Navigating a Neurotypical World with a Neurodivergent Mind. Talking to people about the pitfalls and triumphs of being neurodivergent in their careers, passions, and life.

I'm Stefan Glazer, diagnosed with severe inattentive ADHD and GAD at 39. I grew up thinking I was lazy, didn't try hard enough, or even that I was "stupid". However, it was the diagnosis that was a turning point in my life and led me down a path of self re-discovery. I created tools that worked for me in my lifetime, refining them to work with my mind.

    It's okay to take a break. See you all soon.

    It's okay to take a break. See you all soon.

    Just as I've written about it in my articles on Medium. I want to remind everyone it's okay to take a break and refocus on what you're doing. I looked to return late spring early summer 2024. Thank you all for listening and always remember you're not alone.

    This episode comes to you from the side of the Sandia mountains, at almost 9,000 ft, semi out of breath, with nothing but love and I care for you all.

    Thank you and see you soon!

    Bye for now.

    Executive Function - Part 3 - Task Initiation

    This is a series on Executive Function that I have recorded. I am taking a bit of each, piece by piece, explaining it, and getting you some tips on how to navigate it.

    This will be an ongoing mini-series in the midst of doing all the other episodes that I have created.

    Once I get through the first few episodes of this series, we'll have regular guests come back and tell their stories.

    I just needed to create this to get more people aware of the issues we face with Executive Function.

    Ep. 61 - Dr. Rita Louise - "Dang! It Was Me All Along?"

    Ep. 61 - Dr. Rita Louise - "Dang! It Was Me All Along?"

    It was my honor to have Dr. Rita Louise on the podcast today. I was excited for a few reasons. I had originally listened to her on George Noory's Coast to Coast AM and seen her on Gaia TV!


    Takeaways


    Practicing mindfulness and breathwork can help cultivate inner peace and happiness.
    Neurodivergent individuals may face challenges such as dyslexia and dyscalculia, but these differences do not define their worth or abilities.
    It is important to create a supportive and inclusive environment for neurodivergent individuals, understanding and accepting their unique minds.
    Pronunciation challenges can be overcome by seeking assistance and finding alternative ways to communicate effectively. Object blindness is a phenomenon associated with ADHD, where individuals have difficulty perceiving or finding objects that are right in front of them.
    Neurodivergent individuals often develop their own coping skills and tend to be creative.
    Psychic abilities can be discovered and developed through practice and awareness.
    Everyone has intuitive moments, and paying attention to them can lead to positive outcomes.
    No one is alone in their struggles, and support is available.



    A little about Dr. Rita Louise:


    “Fran Dresher’s delivery without the whine”, is how one audience member put Dr. Rita Louise’s frank, funny yet honest approach. Dr. Rita Louise is the Founder of the Institute Of Applied Energetics and former host of Just Energy Radio. She is the author of the books The Dysfunctional Dance Of The Empath And Narcissist, Stepping Out Of Eden, ET Chronicles: What Myth And Legend Have To Say About Human Origin, Avoiding The Cosmic 2X4, Dark Angels: An Insider’s Guide To Ghosts, Spirits & Attached Entities and The Power Within: A Psychic Healing Primer as well as hundreds of articles that have been published worldwide. Dr. Rita has appeared on film, radio, television and has spoken at conferences around the world covering topics such as health and healing, relationships, ghosts, intuition, ancient mysteries and the paranormal.

    Be sure to check out her latest book: "Dang! It Was Me All Along?"

Eye Opening

I dived into podcast from a recommendation. The episodes are extremely eye-opening and I have found that I’ve learned a lot through them. Thanks Stefan!

Everything's Messy Podcast ,

This!

As someone who is married to one with ADHD and has children on the spectrum, this is so helpful. First it allows me to see into the future of what it might look like for them and also how I can help and understand all they walk through. Great podcast!
