5 Warning Signs That Could Be Your Tipping Point

Recently, I’ve noticed a pattern in my clients that I call the “tipping point”. The “tipping point” is basically a time in people’s lives when, for various reasons, the strategies they have been using to compensate for their ADHD challenges no longer seem to be working. This “tipping point” is often experienced along with feelings of overwhelm and chaos. Up until a “tipping point,” people have been able to balance known or unknown challenges with ADHD with strategies they may not have even realized they were using. Up until the “tipping point”, they had been able to adapt and cope well with their symptoms, even going as far as being under the radar for an official diagnosis of ADHD (in other words their symptoms were not interfering with their functioning). But for some reason a life change – it could be a job promotion, relationship change, a school change, or any myriad of different things – renders the current strategies ineffective and over time there is a sense that things are no longer “going well” and in fact, life seems to be falling apart in a big way…

My Brain’s ‘Executive Function’ Calls Me Twice A Week

This is going to be one of those stories where I admit to resisting something that turned out to do me a world of good. Dunno if that’s a ‘guy thing’, or an ‘ADHD thing’, or a ‘Rick thing.’

But it’s going to take me a minute or two to get there. Stay with me! (Or skip to the end, then come back and read chunks in a random order until it makes sense. Hey, it’s your ADHD, do what works for you.)

So, as you well know, there is a lot of confusion about ADHD. Some people don’t believe ADHD exists.

Her FAST MIND

Perhaps the most under-served segment of the ADHD population are adult women. So often, their ADHD is overlooked, not on anyone’s radar, or misdiagnosed as Anxiety or Depression. Our friend, Zoë Kessler, author of ADHD According to Zoë kept telling me, “YOU HAVE TO HAVE DR. TIM BILKEY DO A WEBINAR WITH YOU! He has developed some amazing stuff around women with ADHD!” Being a woman with ADHD, I trusted her opinion…

Emotional Aspects of Getting Stuck and Unstuck with ADHD

On May 5th we welcome a legend in the world of ADHD. You may already know of Dr. Thomas Brown directly if your doctor used one of the ‘Brown Rating Scales’ while diagnosing you, or your child. After reading his latest book, Smart But Stuck, I knew we have to talk with him about ADHD & Emotion. Rather than ask Dr. Brown to do a guest blog, we suggested we simply post the introduction to the book, because it not only outlines what the book is about, it very neatly and concisely outlines a huge issue, one that we’ll delve into on May 5th…

Me?…A.D.H.D.?…O.M.G.!!!

Last year we took a poll during one of our webinars. We asked: “What are the biggest issues you want us to address?” Number one? Procrastination. No surprise. And we’ve been working on a Procrastination video for a while now. (Insert your own procrastination joke here.) Second issue? The tornado of emotions that erupt when you, or a loved one, receives the ADHD diagnosis. We’ve been asking a lot of experts about this furious funnel of feelings that can send an already racing mind into a tailspin. And, man oh man, do we have some stories to tell…
