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


What I’m Reading

Every so often, I’ll Google my name. Usually, it’s to find articles I’d written and then lost, but today I found one and it’s…about me! So if you’re curious about me and my work- how I got into the world of ADHD and why-  feel free to check out: The Queen of Distraction: Building Community for Women with ADHD.

 What I’m Watching

(ADHD-Friendly Recipe) 

3-ingredient Teriyaki Chicken

Ingredients for 4 servings

  • 1 cup soy sauce
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  1. Sear the chicken thighs evenly in a pan, then flip.
  2. Add the soy sauce and brown sugar, stirring and bringing to a boil.
  3. Stir until the sauce has reduced and evenly glazes the chicken.
