Ask Dr B - Episode 010

Welcome to the tenth episode 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, as well as the addition of a new show format on Thursdays for you to Ask Dr B.

Your questions matter to me.  In fact, we are definitely a curious bunch and deserve to get our questions answered.  I know that I certainly have had and continue to have lots and lots of questions and I need to get them answered or else I spin or ruminate on them.  Perhaps that's you too.

Ask Dr B used to be a regular feature at meetings I facilitate and I realized that I've missed knowing specific questions that people have and answering them, which is how Ask Dr B came to life as part of this show.

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...

A Focused Approach To Dating & ADHD - Episode 009

dating focused approach May 22, 2017

Welcome to the ninth episode 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.

Today's episode was inspired by a question I received from a listener in WA State.

I don't think there are any classes in school about dating, and certainly not about dating and ADHD.  I remember a few classes about things other than academics, but nothing about the basics of relationships, such as understanding who would be a good match for me, how do I meet them, and what do I do once I meet them, to get to know them well enough to determine if we have a promising future together.

Seriously, a significant relationship influences the quality and course of your life for as long as you are in it, and you want to get this right, to the best of your ability.

In this episode, I want to help you get out of frustration and disappointment, and fill in the information...

Personal Possessions Homeless and Can't Be Found Anywhere - Episode 007

homeless stuff overwhelm May 15, 2017

Welcome to the seventh episode 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 believe that each and every one of us comes to this lifetime with a gift of some sort; something we carry inside of us and often aches to be expressed but may be stuck due to our challenges. This was certainly my life years ago and over the years I’ve created strategies and worked out ways of making the most of my gifts and who I am and want to share with you, my listeners, so you might do the same.

As I often say, “The greatest and most neglected human need is the need to be recognized and appreciated.” I believe all people have this need, in addition to our other needs, of course.

In this episode, I talk about taking the overwhelm out of having so much homeless stuff and helping you gain some control and peace of...

Staying Out Of Perfectionists' Prison & Appreciating Perfect Moments - Episode 005

Welcome to the fifth episode 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 firmly believe that each and every one of you deserves a good life; however you define it, especially when you're actively looking for help to achieve it.

In this episode, I talk about "Perfectionists' Prison" and the life sentence without parole that you might be giving yourself, rather than appreciating and celebrating the "Perfect Moments", and making conscious, rich memories from them.

The road to being perfect can be paved with depression, anxiety or even suicidal thoughts due to the inability to achieve perfection.  This isn't an innocent condition; in fact, it can be fatal.  

Thoughts have power.  If you keep thinking that you have to be perfect or else...this is a recipe for disaster.  Life is filled with shades...

What Is Your Procrastination A Symptom Of? - Episode 004

Welcome to the fourth episode of Harness Your ADHD Power, a podcast I created to explore the many facets of adult ADHD life and how we can learn to become unstoppable.

Procrastination is probably one of the most commonly cited problems people have, whether they have ADHD or not.  Can’t get started, can’t stay with it or can’t finish up or perhaps all three at different times.  If this is you and you’ve tried to solve it “head on” by trying to get rid of it – kind of like “just stop it” - how’s that working for you?  Probably not so well! 

In this episode, I talk about understanding procrastination as a symptom rather than the actual problem.

Beyond Cinderella: Living & Loving With An ADHD Partner - Episode 003

Welcome to the third episode of Harness Your ADHD Power, a podcast I created to explore the many facets of adult ADHD life and how we can learn to become unstoppable.

Making sure that no one gets left behind is a long-standing commitment of mine. It's probably an outgrowth of having felt that way for so much of my own life.

What you say matters.  What you do matters.  Who you are matters.  There's a lot of power in all three of these statements.  Be mindful of your speech to yourSELF and others.  Be mindful of the impact of your actions or lack of them on others.  Be mindful of who you are becoming on the way to where it is that you are going.  

In this episode, I talk about getting past the fairy tales and misinformation to the real challenges and real solutions of life with an ADHD partner.

Thanks for Listening!

Developing a Healthier & More Loving Relationship with Your SELF - Episode 002

Welcome to the second episode of Harness Your ADHD Power, a podcast I created to explore the many facets of adult ADHD life and how we can learn to become unstoppable.

Making sure that no one gets left behind is a long-standing commitment of mine. It's probably an outgrowth of having felt that way for so much of my own life.

So long as we keep using language that makes us sound like we're broken or defective, we're probably going to feel that way. Years ago I realized that I am the meaning maker of my life. Whatever I say to myself about the events of my life and what they mean is what I will come to believe. I get to decide what each event will mean to me and how it will make me feel. What a wonderful opportunity!

In this episode, I talk about developing a healthier and more loving relationship with your SELF.

Not Your Fault and Not Off The Hook - Episode 001

Welcome to the first episode 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.

Making sure that no one gets left behind is a long-standing commitment of mine.  It's probably an outgrowth of having felt that way for so much of my own life.

Words have power.  If we keep using language that makes us sound like we're broken or defective, we're probably going to feel that way.  Years ago I realized that I am the meaning maker of my life. Whatever I say to myself about the events of my life and what they mean is what I will come to believe. I get to decide what each event will mean to me and how it will make me feel. What a wonderful opportunity!

In this episode, I talk about why many adults get missed as kids and then diagnosed later in life, why trying to explain ADHD to others can be so difficult or confusing, why being a...
