Hey, TotallyADD Patrons!
Social Distancing got you down?
Need to talk, rant, share, dish, or just connect?
These are challenging times and being isolated makes it worse. I know a big benefit of being a patron is the amazing community of peers who 'get it.'
So, let's get together online and catch up with each other.
I have scheduled a couple of bonus Live Chats where we can stay connected:
Tuesday, March 31th, at 2 pm Eastern, 11 am Pacific
Monday, April 6th, at 8 pm Eastern, 5 pm Pacific
It's always great to check in, hear familiar voices, see friendly faces, and hear from fellow patrons around the world.
How are you doing? What are you challenges? What are your fears? How are you managing?
If you want to share a poem, song, or story, by all means do!
P.S. Usually our Live Chats run 55 minutes, but on these chats we can go longer.
ADHD & Finances
with Rick Webster from Rena-fi
Monday, April 27
8 pm Eastern, 5 pm Pacific
Did you know that people with ADHD earn an average of 25% less income over the course of a lifetime? Then there's the "ADHD tax!"... we pay dramatically more late fees, penalties, and traffic tickets than neuro-typicals.
Many of us struggle to climb the career ladder. But this isn't just a work thing.
Financial stress impacts our relationships, our happiness and our health. Did you know that financial stress shortens life expectancy by 10 - 12 years? Some say it's the number one health threat in the United States.
Even before the Corona virus, 15% of the population were living with severe financial stress. Russell Barkley puts that number at 61% of the ADHD population.
It doesn't have to be that way. Rick Webster from Reni-fi believes you can live the life you want to live by putting financial stress in the rear view mirror.
This is a topic so many Patrons have been requesting. I think it's especially timely. Hope to see you there.
Are you raising a bright child with learning, social, emotional, and/or behavioural challenges? If so, we recommend the Bright & Quirky Child Online Summit.
The summit runs March 12-16 and includes many experts like: Stephen Porges PhD, TIna Payne Bryson PhD, Ross Greene PhD, Mona Delahooke PhD, Stuart Shanker DPhil, Debbie Reber, Seth Perler, Linda Silverman PhD, Dan Peters PhD, Susan Baum PhD and many more.
TotallyADD is an affiliate of this event and is not running the event.
It's a special "Leap Year" edition of the Palooza running February 24-29, 2020
One of the topics this Palooza will cover is a tricky path that we all have to navigate, and universally seem to struggle with. Should you tell anyone about your ADHD, and if so, who can you confide in? TotallyADD's Rick Green will be answering these questions and more in his presentation on Friday, February 28th.

When you are diagnosed with ADHD for the first time in adulthood, there is a lot of history to work through. You question why some things went one way, and why others went another. And even, why some things didn't "go" at all.
I get it. For me, I didn't realize I had symptoms of ADHD until I was late into my twenties.
I didn't know why:
I could do things that were "hard", but not things that were "easy" (or seemed easy to others).
I couldn't do my work until the very last minute (when I was out of time).
I often focused on the needs of others before my own (even if it was detrimental to me).
I put unnecessary stress on myself and those around me when it came to deadlines.
By learning about ADHD and me,
I have become a happier person.
I have found a more peaceful way to be.
I know first hand the power of understanding your unique brain style.
In order to get there, though, I had to go backwards before I could go forwards. I had to learn more about me from a long time ago, in order to define my authentic self now.
Do I have you interested? Take 12 minutes to yourself. Hit a coffee shop, or find a spot where you feel relaxed and able to focus. Maybe even go for a walk.
Grab a pen and paper or open the notes section in your phone...
Write a letter to yourself at a pivotal point in your past.
Perhaps you are eight years old and starting to have challenges in school or heading off to university, or beginning a new stage in your career. Speak to your past self with an awareness of what you now know, and think about what it would have meant to know this information then. Be gentle. The goal here is to find clues about your true self, outside of ADHD, that will guide you along your journey.
What did your past self teach you about your "now" self?
Perhaps you can make peace with hurts of the past, or maybe there is someone you want to talk to, in order to feel better. Do this process your way.
