Today’s episode is our monthly Q & A session with guests Jessica McCabe and Brendan Mahan. We are taking questions from you the listener about situations that you want to talk through. It doesn’t matter if it’s personal or professional, we are here to give you our perspective and see if we can help you find some answers.
Our questions today are about being overly sensitive to rejection, how to know the difference between essential tasks versus important ones, and everything in between. We also talked about the different types of medicine and how your dose might need to be tweaked to find what works best for you.
Please note that when we discuss medications, we can only address personal experience. Anytime you have been prescribed a drug, you should reach out to your provider regarding your symptoms and experiences. Not all medications are useful for all people. There are a variety of options, and you’ll need individual help to determine which medicines are right for you.
We covered a wide range of topics, and we provide some creative takeaways no matter what stage you’re in with your diagnosis. Listen in as we not only discuss your questions but also the struggle we still have dealing with our ADHD.

Jessica mentioned a particular app she uses. Could you add that to the show notes?
Hi Amy, I hopped through the episode and I hope this is what you were looking for – the timetimer applications. https://www.timetimer.com/collections/applications I will add that to show notes. If this isn’t what you were thinking of, give me a little more detail and I’ll track it down. Thanks.
