Next, Eric and Camille discuss the benefits of allowing our minds to wander, strategies to be attentive to what we are reading, questions to prompt our curiosity, giving ourselves space, the next steps someone can take when they’re ready to self-advocate, and addressing our internal dialogue when we’re questioning our paths.

Some of the Questions & Topics in this Episode:

  • Could ADHD coaching be helpful for couples where one person has ADHD, and the other is neurotypical? 
  • In the scenario where you come from a background where the concept of mental illness or ADHD is not necessarily “accepted”, how do you explain the guardrails or things that may be helpful for a child with ADHD to those who think, “Everyone is a little bit ADHD”? 
  • People I know don’t have access to healthcare, medical support, or therapy.  But, I don’t know what to tell them when they’re struggling and don’t have access to the above.  Do you have any advice? 
  • What can I do to manage my ADHD symptoms when I don’t have access to healthcare? 
  • Do you have any tips, tricks, tools or techniques so I can actually retain information so that I’m learning it? It’s already stuff I know, but I feel like I am just reviewing stuff and I don’t actually get anywhere.
  • As a mother of a recent college graduate who does not want to treat his ADHD, he doesn’t want help from us and is overwhelmed about his future, and it’s hard to sit back and not do anything for him.  
  • I have been treated for ADHD since I found out 20 years ago, but now, neuro health says I have no ADHD and “1000% aspergers.”  I am confused and immobilized.
