ADHD & Stimming

Do you stim 👀 ?

Like many, for a long time, I thought only autistic people were stimming 🤔

But since my ADHD diagnosis, I’ve learned that it’s also common for people with ADHD to stim 😊 !

Everyone can stim! For example, it's pretty common to click your pen when you are taking an exam 😬🖊

But for neurodiverse people, stimming can be more intense and frequent 😌

I originally posted this in December, but as I get many questions about this topic, I thought it would be nice to post it again 💕
