We called for questions and you delivered! Thank you to everyone who wrote in — We hope we did your questions justice!
Ever wondered what happens at a national ADHD conference? OK… that’s a leading question. This week, you're going to find out.
We had so many fantastic submissions for our "What do you want the world to know about ADHD" poll that we had to do TWO episodes!
There are so many signals coming at us; judgments, criticisms, guidance, and support. But so often, these messages come from those with limited experience with ADHD. This week on the show, asked you a simple question: What is it that you want the world to know about your life with ADHD?
We’ve been working hard over the last few weeks to talk about how we define success. The lesson, from your own contributions, is largely that we as a group need to get better at it. We’re stuck in a place where success, to us, means a defiant win. But the space between our big wins can feel like a chasm. And the isolation and judgment that comes with ADHD can make that chasm unusually dark.
We’re backing up on questions again! This week we’re taking a raft of your questions and have some tools, tips, products, and solutions you might try for all of them. From re-tuning your brain from overstimulation and hyper-focus, to marriage buckets, noise-canceling headphones and so much more!
We ended up with a number of backlog questions, and more than a few on writing long projects with ADHD, so this week we’re catching up! What kinds of jobs are well-suited for ADHD, particularly inattentive type? How do you keep yourself free from digital distractions? How do you keep plot, character, timeline all organized in your head when writing a novel with ADHD? All that and more on deck this week on The ADHD Podcast!

Today was supposed to be a Digital episode full of a discussion on the whims of our individual value systems around our processes. It was going to be great, trust us. But then we got all this great feedback from listeners and it all sort of stacked up on us!
