    50: the one about talking so a doctor will listen

    50: the one about talking so a doctor will listen

    “A weird trick to get doctors to listen to you,” by journalist Carolyn Liddell caught Moira’s eye when she was considering how to successfully raise another medical concern. People with ADHD are at higher risk of gaslighting and not receiving adequate medical support.  Moira shares her journey with multiple health conditions & self-advocacy. When we can figure out what might be wrong, how do we bring it up to our doctors without offending them and be heard?

    49: the one about starting

    Moira is continuing the series on getting things done--starting can be hard.   When creating a schedule or trying to build habits isn't working, maybe it's time to consider expanding our repertoire to include comfortable and workable options to get to the starting line, ways to start, ease in,  and be ready for potential roadblocks.

    48: the one about setting the stage

    48: the one about setting the stage

    It's so easy when we have ADHD to skip, jump ahead, forget or avoid any stages needed to get something done. So, we're not spending any time on what happens then! Instead, we are returning to some unfinished business from Episodes 40 and 41 to look at how preparation can help.  When we set the stage for success, we consider including preparation in ways we like to increase our ease, ability and happiness.

    46: the one about getting real with time

    46: the one about getting real with time

    It’s true: ADHD significantly impacts our ability to care for our needs and responsibilities and to do so on time. Today we’re talking about how to get out of that bind. Life feels lighter when we are more accurate about how long things take and what is possible in a day. Getting real with time includes questioning what doesn’t work with typical advice, how it can lower stress and overwhelm, and allow more of you in your day. It’s time to experiment with what works for us to end the fight with time.

    45: the one about time awareness

     How do we struggle with time? Let’s count the ways. Today we are talking about not knowing where it goes, being surprised by the time and some small steps to increase our time awareness.   This includes sharing Moira’s struggle to see and accept limitations such as 24 hours in a day, and things we can do to make time awareness easier by continuing our series on ADHD & Time, following ep. 44, the one about time blindness.

Thank you Moira

Thank you for sharing your experience with us. You have helped me so much, just by being you and talking about your experiences with late diagnosed ADHD. I was diagnosed at age 47, and now I’m two years into the process of figuring out how to live more healthily with this brain. The first year was so painful. I was a grieving who I thought I was and wanting that person back, having ‘aha’ moments about why big things went wrong in my life so far, figuring out that I’m not actually a bad person when I forget important things that impact myself and my loved ones in a negative way.
So I spent that year trying to ‘plan’ and ‘organize’ my way out of having ADHD. That totally didn’t work, like AT ALL.
So now I’m trying to figure out how to stop beating myself up for having this brain. If ya can’t get out of it, get into it… hopefully this new way of thinking will help me want to keep going.
This is totally exhausting..

Amazing!!

I am so grateful for this podcast! I have listened to the first 5 episodes and it is as if she is telling my story. This has helped me so much to feel “seen” and to feel like I’m not alone in this journey I’m on of trying to figure out how to cope with my late diagnosis of combined type ADHD. I tear up during every episode because I feel validated and understood and hopeful that I can learn and develop the skills to manage my ADHD symptoms better. Thank you for sharing your story and giving tips and tricks to help others like me :) You have already changed my life. Thank you!
