    Navigating marriage and relationships alongside our ADHD

    Navigating marriage and relationships alongside our ADHD

    "The ADHD brain is a reward and emotion-focused brain...and we feel this intensely, which can have a huge impact on our relationships...."
    There's no doubt about it, ADHD can seriously impact our relationships. Whether it shows up with our impulsivity, memory, RSD, sensory issues or emotional regulation, having ADHD within a relationship can often feel testing and difficult. Understanding, navigating and nurturing our relationships alongside ADHD can hugely benefit both partners and family dynamics.
    This week Kate chats with Melissa Orlov, the founder of https://www.adhdmarriage.com/ (ADHDmarriage.com), and author of two award-winning books on the impact of ADHD in relationships - The ADHD Effect on Marriage (2010) and The Couple's Guide to Thriving with ADHD (2014).
    A marriage consultant, Melissa helps ADHD-affected couples from around the world rebalance their relationships and learn to thrive through her seminars, consulting and books. She also teaches marriage counsellors and other professionals about effective marriage therapy for couples impacted by ADHD.
    Melissa is considered one of the foremost authorities on the topic of how ADHD impacts adult relationships.
    During this episode of The ADHD Women's Wellbeing Podcast, Kate and Melissa talk about:
    Tips to optimise your relationship with ADHD
    Managing RSD in your relationship
    Navigating your ADHD symptoms to benefit your relationship
    Learning to correctly interpret and manage ADHD to be a dependable partner
    How a non-ADHD partner can help their spouse
    Nuances of how ADHD can show up in relationships
    Healing together after an late in life ADHD diagnosis
    How your partner can relieve some of your symptoms using verbal cues
    Sharing the emotional load of ADHD
    Why and how you could be over compensating

    Advocating for your neurodiversity in the workplace

    Advocating for your neurodiversity in the workplace

    "Embracing and working with our strengths teaches us to thrive with ADHD."
    Speaking about an autism or ADHD diagnosis within the workplace can feel daunting, exposing and scary. However, when we advocate for ourselves within our work setting, we are enabling the support, care and accommodations we deserve.
    Working with - and no longer - against our brains means we can excel more in our careers without the burnout and exhaustion that typically comes with neurodiversity. Often the way we work can look different to others, but that doesn't mean it's less effective. The more we talk about this and allow different options to be implemented, the healthier, happier and more productive we feel within our work environment.
    This week’s guest, https://adhdgirls.co.uk/about-us/ (Samantha Hiew is the Director of ADHD Girls), a company founded with a social mission to empower girls and women with ADHD through effective advocacy, education and specialists’ insights.
    With a background in healthcare communications and a PhD in Cancer Research, Samantha is passionate about helping individuals with ADHD access employment and training organisations to provide the support they need to thrive in their circumstances, thereby increasing happiness and wellbeing and improving productivity.
    During this episode of The ADHD Women's Wellbeing Podcast, Kate and Samantha spoke about:
    Feeling alone after an ADHD diagnosis
    The power of anecdotal experiences
    The benefits of being around others like you and community
    Sam's autism diagnosis and her surprise
    ADHD and Autism often going hand in hand
    Needing to have a passion, fulfilment to stave off depression
    Sam's mission with ADHD diagnosis
    https://www.additudemag.com/webinar/recognition-responsive-euphoria-adhd-podcast-278/ (Recognition Responsive Euphoria) and what it is and looks like
    Navigating ADHD and Neurodiveristy in the workplace
    How employers can boost their ADHD employee's confidence
    Advocating for yourself in the workplace
    Embracing our strengths and interests to thrive with ADHD

    Channeling creativity to support our mental wellbeing

    Channeling creativity to support our mental wellbeing

    "Go back to when you were unfettered by the weight of expectations, the weight of 'shoulds'...and judgements...and remember what it felt like to feel in flow."
    This week’s guest is https://www.linkedin.com/in/jude-schweppe-775a9811/?originalSubdomain=uk (Jude Schweppe), a coach for creatives and performers, a writer, actor and co-founder of the Actors' Space in Brighton. She is passionate about the role creativity plays in supporting good mental health and wellbeing.
    Jude believes that everyone benefits enormously when they can carve out time for more creative activity and engage with this side of themselves. Not only does this time nourish us emotionally and spiritually but it also supports us in so many other aspects of our lives from work to relationships to parenting.
    During this week's episode of The ADHD Women's Wellbeing Podcast, Kate and Jude spoke about
    Tuning back into your child-self to help re-discover your creativity as an adult
    The freedom and relaxation creativity can bring
    How ADHD'ers are inherently creative
    Why we owe it to ourselves to connect to creativity
    The many different ways creativity can manifest and how it can improve the balance of life
    Why lack of creativity can starve the ADHD mind

    Money & ADHD: accepting our brains, removing shame and unlearning old beliefs

    Money and financial wellbeing can often be a shameful topic for many of us with ADHD, yet it's not discussed enough to help remove the taboo in order to help more people understand their finances better. People with ADHD are statistically more likely to go into debt, buy impulsively and find it more difficult to keep track of their finances than neurotypical people.
    This week’s guest is Tina Mathams, aka The https://www.instagram.com/theadhdaccountant/ (ADHD Accountant on Instagram), who helps ADHD entrepreneurs with their finances, and also coaches vital money management tools for ADHD brains.

    Re-writing your money story
    Letting go of your family or parent's beliefs about money
    Why managing and dealing with money can be harder with ADHD
    How dyscalculia can be a reason why managing money can feel so challenging
    The energetics of money and abundance
    Tools to help you navigate money with ease
    The importance of a strong money mindset and how to grow one!
    Money affirmations to help build new neural pathways

    Accepting and learning to regulate our big emotions

    Accepting and learning to regulate our big emotions

    This week’s guest is Dr Tamara Rosier, author of one of my favourite ADHD books, https://www.amazon.co.uk/Your-Brains-Not-Broken-Strategies/dp/B09FCDHY33/ref=sr_1_1?crid=10T3BMG1UIXMBandkeywords=your+brains+not+brokenandqid=1655983788andsprefix=brains+not+bro%2Caps%2C138andsr=8-1 (Your Brain's Not Broken).
    Tamara has been a college administrator, a professor, a leadership consultant, a high school teacher, a national public speaker, and an ADHD coach. Through those adventures, Dr Rosier has developed valuable insight into ADHD and how it affects one’s life. As founder of the ADHD Center of West Michigan, she helps individuals, parents, and families develop an understanding and learn effective skills to live with ADHD effectively. Her book, Your Brain’s Not Broken, provides strategies for navigating the powerful big emotional aspect of ADHD in a healthy way.
    During this week's episode, we spoke about
    Our big emotions, being embarrassed and the shame we have around our emotional regulation
    How to regulate our overwhelming emotions
    Prefrontal cortex 'butler' - how it calms and helps with sequencing
    Limbic centre being our anger, frustration controller
    'Living on the grid' - four quadrants, solve it grid
    Burnout from constantly being in the red zone
    Making intentional choices to help our health and stress management. Such as diary management, delegating our butler tasks and borrowing people’s butler (neuro typical) brains
    Learning not to cram and live fueled by adrenaline and cortisol
    The importance of prioritising deep cleansing sleep
    Sleep is so important for our health - ADHD symptoms are exacerbated when we don't sleep enough.

Amazing Resource!

I absolutely love this podcast. A friend recommended it after I was diagnosed with ADHD at 39 and I can’t tell you how affirming and validating these episodes are. Many episodes resonate so strongly with me and give me a new kind of self acceptance. Thank you so much, Kate!

sotislpn ,

Finally someone gets it!

Having ADHD all my life but struggled with so many issues because my brain works differently. I just found this podcast and have enjoyed learning and feeling I’m not as alone as I thought. I was diagnosed early in my life simply because my mom was diligent. In the late 1970’s/early 1980’s ADHD was not a common diagnosis and rarely a diagnosis given to girls. But the only help I got was medication. As an adult I started learning more about behavioral changes and technology that helps me function and be productive. Thank you for your podcast and resource you offer.

Blue Kansas ,

Solutions-oriented and adult-centric

I love this podcast, which filled a massive self-care sized hole that used to exist in the ADHD podcast universe. This podcast is focused on helping women with late diagnoses deploy strategies to ameliorate neurodivergence-driven symptoms we used to think were personal failings. Mindblowing in the best possible way. I get a little hit of dopamine every time I see a new episode post! Thank you.
