I have something a little different for you today. In case you missed listening to my interview with Meredith for Real: The Curious Introvert, she was kind enough to share the episode with me, so I could share it with you all directly. I love responding to questions and thoroughly enjoyed my interview with Meredith.
If my podcast show is the first time you’ve been hearing about the difference between ADHD and executive function skills, you're not alone. If you’re an adult who received a diagnosis of adult ADHD, executive function skills should also have been assessed and discussed with you, in my humble opinion. The odds of having under-developed executive function skills along with ADHD are very high; in fact, almost a given that you will. It's also highly probable that you will have under-developed executive function skills if you've lived with chronic depression, chronic anxiety, trauma, addictions, or chronic...
Today’s episode is part 4 of 4 of my interview with Danny, a writer and director who has been sharing the ups and downs of his life with ADHD.
We begin this section discussing the use of alcohol or other substances to slow down what Danny calls the “cacophony” going on in his head.
And then we dive into all the ways your brain can be retrained so that you can get better outcomes for your life. That is, how to work with your unique brain, how to love it’s quirkiness and how to envision a positive future.
Thanks for listening to my first podcast interview. I had a lot of fun with this...
Today I’m continuing my interview with Danny, who, in the last episode, described how getting diagnosed with ADHD and learning about wins from something I taught at our local MeetUp group pulled him out of darkness and started him on a bright new path.
In Part 3 of this interview I discuss “cognitive hyperactivity,” which is barely being talked about even though it causes huge problems for people.
And then we start talking about solutions.
So settle in for some great tips as we continue Danny’s interview…

Today I’m continuing my interview with Danny, an artistic soul who was diagnosed with ADHD in his 40s.
When we left off at the end of the last episode, Danny had just experienced an epiphany that ADHD might be the source of many of his struggles in life.
This episode starts with Danny’s revelations from listening to an audio book on ADHD and then he describes a very dark time in his life and where he found a lifeline.
Let’s jump right in.

Coming May 24, 2020:
Are you someone who struggled with ADHD your whole life and finally received a diagnosis later in life? If so, then you're not alone. Today I'm interviewing Danny, a writer and director whose story is similar to a lot of folks.
We met at a local ADHD MeetUp group back in 2013 and have been friends ever since.
He’s come a long way, and I want you to hear from him how ADHD almost ruined his life, and he overcame his depression and addictions by working on unique ways to retrain his brain.
In this first part (Part 1 of 4), we discuss Danny’s childhood, how he discovered his ADHD later in life and what cognitive hyperactivity can look like.
Let’s jump right in. The conversation starts with Danny describing himself as we chat a little about our MeetUp days…
