The ADHD Manual: How to survive with a colorful brain in a black and white world. Living with ADHD in a world built for neurotypicals (people with the most common brains) is like trying to follow an IKEA assembly manual for our Hot Wheels race car track pieces. We could toss this rocket launcher and buy crappy plastic pins. Or we could toss the manual and write our own.

This podcast truly changed my life. It brought me from believing there was something different about me that I couldn’t explain to putting it into perspective that I have adhd. Every time I listen I think thank god, I thought I was the only one like this! It has helped me to feel more accepting of myself and understand my adhd better.

I love Abby

Finally a podcast about ADHD that isn’t overstimulating or overwhelming. I feel like I’m just hanging back with my super cool therapist friend who also happens to have ADHD and totally gets me.
