This podcast is for smart, high-ability ADD/ADHD (diagnosed or suspecting) women who see their symptoms as more positive than negative. I’m Tracy Otsuka your host and I’m committed to changing the conversation around ADHD. When I was diagnosed eight months after my son, my entire life suddenly made perfect sense but all I heard about was everything that my ADHD brain SHOULD be struggling with when in fact I would come to learn that my ADHD is responsible for some of my greatest superpowers.

One other thing, we constantly hear about all the successful ADHD men, but no one talks about the women. This podcast is here to change that dynamic. ADHD women are my people, and I’m here to acknowledge, support and cheer them on.

Invaluable!

This podcast is upbeat, informative, and empowering not only for those who have ADHD but for those who love those who have ADHD. Understanding how the brain works for those I hold dear has been a complex puzzle and a roller coaster ride. Undiagnosed or unembraced ADHD—and there’s a lot of that for many reasons—can unwittingly wreck havoc on relationships. Tracy, thank you for shedding light and humor and for naming ADHD a super power— because it is!!!

So Many Lightbulb Moments!

I stumbled upon this podcast at the beginning of the summer (2019). As a mom of young kids with ADHD, I finally advocated for myself after knowing forever I struggled with it, and got an official diagnosis a year ago at age 41.
After giving a random episode a listen, I was immediately hooked. In each episode, Tracy shares so many eye opening facts while also highlighting the strengths women with ADHD possess. Thru her own research, her own experiences as a woman with ADHD, interviews with experts on how the ADHD brain works, and feedback from listeners, she breaks down the ways & whys of how our thinking steers us, herself included, as we navigate the challenges and embrace the superpowers we possess because of / in spite of \ our neuro-diverse thinking and how it presents in our various roles in life : woman, wife, partner, mother, daughter, sister, colleague, entrepreneur, and friend.
I’ve even shared episodes with some of my friends who don’t have ADHD because much of the content is so interesting, relevant, relatable and reassuring.
Listening to this down-to-earth / real-talk, BRILLIANT podcast has been an eye-opening life changer for me!! There have been SO many lightbulb moments! I enjoy tuning in & am so appreciative of Tracy’s passion to share all she’s learned, while also being a cheerleader for the amazing characteristics our brains provide us with every day.
