Hello, ADHD World! It’s been a while… As you may know, we here at The ADD Management Group took an all-too-short break in the last few months to welcome twins into our family! But things didn’t exactly go as planned… Back in October, we experienced an emergency situation on the last day of the 2013 […]

Starting to feel sluggish and a little blue? Don’t fret, it’s normal. Especially if you’re an adult with ADHD. If you know me well, then you no doubt know that my favorite season is spring. Come April, I’m as happy as can be! The weather warms up, there’s lots of sun, and things are alive […]

Does the concept of “time management” makes your stomach clench? If so, you’re not alone! Almost every adult with ADHD has difficulty with time–whether it’s meeting deadlines, showing up on time for an appointment, or just getting through the daily to-do’s. I recently had a podcast chat with Senior Certified ADHD Coach and Bonnie Mincu […]


Summer Projects

Is it really September already? Summers seem to go by quicker and quicker, don’t they? Every year around this time, I hear from a number of adults with ADHD who are stressing out and not enjoying the last weeks of summer. They’re frustrated and annoyed with themselves because summer is almost over and they haven’t […]


PlayDHD

When Kirsten Milliken of PlayDHD asked me to join her and her co-host Stacey Turis for an episode of their video series, I was instantly intrigued. These fabulous ADHD ladies host fun and lively video discussion on a variety of topics under the umbrella of play and ADHD. (Hence, PlayDHD.) Kirsten asked me what I […]

So… how many times have you come up with the most brilliant idea ever while you were in the shower, only to forget it by the time you were dry? It’s a common complaint that I hear from ADHD clients, and I can relate: I can’t shut my mind off when I’m in the shower. […]


Too many ideas!

If you’re an adult with ADHD, then chances are that at some point in your life, you’ve felt that you’re not “living up to your potential.” What a lousy way to feel about yourself! This judgment often manifests itself when you take stock of all the great ideas you’ve had that have never gone anywhere, […]


ADHD-radio

I recently joined Tara McGillicuddy on ADHD Support Talk Radio for a discussion on Attitude, Mindset, and Adult ADHD. It’s always fun to talk with my old friend Tara and discuss the topics that we, as veteran ADHD coaches, think are most important for adults who are managing ADHD. In this show, Tara and I […]


ADHD Feeling Defeated

When I posed a question recently about where in life a negative mindset challenges you most, I got some similar answers. Eileen said: A negative mindset challenges my ability to think I am capable. And Shawn added: I am generally a very positive person, at least on the outside. Inside I have spent years aware […]


mindset

Lately I’ve been thinking a lot about mindset, and how it affects our ability to manage not just our ADHD, but our lives in general. Think about the people in your life… do you know anyone who is a “perpetual victim”? Perpetual victims tend to complain all the time, and they blame other people for […]
