Hitting their mid-thirties and still uncertain about relationships, sex, and love, CJ DeBarra launched into a quest for understanding…. find out more at this free book launch.
Growing up in West Cork, Ireland, CJ knew they were ADHD, but its implications remained
mysterious. To write this book, they drew on academic research, medical studies, the
experience of other queer ADHD individuals, and their background as an ADHD journalist.
CJ explored the raw realities of heartbreak, love, and sexuality, and delved into the
complexities of desire, the impact of distractions during intimacy, the role of dopamine, and the allure of unconventional sexual experiences.
Moreover, CJ sheds light on alarmingly low diagnosis rates for women, transgender individuals, and non-binary individuals, urging readers to advocate for improved healthcare. This book also explores the reasons why the diagnosis rates are so low for women, transgender and non-binary folk, why this matters, and why we should be demanding better healthcare.
Bio: CJ DeBarra is an Irish journalist from Clonakilty in West Cork. They are a queer, non-binary person who was diagnosed as ADHD as a child. They have been a journalist for fifteen years focusing on local news, history, sex and disability.
