    Living With ADHD Does Not Make You Broken

    Living With ADHD Does Not Make You Broken

    Because we struggle with things that seem "easy" for most people, those of us with ADHD tend to develop the belief over time that there is something inherently wrong with us. Taking it a step further, we often try to hide our differences by bending over backwards to blend in with the neurotypical majority. Today, Shelly and Cam ask our listeners to question the limiting belief that having ADHD makes us broken; and instead to consider how owning both your strengths and challenges as an adult with ADHD empowers you to adapt to methods that work for you and honor the fact that your needs are different.

    Stepping Out of the "I'm Not Doing This Right" Mindset

    Stepping Out of the "I'm Not Doing This Right" Mindset

    Because our brains are wired differently than the neurotypical majority, those of us with ADHD can often fall into the trap of believing that we are not doing things right. Today, Cam and Shelly use client examples to demonstrate how the "I'm not doing this right" mindset can show up in friendships and work relationships. We then discuss how these clients were able to shift their perspective from a a place of inferiority to one of different, but equal.

    Letting it Be Easy with ADHD

    Letting it Be Easy with ADHD

    Today, Cam and Shelly discuss a guiding philosophy that Shelly lives by in her own life and uses frequently with clients: Let It Be Easy. We discuss how we as adults with ADHD often get in our own way, over-complicating problems or approaching them from the wrong angle. We then give examples of how we and our clients have used this philosophy to find the "let it be easy" approach and how listeners can apply this philosophy to their own challenges.

ADHD Served Up in Brilliant Chewy Chunks

Cam and Shelly are truly smart, savvy and unique. They've spent their lives learning about their own ADHD idiosyncracies. They share how they've come this far with challenges, failures and huge wins. They talk about work, home, marriage, parenting and their careers. They work together to provide a fact-filled, metaphor-rich, deep-dive into the neuroscience and silly blindspots which provide some of the most interesting and frustrating aspects of ADHD. If you're new to really 'learning' about the paradox of how your adhd shows up, or if someone in your world has it (diagnosed or not), you must listen to this podcast! Start at the top, and grab a notebook. You'll not only get a real-world look behind the scenes of their personal and professional lives, but like me, you'll grow to cherish their transparency, authenticity, foibles and great successes. Whole-hearted thanks to Cam and Shelly for making this podcast happen!

A positive approach to finding strengths and managing weaknesses with ADHD

If you live with ADHD and are generally successful, or have a “good” in career and/or life, then I believe you will find great relatability here. Cam and Shelly present a view that is not the “flailing, can’t figure out life” ADHD, but they come from the approach of “I have many great strengths and attributes my ADHD creates in me, and I want to learn how to manage the downside risks and challenges”.

Cam and Shelly have great interactions. Lots of content here. Many relatable insights.

My people...

When I heard Cameron say, “whack-a-mole” I knew Shelly and Cameron were my people. I’m binge listening over and over, but the creating change episode was like 😮, they know me. I love that they’re transparent that they’re right here in the struggle with us.
