I will have exciting things I’m involved in, then I have an episode that makes me feel rejected and I fall into a rumination dive and it takes me a while to get back up. I’m trying to find a way to catch myself sooner, get out of it sooner, so I can continue on the path towards my goal and keep my momentum going. I have started on meds and am having trouble unwinding and slowing my brain down at the end of the day. I wanted to know what your tips are for some of that. How do Time-Timers work?  Bonus: Panelists also share some of the other time-tracking tools they use!  I’m looking for tips on how to help my partner understand what ADHD is and what it isn’t. My partner is neurotypical. My partner seems to not believe ADHD is a real thing, or that it’s a crutch to misplace things. How can I get him to understand?  I was just diagnosed about two months ago. I’m navigating this new identity and trying to find my community. I’m trying to figure out how to navigate who to tell and how to know who to tell. I’ve had some conversations go surprisingly well and others not go so well. How do you handle being true to yourself while also protecting yourself?  Are there any personal assistants that understand ADHD and could help keep me accountable?  Check out the Other Podcasts on the ADHD reWired Podcast Network: with Brendan Mahan with Will Curb with MJ Siemens with Moira Maybin coming soon - Wait, What Was the Question? with Will Curb and Coach Roxie Martin!

    406 | November Live Q&A with Brendan Mahan, Will Curb, MJ Siemens, ADHD reWired Coaches Moira Maybin & Roxie Martin, and Barb!

    1:06:21

    Join the ADHD reWired Podcast Family every second Tuesday of the month for a Live Q&A! In this Q&A episode, you’ll hear Eric, Barb, Brendan, Will, MJ, Moira, and Roxie answer your ADHD-related questions!  What you’ll hear in this episode: What are some tips for managing ADHD and exercise post-surgery? Moira talks about her recovery process from falling off a cliff and brain injury.  Find different ways to take care of yourself.  Recovery takes time. As the weeks go by, new shiny habits fall off. Any advice for sticking to making progress on weight loss? What’s your “Why”?  Go slowly. It may be helpful to think more of what you want to add to your diet instead of what you want to take out. Start with the supermarket.  Think about the health of the gut microbiome. Also mentioned here: Make it fun and do things that make you feel good. My partner and I have ADHD and we have a young child with ADHD. While they’re too young for a diagnosis, what resources can we use, where can we start exploring, and what are habits we can start building now so they don’t have to struggle like I did? Be mindful of shame and be compassionate. “My child is not giving me a hard time, they are having a hard time.” Try your best to stay out of wor-st-case scenario thinking.  Mentioned here: Focus on connection, communication, and anxiety management.  Look at the motivation of what your child is doing instead of the outcomes. Model repairing and model owning your mistakes.  Do you have advice about disclosing ADHD in the workplace?  Mentioned here:   Don’t disclose your ADHD, do disclose what you need to be successful. Mentioned here: “Ask JAN” Mentioned here:      What are your best home-hacks?  Cleaning and decluttering are not the same thing. Take a picture of your workspace, then share it. Then, after you’ve finished cleaning, take a picture when you’re done! Mentioned here:   Keep it simple, like one load of laundry, because that is easier to start and get to “done”.  Store cleaning supplies everywhere you need them. For example, if you have more than one bathroom, keep cleaning supplies in both bathrooms. If you can, consider a cleaning service. Baskets are a great way to keep clutter contained. Don’t live alone? Split up your cleaning duties.  Start small and start cleaning for five minutes - you may be surprised how much you can get done! Gamify the cleaning! If you start cleaning and it turns out to be a project, add it to your task list and find a way you can be reminded to finish. If I am not diagnosed yet, what do I need to prepare for my ADHD evaluation to make sure my symptoms get taken seriously, especially if I did fine in school and was a gifted kid?  Have a bullet point of things you want to share with the evaluator.  It’s OK to share that you are concerned that your symptoms may not be taken seriously.  A good evaluator will ask good questions and will help you tell your story to be able to come up with a diagnosis. Mentioned here: Why has it been observed that women are more commonly misdiagnosed than men?  Is the practice of improv helpful for building skills to manage ADHD? What could this target be? Accepting “what is” and seeing what we can actually do about our situations. For example: When something unexpected happens, how do we accept that as it is, and identify what can we do and problem-solve around this?” Improv can open us to more growth-mindset thinking.  Life is not a script. Life is improv! The more we can adapt to what’s thrown at us, the better we’re going to do.  Might the practice of improv be helpful for folks with ADHD who are verbal processors? Mentioned here:   Mentioned here:   I am a single parent. My child is accident prone and has a lot of energy. After being diagnosed at 5-years old, I was forced by my child’s school to start medication. Nothing has happened. How else can I help my now 6-year old?  If you are asking how you can help your kids, you are already on the right track.  In the United States: schools are not allowed to force your kid to take medication.  Find therapists who specialize in ADHD. Keep communication open with teachers and daycares. Mentioned here: You are the best advocate for your child.   As we reflect on 2021, Eric asks:  What can you do, what do you want to do come 2022 to help rewire your ADHD beyond learning about it? What are the actions you want to take that will make the biggest difference in the lives of yourselves, of your family, where you work, and your communities?  Check out the Other Podcasts on the ADHD reWired Podcast Network: with Brendan Mahan with Will Curb with MJ Siemens with Moira Maybin coming soon - Wait, What Was the Question? with Will Curb and Coach Roxie Martin!

    405 | The Mess of Personal Growth with MJ from ADHD Diversified

    43:44

    In this episode, Eric and MJ have an unmedicated dialogue about the messiness of personal growth, the work it took to rewrite the stories she held about her self-worth, and how happy she was to have been proven wrong about the stories she’s told herself since completing a season of ADHD reWired’s Coaching & Accountability Groups in the summer of 2020. They continue the conversation about the work they’ve put in to achieve their goals, how heartwarming it is to witness others learn to love and accept themselves, and that no one with ADHD ever has to go on their growth journey alone.  The final registration event for the 27th season of Coaching & Accountability Groups is on Thursday, December 9th! There are only a few spots left in Eric’s groups (Sections 3 and 4). Moira and Roxie’s groups are now full. Register for our final event by going to to add your name to our winter interest list!

Since completing her own season in season of ADHD reWired’s Coaching & Accountability Groups in Season 21, she created and hosts the ADHD Diversified Podcast and is a returning peer-mentor for the Coaching & Accountability Groups.    What you’ll hear about in this episode: “When you first started with being a member of the coaching groups, do you think you realized how hard you were on yourself?” - Eric What is the importance of better and more accurate language to describe our feelings and our emotions?  “It’s still hard to believe that the good stuff is true even though there’s clear evidence that there’s a difference being made .” - MJ Compassionate ass-kicking & meeting ourselves where we’re at... “Real growth isn’t about fast-tracking.” - MJ Why is joining the Coaching & Accountability groups with an open mind so important?  The stories we’ve told ourselves may have been true in the past, but they don’t have to be true right now.  “I think if I would’ve stayed stuck... thinking that my mentality was right, I would not be where I am right now.” - MJ You don’t have to be an entrepreneur to have an entrepreneurial mindset.  “I do not know it all and I absolutely don’t do it all perfectly.” - Eric  Honorable Mentions: Check out the Other Podcasts on the ADHD reWired Podcast Network: with Brendan Mahan with Will Curb with MJ Siemens with Moira Maybin coming soon - Wait, What Was the Question? with Will Curb and Coach Roxie Martin!

    404 | Let Pleasure be the Measure with Pasha Marlowe

    52:35

    In this episode, Eric is joined by Pasha Marlowe who was diagnosed with ADHD at 49. She is a family therapist, therapeutic comedy coach, ADHD coach, podcast host and author. She artfully blends her unique life experience with her life’s work in healing through psychotherapy, embodied emotions, holistic wellness, life-coaching, ADHD coaching, CBT coaching, theatre, and comedy.  Pasha’s podcast, “Let Pleasure be the Measure” is a playground of conversations about the importance of incorporating pleasure, play, and humor into your personal work, home, and sex life. Pasha also published a book in 2021 called, “My Next Husband Will be a Lesbian.”  What you’ll hear in this episode: What did it feel like to be in a place that felt so helpless and challenging to be able to bring humor into a dark space? What is therapeutic comedy? “...folks with ADHD have the ability to think creatively, potentially think outside the box, gain new perspectives, see things from a different angle - which, in this case is really a beautiful gift… I feel like... creativity is a way to manage our ADHD stress.” - Pasha Marlowe Because there is so much value in using humor, where is the line between when you call someone out for acting like the clown and avoiding versus actually dealing with and recognizing that it is a healthy tool? “Let Pleasure be the Measure” - Where did this podcast idea come from? “Play is the opposite of perfection.” - Pasha Marlowe What is, “My Next Husband Will be a Lesbian” all about?
