    Sydni Rubio: Insatiable curiosity & dismissive doctors

    Sydni Rubio: Insatiable curiosity & dismissive doctors

    Episode 55 with Sydni Rubio.


    "My hyperactivity manifests as really aggressive driving, as well as impatience and impulsivity."


    Sydni is the creator and founder of What in the ADHD? She started the brand in January 2021 with the simple hope of sharing accessible ADHD information with others and the science behind *why* we have certain traits and behaviors. With a strong background in teaching and science, she breaks down a lot of obtuse concepts in relatable, humorous and easy to digest YouTube videos.


    What in the ADHD? is now an established LLC that’s dedicated to normalizing ADHD and sharing information about it in a fun, inclusive, and accessible way via blogs, videos, tweets, and community surveys. 


    We talk about our scientific brains and our insatiable curiosity and desire to solve puzzles. We also talk about some red flags when seeking an ADHD diagnosis and how so many of us have encountered dismissive doctors and felt minimized when seeking a diagnosis. And we also talk about community and advocacy and how feeling seen and knowing you’re not alone is such a HUGE part of the diagnosis journey in adulthood.

    Tessa MacKay paints contemporary realism and large-scale hyperrealism portraiture and is based in Perth, Western Australia. 


    Despite being diagnosed with dyslexia and ADHD from an early age, she only recently started to embrace and work on the kind of quirks that are associated with ADHD in women.

Sensitivity is good. ,

A weight off my shoulders.

Thanks a million Katy for helping lift a huge weight off my shoulders. Your excellent podcast has lifted my spirits immensely. Hearing the conversations with ADHD women of all ages has stopped my self judgement in its tracks and got me giggling along as I identify with the funny things we all seem to do. The biggest relief of my late ADHD discovery, is that I finally have the answer to a question that’s nagged me for 30 years. A friend once asked me... “How can someone so talented still be struggling?” And (after accepting the compliment) I thought to myself, Yeah, HOW COME ?
The work you’re doing here is GOLD! x

A relief and a joy

Just want to send a big thank you for the podcast - I’ve just been diagnosed with adhd at the age of 35 (after years of suspecting it…) and I feel relief as well as complete terror. Finding this podcast has helped to dissipate some of that fear and replaced it with a sense of hope and connection. I’ve been able to find an episode for pretty much every fear, question, peculiarity that has been making me feel isolated for so long. I’m so glad I found you!!
