Scatter Brain (Hardback)Shaparak Khorsandi (author)
Khorsandi looks back on her chaotic life through the retrospective lens of her recent ADHD diagnosis in this witty, poignant and invaluable mix of memoir and self-help manual.
Undiagnosed Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder made my life a frustrating, maddening rollercoaster. I had very little focus except when I was hyper-focusing (and then it would always be on the wrong things), I made the same mistakes over and over again, regularly burning myself out until I was sobbing. When I finally was diagnosed in my 40s it felt like the lights had been turned on after a lifetime in the dark.
Join much-loved comedian Shaparak Khorsandi as she looks back on her life through the lens of ADHD and finally makes sense of the chaos. From discovering the joys of shoplifting through to finally understanding her attraction to toxic men, Scatter Brain will have you laughing (and crying) as you find out what it's really like to live a life out of control. Whether you suspect you might have ADHD or you're here to enjoy the ride, let Shaparak take you on her hilarious journey of self-discovery where you just might learn something useful about yourself too!
