Our guest this week is Yakini Pierce, of ADHD Love. Yakini saw the gap in understanding - people didn't "get" her ADHD kids - and she strives to be a change agent in giving other parents the resources they need and want to help their children succeed. Yakini was diagnosed after both of her children were diagnosed with ADHD, and she started ADHD Love to connect parents of ADHD children with resources and role models as they navigate their child's ADHD diagnosis. She didn't want other parents to struggle as she did to find quality ADHD resources.
Listen in as Yakini shares her Adult ADHD diagnosis journey, shares how her parents supported her as a youth, and what action she took as she rode the roller coaster of being the mom to "that kid" who gets kicked out of daycare. You're not alone, mama.
Her story continues in the next episode, so stay tuned for part 2 with Yakini! We dive into our discussion on self-care, how she chooses a goal, creates the structure needed to be successful, and how we, too, can achieve big goals with ADHD.
Each week of our series on self-care, our guest will share an area of self care that we can use to take care of our ADHD brain, body, mind, and soul. I cannot wait for you to, not only learn what gives you energy, but know wholeheartedly that it is totally doable to take care of ourselves when we make it ADHD friendly. We're starting with simplicity - baby steps and we're aiming for progress over perfection. Come'on. Meet your fellow Successful ADHD Mama.
