It was a slap in the face getting diagnosed with ADHD in my mid-30s. It was a sucker punch to learn how hormones relate to ADHD at nearly 40. I'm an ex-journalist who knows how to work Audacity. It just made sense.
The Adulting With ADHD Podcast aims to unpack all the things that weren't covered in that glossy brochure from the doctor's office ... there's a lot of nuance that can't fit on a trifold! I talk to experts and patients about how ADHD relates to hormones, trauma, food/eating, and more.
ADHD and Emotional Dysregulation

Thank you, Sarah Snyder for creating such an informative podcast and also one that is so well organized into topics/seasons! I was grateful to be interviewed during the ADHD
Thank you so much for talking about hormones and ADHD.
I live in a mental health desert. What few psychiatrists there are have no openings, have no experience with ADHD, don’t believe adults have ADHD, or what they do know they read in the 80’s. ADHD, menopause and hormones are far above their heads.
Thank you for talking about this. Even a lot of ADHD experts I read or listen to webinars are having a hard time with this. Seems like all the male experts say there is no link with hormones. I’ve heard several women experts acknowledge the link, medication affects, and increased ADHD symptoms.
Oh how I wished I lived near knowledgeable mental health providers and a friends support group with other Adhd’ers so I can relax and talk to others who understand. I am so isolated.
I just wanted to take a moment and say thank you for creating such an impactful podcast! I believe that we all have a voice that deserves to be heard. Thank you for putting this into the world! BE UNBROKEN! @MichaelUnbroken
