ADHD Home Management

  Several years ago when I was writing more posts about homemaking someone suggested I produce an ADHD Home Management binder. I laughed. A lot. Because I am absolutely not an expert on managing a home with or without ADHD. But I will say I’ve come to terms with how ADHD affects my ability to […]

But I’d argue this is a conversation we should be having. You get the diagnosis, and then you are pretty much […]

This is what I learned about women’s hormones and ADHD: A woman’s hormones are as individual as the ADHD diagnosis itself. Turning 40 is no joke.
