90 Day Fiance stars Emily and Sasha married and their lovely son grows up in the USA. Recently, Emily got excited as they plan a move to a new home. Now, she took to Instagram and told her fans quite a lot about her that they never saw on TLC. She said that she saw some new followers on her page, so she updated them with some personal stuff.
90 Day Fiance – Emily talks about her ADHD
In her very long post, one thing Emily mentioned at length, is her ADHD. She said that the diagnosis came when she attended high school. Emily mentioned those horrid school reports that said, ‘smart but doesn’t apply herself.” She explained that as a child she always experienced “four different things” going on in her mind. These days, she wised up and makes sure to take her meds. Plus, she put timers in her home, which presumably helps her stay focused.
Some fans get critical of the 90 Day Fiance couple because they speak both Russian and English to their son. But Emily’s all over that. She studied language and said she took “an intro to linguistics class in university.” She “decided to minor in TESOL.” The best studies she enjoyed were her “sociolinguistic classes.” So, she knows she won’t developmentally delay her son by using two languages with him. Other things she mentioned included her love for travel and where she hopes to go one day.
Travel and a love for history
Emily travels a lot and she also loves looking into her family history. Partly, that motivated some of her travel plans. Going to Russia where she taught, she said that came from “a journey of self-discovery.” After her academic year in Russia, she planned on checking out her family history in Ireland. As fans know, things turned out differently for her. She ended up pregnant with her husband Sasha in her life. But, she still hopes one day they do that.
But before that, the 90 Day Fiance star made it to “Hong Kong, Macau, and S. Korea.” Not letting a teaching opportunity go by overseas, she “volunteered as an English teacher for kindergarteners.” Then, she spoke about her personality type. Emily said she’s an “extroverted introvert” That means she enjoys “deep conversation” if they take place naturally. But, she prefers if you don’t hold a conversation when she watches the television.

Hi 👋🏻 everyone. I’m seeing a lot of new visitors here on my profile. I thought I’d say hi and share a few random facts about me: 1. I like genealogy and learning about family history. I went to Russia originally to teach and go on a journey of self-discovery. My maiden name, McCue, apparently means “son of fire” which I think is pretty cool. 2. I love to travel. I intended to make my way across Europe after teaching an academic year in Russia. I wanted to fly home from Ireland. Those plans were put on hold, but I will go one day. I’ve also been to Hong Kong, Macau, and S. Korea. I volunteered as an English teacher for kindergarteners while there and decided to major in secondary Ed afterwards. 3. I love studying language. I took an intro to linguistics class in university and decided to minor in TESOL, so I could take more. My sociolinguistic classes were my favorite. If I could get a free MA in anything, it would be Applied Linguistics. It pains me when people tell me my child will have a speech delay if we speak 2 languages to him. 4. I was diagnosed with ADHD in high school. This diagnoses saved me. I used to be teased for literally looking up in the clouds at school. I usually have four different things going on in my mind. I got the “smart but doesn’t apply herself” comment a lot in school. I know enough strategies now to be okay abroad where I can’t have my meds, but my keys have definitely ended up in the refrigerator. I hate the term ADHD. I pay attention to everything. It is real. My brain looks different on a scan than a neurotypical brain. There are timers everywhere in my home. 5. I’m an extroverted introvert. On every personality test, I score right in the middle. So, we can definitely be friends if you’re cool with watching reality TV without trying to have a conversation. I do enjoy deep conversations, though. If that happens naturally, I’m definitely okay with that. 6. I love spicy food. I think that I lack tastebuds. It’s funny I married Sasha who finds pepper too spicy. I made him spaghetti on one of our first dates. I always put red pepper flakes in the sauce. He was tearing up but still ate it 😄. Tell me 1 fact about you ☺️.
Emily’s fans happy she talked about ADHD
She also touched on other things like food preferences. Emily loves spicy food. But Sasha’s not really used to it. Many fans responded to the post, especially those with ADHD. Emily told a fan who liked that she got diagnosed at school, “I would have never finished school without therapy and treatment.”
Now you know Emily a little bit better, what do you think about what she said and what fans saw on 90 Day Fiance? Sound off in the comments below.
