Building and maintaining strong friendships is critical to emotional well-being. But ADHD characteristics can put a damper on social convention. How to cope?
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’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!

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.

We review Melissa’s five-step approach and share our ideas that help cement your efforts to even the field in the home.

This week on the show we’re deeply honored to welcome the fantastic Melissa Orlov. She’s a marriage consultant and leading expert in how ADHD affects relationships.
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!
This week on the show, we take on a listener question from Liz. Her challenge: Overcoming the anxiety and fear that comes with getting married and becoming a new parent, and how to navigate these experiences in the face of living with ADHD.
We’ve all been there, stuck between the rock that is our own responsibilities, and the hard place of the world that goes on when we’re not there to experience it. The grass is always greener, we say, and we find ourselves living in FoMO: the Fear of Missing Out.
Unbelievably, it’s back to school season. If it hasn’t hit your community yet, it’s coming, and that means it’s time to evaluate your strategies as a parent in helping your kids manage their ADHD in the classroom and beyond.

It’s SUMMERTIME! We’re officially gearing up for our own vacations here on The ADHD Podcast so we thought we’d take some time today to talk about more than just vacations. It’s about managing kids, and accomplishing goals, and making the best use of your time that you possibly can.
If you share space with another person, then organizing is a team sport. From defining the purpose of shared spaces to keeping one another accountable, you can’t build new habits if you don’t have the support of those who spend their time in your proximity. This week on the show, we’re talking all about how to engage your family in supporting organizing efforts.
It's Thanksgiving here in the United States and while there is certainly some nod to history here around the founding of this special time in our country, it has come to mean something more than its historical context. It is a time of gratitude.
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!
