Ask Dr B - about Myths, Neuroplasticity & Mental Paralysis - 022

adhd ask dr. b podcast Jul 06, 2017

Welcome to the ninth Ask Dr B episode, and the twenty-second episode overall of Harness Your ADHD Power, a podcast show I created to explore the many facets of adult life with ADHD and how you can learn to harness your personal ADHD power to become unstoppable.

I’m so glad you could join me today for my podcast show.  I’ve changed things up a bit so you don’t get into a rut and stop paying attention in the moment because you anticipate what’s coming next.  A little newness keeps things fresh.  Plus, this is good training for you to not jump to conclusions or assumptions and miss something important; a common trait with ADHD.

Another common trait is being very curious; in other words, having lots and lots of questions!  That’s definitely me!!  Probably you too!

So, did you get a good night’s sleep last night?  Feel rested this morning and ready for your day?  Are you looking forward to what you have going on today?  I hope so.  And if not, then there’s things to pay attention to, and behaviors to upgrade so you can have better days.  I really want that to happen for you.

What about your questions?  Did you wake up with any this morning?  If so, and you’re looking for answers, consider sending your questions over to me so I can answer them or find the answers for you.  I’d love to do that!  Or perhaps your questions arise in the moment, when you think about the tasks you have to complete and feel overwhelmed before you even get to them because you have questions about what to do, when to do it, how to do it or if you even should do it?  Is that you?  If so, then keep track of your questions, if you can, and send them over to me so I can help you get answers and get unstuck.  OK? 

My VERY curious mind is always wondering what the #1 biggest struggle or frustration is for you right now, so I can help you with it.  I wake up each day wondering that, so I can direct my energy to the solutions you need.  I really want to know; I do.  The thought of millions of adults with ADHD suffering every day is a painful thought to me, especially when I have answers and solutions that could ease your pain.

In this episode, I answer the questions you have about issues or challenges you experience as an adult living with ADHD, and offer you hope.  Today's questions come from the topics  of Myths about ADHD, Neuroplasticity and Brain Changes, and Hyperfocus and Mental Paralysis.  Thank you for your questions, Emi, Bob and Z.

And remember to pay attention to your WINS!! Look for them, acknowledge them, celebrate them in a full-hearted way! Exaggerate your emotions and feel the rush of excitement of having done something special and worthy of celebrating.  You can even celebrate YOU!
