Most insomniacs spend the early hours shopping online or endlessly scrolling social media – but entrepreneurial junkie Priya Lakhani used her sleepless nights to come up with business plans.
“There were times where I used to sleep three to four hours a night. Some doctors offered to help but I always refused because this is when I am at my best. Insomnia is quite common for people with ADHD – but I just become hyper-focused and I can be obsessive to the point that I want to learn everything about something. I am not saying it’s for everyone and some people do really need support, but for me ADHD is like a superpower.”
This might be an unpopular opinion but, in her own words, Lakhani “always found it very difficult to go through traditional routes”.
