I have been a member of the ADHD reWired community almost from the beginning, not sure how many years that’s been. The information I have gained from listening to this podcast as well as the others that have been off shoots from it, has literally been life-changing for me. I recently had the pleasure to be interviewed on his podcast and had to confess to that I didn’t know how to write a review or become a Patreon because I’m not very techy. I now know how so I have done both. Eric is a pioneer and his field and has done such a great service for our community. I highly recommend this podcast and I highly recommend you support himBy becoming a Patreon!!!
Diagnosed in my 30s and medicated; I never received the education or coaching that I needed. I was successful in my career and somehow I managed but at the terrible price on developing new co- morbidities that might have been prevented had I been nurtured by coaching . Now at 65 , I am opening up via this podcast ( and other means) to salvage what is left of an intended meaningful and joyful life through new insights and methods. I am 65. It is never too late!
I’m quickly forgiving those who hurt me due to ignorance (including myself) and letting the grief of lost past possibilities fade out.
I’m exceedingly grateful for your podcast.
I really love this show, as well as the other shows in the ADHD ReWired network. Amazing interviews that run the gamut with a lot of really good resources for adults with ADHD
