In this edition, from Katy...
Over the recent two months, my life has witnessed a whirlwind of change, making it quite a challenge to keep pace. One of the most monumental shifts was our relocation to a new home, an endeavour that was as demanding as it was transformative.
Often cited as one of life's most stressful experiences, my encounter with moving has resoundingly affirmed this belief. This event triggered an extensive de-cluttering phase, for which I owe gratitude to the local Facebook giveaway groups and St. Luke's on Wheelock Street for their willingness to accept children's toys.
The astonishing quantity of items we had gathered over the years was a revelation. The process involved countless trips to the waste disposal site, renting a skip, and despite this, we still managed to fill the loft of our new home. Although we are progressively settling in, the process is ongoing and evolving.
Another significant development was receiving a diagnosis of ADHD in December. At the age of 46, realising that I have Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, which often presents differently in women, was enlightening.
Looking back on a lifetime of feeling persistently overwhelmed, this diagnosis brings a sense of understanding that I previously lacked. Although I wish this realization had come earlier, to foster a better comprehension of myself, the insight I now possess is liberating.
My journey of learning about ADHD is in its infancy, and with every piece of information I uncover, I find more aspects that resonate with my experiences. This diagnosis has opened a new chapter in my life, filled with self-awareness and potential.
As I navigate this path of discovery and adaptation, my outlook towards the future is brimming with positivity and a new-found appreciation of my unique strengths and capabilities. I took forward to the discoveries the next few months bring and I hope you have a year of new beginnings too.
