Here’s my list of what I’m exploring this week.



What I Said

Wow- just wow-

I was a guest on ADHD Coach Brooke Schnittman’s podcast, SuccessFULL with ADHD, and we had quite the conversation about my own ADHD journey, focusing on my later in life ADHD diagnosis, how that came about from learning how to manage my younger daughter’s ADHD (an unusual presentation), and my recent diagnosis of Sensory Processing Disorder.

It was a lively chat about living with hypersensitivities, plus a great discussion on creativity, plus the relationship between ADHD and trauma, and an inside look into my early life and how that affected me as an adult. I can’t say I’ve ever had such a personal, in-depth interview before!

You can listen to our conversation- and boy, is she a great host with great insights and questions- at:

What I Recommend

To-Do Checklist Task Board (2)

How can you not like this? The checklist task board comes with removable and replaceable paper, so you can personalize it to fit your needs. 10 sliding buttons on smooth tracks. It has a small hole, allowing it to be hung on the wall, or attached to the fridge and virtually anywhere else with its double-sided tape.                     

Check it out HERE.
