ADHD Women and Productivity Shame

I’ve been thinking a lot over the past few months about ADHD women and productivity shame. What is productivity shame? Well, I didn’t come up with the name. In fact I stole it from Jocelyn K. Glei.

Surviving the Emotional Tornado of ADHD

The emotional tornado of ADHD is a real thing. It has always been there but we’ve just started talking about more it in recent years. You’ve probably read about emotional dysregulation or rejection sensitive dysphoria at this point, and you might have recognized the symptoms in yourself.

Lets Get Real

  No really, Lets Get Real about life as a woman, business, aging, relationships and parenting.  WITH ADHD. Lets get real about all of it. Because I’m forty and I just don’t care as much any more about appealing to everyone. What’s that expression? If you try to serve everyone, then you end up serving […]

ADHD Women and Self-Compassion

ADHD Women and Self-Compassion do not just go together. At least not in a conversation. You know what I mean. ADHD women don’t talk about self-compassion the same way we talk about our struggles.

So why not do a podcast on the subject? […]

At the end of my conversation with Dania Chebib I asked her how we should end our recording. And she said, “Shame is not your story.” It was perfect, so I made it the title of episode 304. Dania Chebib is a psychotherapist practicing out of Kelowna, British Columbia. Her areas of specialty include: ADHD/Autism […]

ADHD men struggle too

I usually write about ADHD women, but as I have branched out into this podcast I’ve had the opportunity to meet more people. And I’ve started to notice that ADHD men struggle, too. We just aren’t talking about it. Until I got to know Marc Almodovar, I had not even considered how hard it is […]
