Hey! I'm Sydni

About Me:

I'm a 28-year-old mom, wife, ADHDer, and Biology grad student. (I'm almost done with my Master's degree in Genetics and Microbiology!) Grad school introduced me to two of my passions in life: teaching and research. 

I was diagnosed with Combined-Type ADHD ("ADHD-C") when I was 24 in 2018. Upon that diagnosis, I felt a sense of relief - almost like this huge weight was being lifted. I finally understood why I was the way that I was. As you may have guessed, I have spent a lot of my free time learning everything I can about ADHD: research articles, podcasts, YouTube videos, ADHD Facebook groups, Reddit, ADDitude magazine, etc. I gathered all of the information I could about the genetics and neurobiology of ADHD, symptoms and behaviors, gender differences, etc.

Unfortunately, I noticed an issue as I was doing all of my research: much of the information out there is inconsistent, outdated, or just completely incorrect. This is probably because of the way the information is presented. As a scientist, I'm aware of how inaccessible some of the language can be in research articles; and as a human, I'm also aware of the fact that literally anybody can put information on the internet - correctly interpreted or not.

That's around the time when my Teacher urges took over: I wanted to find a way to communicate everything I've learned (and continue to learn) about ADHD in a way that anyone could understand. I wanted to teach the general public about ADHD, and I especially wanted to show those in the ADHD Community that they are not alone.

And so, What in the ADHD? was born.
