Questions/Topics:

  • [00:01:23] Welcome & introducing the panel
  • [0003:12] A listener who was recently diagnosed with ADHD shortly after their son was diagnosed, doesn’t feel good about their prescriber’s knowledge of ADHD treatments.  What can be done to find the right people to prescribe or to help educate the prescribers beyond the usual, “How are you feeling?”  
  • [00:11:44] Managing expectations and perspectives about communicating without needing to go into a lecture about having ADHD. 
  • [00:13:14] How do you advocate for yourself when you don’t yet know what works best for you?
  • [00:18:24] A discussion about boundary-setting and boundary violations. 
  • [00:20:40] A listener asks about their 11-year-old son and screen time. 
  • [00:30:18] “Do any of you have sensory issues?  When it comes to clothing and scents, is this an ADHD-specific thing, or could there be something else going on?” 
  • [00:36:53] A masters student asks for tools and suggestions for keeping on top of writing, getting started on assignments, and working consistently.  
  • [00:42:50] “Regarding the emotional regulation piece, how do you conceptualize where ADHD ends and the other struggles (such as bipolar or borderline or other mood disorders) begin?”
  • [00:52:22] A listener asks about the secret-sauce to Eric nearing the 500-podcast-episode milestone, and also seeks advice on starting a podcast and being terrified of not being able to do it consistently.  
  • [00:56:17] A listener talks about RSD and anxiety, and asks the panelists for advice when having a difficult time articulating their needs, especially at work.
