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

Where You Can Find Me: Dr. Ned Hallowell’s Podcast

I was a recent guest on Dr. Ned Hallowell’s Podcast: Wonderful World of Different: ADHD and Beyond, where we talked about – of course- women with ADHD. Ned is a kind friend and has been one of the hugest influences, supporters, presenters, writers, on all things ADHD. His newest book, ADHD 2.0, is a must read.

Find out where you can join over 36,000 other women with ADHD at my Facebook page (see below). You’ll connect, laugh, maybe even cry, when you find others you can talk to who, like you and me, live and breathe ADHD.

What I Said

A while back, I gave a Q/A on my publisher’s (New Harbinger Publications) website: The Female Side of ADHD.

What I’m Excited About

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

Where can I find a professional in my area who can help me?

I’ve researched the handful of ADHD directories online and decided that I’m going to develop the best one, ever. One that is user friendly. One that doesn’t frustrate you or make your eyes hurt. One that is comprehensive, where you can find therapists, doctors, coaches, educators, clinics, etc. One that is up to date, and much more.

We’re almost ready to launch, but if you are a professional or have a service or product and would like to be first in line or want to know more it, email me at support@addconsults.com.

ADHD-Friendly Recipe

Spaghetti With Fried Eggs
Serves 2-3

Note from Terry: This is a great last minute, no time to shop, prepare or cook meal.


  • Salt
  • ½ pound thin spaghetti
  • 6 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil or lard
  • 2 large cloves garlic, lightly smashed and peeled
  • 4 eggs
  •  Freshly ground black pepper
  •  Freshly grated Parmesan or pecorino cheese, optional


  1. Bring a pot of salted water to the boil. Start the sauce in the next step, and start cooking the pasta when the water boils.
  2. Combine garlic and 4 tablespoons of the oil in a small skillet over medium-low heat. Cook the garlic, pressing it into the oil occasionally to release its flavor; it should barely color on both sides. Remove the garlic, and add the remaining oil.
  3. Fry the eggs gently in the oil, until the whites are just about set and the yolks still quite runny. Drain the pasta, and toss with the eggs and oil, breaking up the whites as you do. (The eggs will finish cooking in the heat of the pasta.) Season to taste, and serve immediately, with cheese if you like.

What I Just Got to Organize a Mess of Computer Cords

I hate hate hate the zillions of cords under my work desk. I purchased this a while back and love it- just stash all the cords into the box and plug them in via the slots. Yay!
