For many people, adjusting to an ADHD diagnosis is very much like grieving the loss of a loved one. We move through phases of shock, denial, anger, bargaining, depression, acceptance and hope, all normal processes that readily apply to learning to live with ADHD.
Listen as Lacy discusses these stages of grief and what it looks like for so many of us with ADHD when we similarly grieve our ADHD brain. She shows how 2 Corinthians 7:11 leaves us with perhaps the most important purpose, that God often will use any grief (including over ADHD) to produce a fervor in us to return to devotion of Him.
For see what earnestness this godly grief has produced in you, but also what eagerness to clear yourselves, what indignation, what fear, what longing, what zeal, what punishment! At every point you have proved yourselves innocent in the matter. 2 Corinthians 7:11, ESV
