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.

This podcast is a launching board towards next right steps

I was diagnosed with ADHD at 34 years old this week. I have a lifetime of experiences that should have led me to this realization sooner but here I am. Just now putting it all together.

I took the weekend to get away on a solo trip and took the time to really dig into my feelings about all of this… I was on a hike and randomly searched podcast for Woman with ADHD and found your podcast. I listened to that one, and then another and another and another. It wasn’t just the hyper focus kicking in… I was relating and learning so much! I’ve got tangible next steps of coaches and yoga I want to look into. That’s huge for me.

I have forgiven myself for things I didn’t even know I was holding onto . I’m tapping into understanding myself in a whole new way. So thank you. Thank you for each and every episode . You are changing lives by casting the light on how to thrive and pivot with as a woman living with ADHD .

Keeps me interested

And that can be hard to do with an ADHD brain! Tracy is my favorite podcast host. She’s smart, funny, relatable, and helps me so much with understanding my ADHD. Thank you, Tracy!

Relatable and informative

As an adult woman, it's been hard to find info, especially on the correlation between ADHD and perimenopause which I suspected for year. This podcast is a relief and helps me to understand that I'm not alone. I took one star off because there are times where Tracey launches into an episode using terms and acronyms without explaining them, even briefly. I assume this is because she has covered these topics and terms in earlier episodes, however, to those of us who are new, we may be skipping around (ADHD!) to listen to episodes that are both new and old. Also, it seems anxious ADHD is referenced much more than depressive ADHD. I'd love to hear more about it! Aside from those small observations, a great podcast!
