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 might like to talk about, and I didn’t have to think about it for very long before I suggested the topic of embracing changing interests.
As an adult with ADHD, I find myself continually obsessed with a new hobby or interest, only to burn out on it after a short while and move onto something else. I’ve learned to embrace this quirk, and I’m often encouraging other ADHDers to embrace it, as well. So Kirsten, Stacey, and I had a great discussion on this topic!
Check out the video to:
- Discover why so many ADHDers find themselves continually obsessed with new interests
- Find out when it’s okay, and when it’s NOT okay, not to follow through with something that interests you
- Laugh along with Kirsten, Stacey, and I as we reveal our own changing interests and obsessions
- Also, you get to see me looking like a sleepy raccoon. Clearly, I need better lighting in this office!
