Since the publication of my story in 2022, a lot has changed. In early 2024, I was diagnosed with Inattentive ADHD. I am now learning more about this condition and how to manage it, both for myself and to help others. Interestingly, 30% of people with dyslexia also have Inattentive ADHD. People with Inattentive ADHD often have issues with processing information and a dysfunctional dopamine system. Dopamine is a neurotransmitter that plays a crucial role in motivation, pleasure, and attention. A balanced dopamine system is essential for focus and emotional regulation. Part of this neurological issue is that staying focused on difficult or even boring tasks can be challenging due to a dysfunctional dopamine system. That's why creativity and design are so stimulating for me; I can hyper-focus and have a fast-paced ideation mind when it interests me.
It isn't all doom and gloom, and if you are surrounded by empathetic and patient people, you can get through daily challenges. To those who have this same condition, you are not alone, and new research and support are always out there.  Other takeaways are that structured routines and planning are beneficial. Taking lots of breaks from your phone or trying to avoid it altogether can also be beneficial, I am sure that most people are more productive on a computer compared to a tiny screen. Everyone needs to unwind, which I find calming Films, photography, visiting art galleries, listening to music, and stand-up comedy, having time out in nature away from technology, and snorkelling are great ways for anyone to unwind a busy mind. I am currently on a holistic journey to learn how to maintain my dopamine levels naturally. So far, mindfulness, a supportive family and team, yoga, sleep health, a range of vitamins that have been suggested by research, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) are also helpful and healthy food choices have been key.

Every year we host the OFFCUTS Show, which as the name suggests is a show created from the offcut canvas and stretcher bars from the previous year. These mini canvases are distributed to local artists with proceeds from the sale of works being donated to charity. The show has different themes, it was ' Rip Off' and I used artists' movie poster attack of the 50ft women for inspiration to translate it to ' Attack on the First Fleet', my own hertigae is from Scotland and Wales
