202: Women and ADHD with Linda Roggli

202: Women and ADHD with Linda Roggli

This Week’s Episode:

Linda Roggli joins me on this week’s episode. This is Linda’s third appearance on the podcast.  She is a professional certified coach, award-winning author, founder of the ADD Diva Network, and co-founder of the ADHD Women’s Palooza, which is just around the corner.  Linda is an expert in later-life ADHD. Linda is a popular speaker at national and international conferences and has coached 100s of women.

In this conversation, you will hear Linda share the role that estrogen plays in ADHD behavior.  This is something that a lot of OB GYNs don’t know about.  She also shares information on her observational study that you can participate in.  This could be an awakening and explain as much as an ADHD diagnosis.

Linda also talks about the upcoming ADHD Women’s Palooza conference.  This leads to a discussion on the importance of connecting with other people.  Linda explains how Women’s Palooza offers the opportunity to connect and speak with others.

  1. Planned Parenthood’s Spot On app may be the best period tracking app out there. Not only can you track your mood, activity, assorted symptoms, and, of course, the flow, but it is also the only app I’ve encountered that tailors your experience based on the kind of birth control you use.

    So, for me, since I don’t take a pill but have a copper IUD instead, it doesn’t even bother giving me a pill reminder because I don’t need it. I’m sure it has a lot of other cool functions but I keep forgetting to check it out. 🙂
