Join the ADHD reWired Podcast Family every second Tuesday of the month for a Live Q&A! Listen in on today’s episode as the ADHD reWired panelists answer your ADHD-related questions! In this episode, we cover topics like dealing with shame and guilt, feedback from employers, partnerships, pet-care, mind-wandering, and more! (Recorded on October 12th / 2021)

  • [00:03:06] – How do you deal with feedback from bosses that you don’t want to disclose your ADHD to?
  • [00:17:15] – As the neurotypical partner in the relationship, what is it that I can do best to help my ADHD partner feel productive and useful being a stay-at-home dad?

  • [01:01:00] – New to the diagnosis, the meds help with energy and focus, but when my ADHD kids meltdown, it sends my anxiety through the ceiling. Any suggestions?

  • [01:03:29] – I am 70 and finally have gotten the ADHD diagnosis. The shame I am filled with is remembering how my parents treated me as a child. My family has now put me to the side […] but…
  • [01:04:37] – ADHD reWired’s King of Dad-Jokes gives us a Moment of Dad…
