything, especially important stuff or guaranteed loss. Essential for everything to be in its spot. I travel quite a bit too, so have specific spots in my bags and places in hotel rooms where I keep things. Special spots for everything haha, and little routines I used to cope.

  15. Been with my dime of a girl for 15 years this August…in the beginning, my (officially diagnosed at age 8) adhd was what gave me the competitive advantage far as being a more interesting person to her. And there were times she'd say I was a jerk for behaving in a way that, on the surface, seemed insensitive, but I knew more than I could articulate how that simply wasn't the case. It was more "treat others the way you want to be treated" and because of my desire for results now, Now, NOW! I don't get offended when searching for redundancies to smooth over with efficiencies (actively seeking where could do better = humility)…..

    Eventually, I was able to articulate these insights and long-story short, when both our hearts intent was made clear with the power of the spoken word, setting it in concrete that there was never a malicious "oh he's just a jerk" or "god she's a bitch" fog over anything, and shared spatial awareness became what we both share a responsibly to tend to, it's like our pet in the house that s worth the effort of care to receive the tenfold benefits of a loving relationship in return 😉

    (only works if both parties equally desire a harmonious/peaceful/civil path forward more than they go being seen as "right" about any one topic……and it needs to be discussed at that literal level of ABC's~123's……or else you're both assuming you have the same first principles instead of realizing it'd be weird if you achieved that without earning it…….puppy love was just the taste of what could be there more often if you both trim the fat)

    *I'm open to shooting the shyt with anyone that sees the value in speaking their thoughts out loud and would dig a facetime google duo session about where you're at with any adhd quarks….I've grown to see it simply as impulse control, which my adhd is actually bored with, because it sounds basic, so it sovled itself by being bored with itself in a way, lol…it's basically being born into a racecar that's needs to be detuned (or have slower gears installed while still keeping the straight-cut gears) in a sense in order to achieve homologation to operate on public roads…
    haven't taken medication since 13years old, I was expelled from middle school becuase I was such a severe case, and when it was time for me to retrun to public school, I made a huge stink about how much I hated the drugs, and they finally caved, and I've been off ever since….in 37 now.

  16. I’m sure you drove through my counties -Humboldt and Del Norte – a few times. Our roads are not always great, but they are awesome.

  17. It’s really hard to describe to other people how horrible it feels when you want to do something and cannot.

  18. This video was me almost 100%. Thank you for helping so many of us realize we're not alone in this struggle.

  19. Quick question… do you have a mind's eye? As in, can you visualize through images while you're awake and/or dream in images at night? Totally out of left field… I'm just curious.

    Thanks so much for your 2 videos on ADHD… Everything you shared resonated with me and has helped me as I'm coming to terms with this. I've always been so ashamed of my ways of doing and being. Hearing you discuss it all has made me see the connections between my actions/emotions and ADHD.

    I'm not a high-income earner and am using New Zealand currency (poor end of the exchange conversion) but want to give a little something to thank you for this content, the depth of your sharing and the organization of your videos… so very much appreciated!

  20. For your fingernails might I suggest picking up some other chewing stims to make another chewing habit? I used to chew off my finger nails also but i didn’t make it my main oral stim because I used to also chew on soft plastic bottle caps and that kind of took over. I still chew on soft plastic bottle caps. Chewing stims are kinda tough in general my teeth have some damage and wear from all of it over the years.

  21. I watched your video about getting back on medication recently and I identify with everything you have said to a shocking degree. I am also a programmer but not in industry yet just about to graduate school. I also recently bought noise canceling headphones and I literally always have them with me. Recently I made the decision to get back on meds but I haven’t had medical insurance for awhile I’m not exactly certain how the process goes anymore but wish me luck!

  22. Great Video! I have struggled with ADHD since I was a kid. I was diagnosed when I was 16 and of course I relate to just about eveything you said in this vid. Watched to the end. Keep up the great work!

  23. I just watch 2 video from you and….. oh boy! Its like looking into a mirror.
    Taking the same med and everyting. Im glad that im not alone dealing with this. I am a dopamine addict. and its pretty difficult even with med.

  24. For driving, I suggest books on tape. Audible. A compelling mystery or drama. Had a friend who commuted on weekends to home 5 hours away and he used books on tape.

  25. All proper apologies need to include a statement about how you will not do the thing that caused the issue in the first place, so well done for coming to that instinctively Bryan.

  26. This guy was funny, I stuffer from unmedicaid adhd, and just so many moments of "I know 100% what you mean"
