Here’s my list of what I’m exploring this week.
What I Said
PsychCentral.com interviewed me and my friend/colleague, Dr. Stephanie Sarkis for a piece titled: 8 Strategies for Navigating Common Conversation Stumbles in ADHD.
What I Learned
I am always looking for ways to deal with my over-flow of computer files, photos, etc. You, too?
Check out this article: 3 Ways to Reduce Digital Clutter on your PC or Mac.
What I’m Listening To
The ADHD Awareness Expo
My friend and colleague, Tara McGillicuddy, does it again! She is hosting the 13th (yes, 13 years!) ADHD Awareness Expo to celebrate ADHD Awareness Month.
She has been an important voice in the ADHD world for many years. As usual, she is having some of your favorite speakers present interesting and helpful topics. Plus lots more online activities.

What I Recommend to my Clients
A Radical Guide for Women with ADHD: Embrace Neurodiversity,
Live Boldly, and Break Through Barriers
By Sari Solden, MS, and Michelle Frank, PsyD
Oh my. This book needs to be on your bookshelf. You can read my Editorial Review on Amazon, but let me give you a hint, here:
Sari has been outspoken for years on why we women with ADHD need to learn to embrace our ADHD, shed the shame, and go with our strengths.
She and Michelle Frank often say: The only things that need to be fixed are dogs and furniture. It sounds funny, but it’s so true. We don’t need to be fixed!
I’ve been lucky to have worked with Sari on many projects over the years and even luckier to call her my mentor.
Take a second right now and head over to Amazon to order this incredibly helpful book.

I get a lot of emails and guess what the #1 question I get is:
