I love this article about caffeine and ADHD. It is something for all of us to think about.
7 Things I Learned About Caffeine and Kids With ADHD
When I was in high school, drinking coffee made me feel sophisticated and—I thought—helped me concentrate and stay awake. I have ADHD, but back then I was undiagnosed and not medicated. I really struggled with self-regulation.
I liked coffee and how the caffeine in it made me feel so sharp and alert. So I drank as much as I wanted to whenever I felt like it—without considering how the caffeine was physically affecting me. I’d have a latte at 4pm and then lie awake at 4am wondering why I couldn’t sleep.
