Wow

Let me preface this by saying at 30 one week ago someone (in my memory) said I should be tested. I asked my mom and I went diagnosed BUT untreated since elementary school. So I started researching and trying to find testing. I found the podcast and in the 20 short episodes I’ve been able to listen to I’ve cried, I’ve found understanding, I went from shame to this isn’t something I can control, I find community in how I’ve felt for years, and I’ve found acceptance in medication. I got my results from my test yesterday and I “clearly meets the criteria for ADHD, combine type.......it’s probable her self esteem has been extremely affected....I suggest medical care” and in that sentence because of this podcast I found relief vs shame. I’ve signed up for focus and I’m ready to turn my life around and thrive. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Also I need a T-shirt that says “Clearly.”

Love that I discovered this podcast!

This podcast has given me the courage to finally see a doctor about my ADD ( I’m 42!!). I listen to you and your guests and recognize so much of myself in you all. I have fought this for so long and my hot mess of a life really shows it. You have encouraged me to finally seek help. Thank you.

I thought I was loosing my mind

I got diagnosed as a kid, and honestly had a really hard childhood. I was heavily shamed and punished for what I now know are symptoms of ADHD. Because I never knew what my diagnosis actually meant I figured it wasn’t a big deal, and I got off medication as an adult. I’ve spent the last 6 years wondering what was wrong with me, and making poor choices. I finally started to look into ADHD and I found Kristen. Not only am I a better mother, and wife, I’m more confident. Kristen teaches you about ADHD with so much understanding and kindness while also being incredibly real and honest. She’s funny and engaging, and her voice is very calming which helps keep me interested and engaged. I honestly can’t give her enough praise because she’s truly opening my eyes to who I am, and I really didn’t understand how badly my misinformation and self shaming was hurting my life. Kristen helped me see that I am exactly who I need to be, and if people don’t like me, that’s okay, because I like me. I know that’s a really basic concept, but I truly didn’t understand it.

Last thing! When she said “Adults can do whatever they want” that blew my mind. 😂 I never considered that this is my life, and I should live it for myself, and not just do things to make people happy. I’ve always been a good little soldier, and wouldn’t even jaywalk or tell a white lie because I was so scared of getting in trouble.

So basically, if you think you might have ADHD, but you don’t know where to start, you’re in the right place. Welcome home. 💕
