261: February 2019 Q&A

This episode is the recording of February’s live Q&A.  The questions answered in this episode were submitted by listeners of this podcast, both ahead of time and live.  Brendan Mahan once again joins me on this Q&A.

This week, we had several listeners join us on the podcast.  You will hear us talk with a couple of people who were diagnosed later, and are working through things like finding helpful therapists and being ready for coaching.  

You can listen to our live Q&A sessions on the second Tuesday of every month at 1:30 pm Eastern.  Join Brendan Mahan and me as we answer your questions live. You can register at http://ADHDreWired.com/events.
