Omg this is great
I was diagnosed with adhd at age 10, and im still struggling with it and this is helping with, well everything. It’s just very helpful!
Just discovered this podcast & so grateful I did!
I was just diagnosed with inattentive ADHD this past fall at age 35, and my 8 year old son was diagnosed with hyperactive/inattentive ADHD last month, so I have been doing alllll the research (obviously! 😜), hired a coach, etc. In all of that, I found your podcast & subscribed, and was able to listen to my first episode while on a long drive this morning. As I listened to Dr. Kalaki describe her life and her struggles with undiagnosed, then diagnosed ADHD, while still affirming herself and her talents & strengths, I found myself flush with simultaneous grief for years of feeling like a failure & struggling to do what felt like the most menial of tasks, and sheer joy & relief at recognizing myself in someone else's life & struggle. I immediately listened to the episode before that, about not being able to "fix" ADHD, and began to just sob (unfortunately, it was also pouring rain outside- so it was raining from the sky AND from my eyes, which I wouldn't recommend while driving, but I made it to my destination safely!). Every word that Nikki and Pete spoke dove straight into my hungry heart & nestled there, affirming that I am not alone, that I am not broken, that my struggles will not be fixed by the mandate of "just be more organized", that I am not a crappy parent, that I am not lazy. I am beginning to feel like I have so much more agency in my life simply by learning more about how this neuro-diverse brain of mine works, and I'm starting to feel more & more equipped to help, encourage & support my son with his own ADHD. Thank you to Nikki & Pete for this incredible podcast, so full of resources & empathy... I'm so grateful I found you! :)
Help for both generations!
My son and I both have ADHD. I typically listen to this podcast for tips on coping with my own ADHD. However, this podcast just proved to be useful for my son! He is in 2nd grade and struggling with reading and reading comprehension, even though he has a photographic memory. While listening to the episode where someone talked about living with undiagnosed ADHD, she described a coping mechanism I used to do when I was diagnosed! She mentioned reading the questions before reading a text, and it clicked in my head that this might be his problem! Thank you so much for this podcast and all of the wonderful guests!!
