Welcome to The ADHD Manual!

Living with ADHD in a world built for neurotypicals (people with the most common brains) is like trying to follow an IKEA assembly manual for our Hot Wheels race car track pieces.

Or we could toss the manual and write our own.

Episode 54 is live! Today I’m talking housing accommodations. And by “talking” I mean “giving a Powerpoint presentation” and by “housing accommodations” I mean the quirks of my living space that make my house more ADHD friendly, and some more information on Emotional Support Animals.

Episode 51 is live! If you’re like me, interoception (sensing and interpreting internal signals) can be hard. So I broke down some basic needs and the subtle/not-so-subtle ways my body communicates them.
