Living with ADHD isn't easy, and finding a community and people who understand can be hard too. These content creators help, whether it's by talking about their experience with ADHD or creating ADHD-friendly (read: easy to stay focused on) content.
Many times, I've found myself a little too hyper-focused on watching TikToks, only to successfully be slowed down by one of user @katesearly's live study sessions, which is how I learned about body doubling. Kate plays calming music, creates a peaceful environment, and answers questions about her study setup and ADHD tips. She also has tours of her apartment that showcase ADHD-friendly organization tips and knick-knacks, which I've found helpful, as well as many others, according to the comment sections on her videos. As a pediatric nurse practitioner and med student, she also offers medical insights into ADHD and presents them in an easy-to-understand way.
Comedian Youngmi Mayer has a very ADHD-friendly TikTok page, including day-in-the-life videos about being a single mom living with ADHD, cooking with ADHD, going out to eat with other ADHD friends, and more. Youngmi's somewhat scattered nature in her TikToks, including fun shopping ones, are easy to keep focus on since they jump around from product to product and document all the distractions.
Jay was diagnosed with ADHD pretty late in life and uses his TikTok to document his adjustment to living with an ADHD diagnosis, including understanding his brain better, being kinder to himself, and finding the right meds for him, which anyone who has been treated for ADHD knows can be a long struggle. His content is inspiring, real, and a reminder to be gentle with ourselves.
