Listen up - Mold isn’t innocent & can really impact your brain & body functions - Episode 047

Hey ADDers!  So glad you could join me for today’s podcast episode.  I shared in the last episode that I was late on the release of episode 46 because of some health challenges last week, and said that I was going to talk about it today.  So, today’s episode is a little different format, however, I trust you will find benefit in the content.

The information I need to share today is relevant whether you have ADHD, executive function deficits, depression, anxiety or physical health challenges.  Why is it important for me to share this?  Because if you aren’t aware of the far-reaching effects of mold (which I wasn’t) and where it can hide and what it can do to your brain and body, you need this information.  And I’m only scratching the surface here.

And it isn’t just water leaks creating mold you need to be thinking of.  Many of the adults I work with have stacks and stacks of papers lying all around because...

Ask Dr B – about Co-Existing ADHD & Executive Function Disorder - Episode 046

Hey ADDers!  I’m so glad you could join me today, and hope that you’ve taken the time to listen to a few key episodes that seem to be on the minds of many of my listeners; perhaps you are one of them:  Episode 036, Ask Dr B About The High Cost Of Not Knowing About Executive Function, Episode 027, Figuring Out Where To Start When So Much Needs Your Attention Now, and Episode 001, It’s Not Your Fault & You’re Not Off The Hook Either.  If you’ve listened to all three of these episodes, you know what I’m talking about and if you haven’t I highly recommend that you listen to them soon.

Today, I want to talk about how ADHD and Executive Function Disorder or EFD co-exist and what that looks like.  I feel it’s important for me to talk about this because I keep hearing people talk about their ADHD symptoms and they are confusing their ADHD symptoms with their EFD symptoms.  So, I want to shed some light on EFD...

Welcome to the twentieth Ask Dr B episode, and the forty-fourth 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.

Hey ADDers! I’m so glad you could join me today, and hope that you’ve taken the time to listen to Monday’s episode on H.O.P.E., which stands for Help One Person Everyday and That Person Is YOU! I feel the message is relevant to everyone, whether you live with ADHD or not.

I’ve received a lot of questions lately about the complexities of living with depression, anxiety and/or ADHD, so that’s today’s focus. I’m also going to focus on what family members can do to help a loved one who is suffering with any or all of these.

For you to break free of the limitations of any of these, and have things get better for you, you’re going to need to change your attitude or...

Ask Dr B – about the High Cost of Not Knowing About Executive Functions - Episode 036

Welcome to the sixteenth Ask Dr B episode, and the thirty-sixth 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.  We’ve got a lot to cover today, so let’s get to it.

I’ve been pretty hyperfocused lately on Executive Function overall and specifically the skills that we need to develop for a more successful adult life, especially if we didn’t develop them starting back in childhood.  So whether you’ve mastered them all (which probably isn’t true if you’re listening to my podcast show) or will be learning them now, the point is, you need to learn them because they’re the foundational skills that we build a successful adult life on; with greater ability to successfully navigate the responsibilities that comes with adulthood....

Welcome to the fourteenth Ask Dr B episode, and the thirty-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.  We’ve got a tighter format, great topics and clear steps to take starting today, so let’s get to it.

I’m going to be addressing three inter-related topics today to help you see the path from fuzzy to focused on becoming the successful adult living with ADHD you deserve to be.  It’s definitely a journey, one that’s unique for each person. 

And if you’re on this journey, I applaud you for your courage straight away.  Truly!  It definitely takes courage and a lot of what I’m going to be talking about today to rise up and become the person you were intended to become. ...

Moving Beyond the Damage of Years of Undiagnosed ADHD - Episode 023

Welcome to the twenty-third 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.

MAKE YOUR NEEDS KNOW TO ME! CLICK HERE to participate; takes just a few minutes.

I’ve been hearing from more and more of you about how bad it’s been to live so much of your life not knowing about your ADHD, and what you could do to help yourself.  And I’ve also been hearing from loved ones and friends of adults with ADHD telling me they want to understand more about living with adult ADHD so they can be supportive of those they care about.

Well, that’s what I’d like to go after today and see what I can do about eliminating some of the needless suffering and misunderstanding that is tearing relationships and families apart, as well as having you think of yourself in a less than favorable way, to put it mildly.  Hearing so...

Ask Dr B - Episode 016

Welcome to the sixteenth 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....

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!

Thanks so much for joining me for my podcast launch. Have some feedback you'd like to share? Leave a note in the comment...
