Here’s my list of what I’m exploring this week.
What I’ve Been Reading
As I finish up the book, Migraine, another book by Oliver Stone (not recommended unless you’re interested in the deep history of migraines and have an extensive understanding of medical terms), I heard about a fairly new book that will be my next read: Divergent Mind: Thriving in a World That Wasn’t Designed for You? . The book covers sensitivities women experience- women with ADHD, Autism, Sensory Processing Disorder, and more.
“The book de-pathologizes those of us who most profoundly and intensely think and feel the world around us.” – Mary Pipher.

What I’ve Been Listening To
Looking for nature sounds? Or other beautiful sound landscapes to calm you down or block out noises as you hunker down, working from home with children running wild?
Check out myNoise.net.There are hundreds of different noise generators available for free listening that you can adjust to your sound comfort level. What I really like about myNoise is that once I calibrate the soundscape to my liking, I can create a custom URL that I can save and go back to. Here’s one of my favorites: Rain on a tent.
What I’ve Been Up To
I have a few slots open for online consultations via Zoom. These have become super popular, so if you’re looking to work with me one-on-one, grab an appointment. We meet live on Zoom (or you can request email consultations instead)

What I’m Saying
Come listen to my CHADD podcast: Guidance for Uncertain Times: Mothers and ADHD – Permit Yourself to Breathe. I talk about the special challenges moms with ADHD face during this pandemic; working from home, supporting your child with virtual learning, and much more.

What Sari Solden is Saying
Two of my favorite ADHD experts! Sari was a recent guest on Dr. Ned Hallowell’s podcast series, “Distraction.” Listen to her talk about “How Estrogen and Brain Shame Affect Women with ADHD”, one of my favorite topics.

Upset with yourself because even with all this time stuck at home, you still can’t get yourself to mop the floor?
