This week on the show, inspired by a listener request, Nikki and Pete are taking on how to talk to your loved ones after you receive your ADHD diagnosis and give you some tools you can use to frame the conversation to work toward shared understanding and growth.
ADHD Coach Caroline Maguire is about to celebrate the release of her new book and we’re thrilled she came back to share the story of the book, and why social skills are so critical for kids and adults alike in healthy development.
We received an email from just about the best boss in the world. Why? Because she asked a question that everyone living quietly with ADHD would like to hear their boss asking. In short: How can I help?
Do social situations exhaust you? Do you feel like your brain is working in overdrive to keep up with your environment? According to our guest this week, that’s a common refrain for those living with ADHD.
Receiving a diagnosis of ADHD can be hard enough. But what do you do when your partner, friends, or family don't work to understand and support you?
Building and maintaining strong friendships is critical to emotional well-being. When we announced that we were doing a show on friendships and ADHD, you spoke up.
Building and maintaining strong friendships is critical to emotional well-being. But ADHD characteristics can put a damper on social convention. How to cope?
Words are important. Since our conversation with James Ochoa and our efforts to change our language around the words manage versus navigate, we’ve heard from many listeners who are trying to change their language, too. This week, we’re taking on so-called “binary language,” conditions we set for ourselves in which there are only two conditions; good or bad, sick or healthy, smart or dumb, organized or not. When you shine a light on this kind of language, it sounds ridiculous, but how often do we let these terms creep into our lives subconsciously?

Talking with others about our ADHD can be a tricky subject. If you’re not completely comfortable with your ADHD and how it affects your work and life, talking about it can be surrounded in self-judgment, even if that judgment isn’t reflected in reality. This week on the show, we have two guests and fellow podcasters to help us navigate this conversation and give you some great advice and a sound reality check on talking to others about your ADHD!
This week on the show, we’re picking up where we left off in our conversation with Melissa Orlov last week with key strategies on managing chores in an ADHD/Non-ADHD relationship. How do you maintain peace through the roadblocks of relationship challenges in keeping your home operating smoothly? We review Melissa’s five-step approach and share our ideas that help cement your efforts to even the field in the home.
