Today on the show, Dr. Dodson joins Nikki Kinzer and Pete Wright to discuss Rejection Sensitive Dysphoria and provide new language to frame a state those living with ADHD know all too well.
This week's question comes from a listener: how do you navigate the procrastination-anxiety loop that emerges when hyperfocus and disinterest collide head on? This week on the show, Nikki shares background on the conditions that allow this sort of hyperfocus and procrastination to occur, and tools to shape a response before it happens again.
This week on the show, Nikki takes to the mic to interview Pete and Tommy Metz III about their anxiety podcast, ‘What’s That Smell?’
Living with ADHD is a mystery. Sometimes, we’re completely present and aware of our symptoms, sure. But most of the time, we aren’t completely aware of what we’re doing, why we’re doing it, or the impact our symptoms are having on others… until we’re thrown in a laboratory.
This week on the show we’re talking all about letting go: letting go of the fear of starting small, letting go of the lists that plague us getting in the way of what we need to do today, letting go of a mistaken appreciation of quantity in favor of quality.
Do you have FOLI? Never heard of it? Don’t worry, we hadn’t either. But if you’re living with ADHD, once we tell you about “Fear of Losing Interest,” we’re pretty sure you’ll be able to relate.
If you're living with ADHD, you know what it's like to feel misunderstood. That isolation can lead you to a place where advice like, "you should just get out more," is tough to take seriously. Today on the show, we're talking all about loneliness.
We may start our days with the best intentions. We have our lists and routines, our goals and objectives that we think we’re ready to accomplish. But what happens when you’re thrown off track? What happens when that unexpected phone call delivers some bad news, or the kids get sick, or the car breaks down?
If you don’t have some accommodations in place to account for these surprises, you won’t be able to bounce back! You’ll be unconsciously sabotaging your own day. On the show this week, we’re talking about the things you can do today — and every day — to build your resilience so that you can make more of your days terrific and fulfilling!

This week we continue our discussion on ADHD and the holidays, with a conversation around anxiety, and the things that happen to us over big holidays that drive that anxiety and stress to their peak!
Tis the season! Now that we’ve crested Halloween, the roller coaster of the holiday season is ramping up to full speed. It’s easy to let the overwhelm of the season get the better of us, but if you’re struggling with ADHD, that overwhelm can lead to stagnation of a much more serious sort.
This week on the show, Nikki Kinzer and Pete Wright share their own journeys with anxiety and offer strategies for new college students to move through attacks and back to calm.
