I resonate so much with the emotions. I cry with every emotion. My son has a teddy bear picnic Thursday that I don't want to attend because I'll cry like a baby because I'll be excited/proud.

I tend to listen to music when trying to sleep so my mind has something to focus on and it helps me sleep so much more
Laura Hughes
57:11
That's a great idea. I like the sleep stories to help me sleep.

And the guilt of not finishing a project is real
Laura Hughes

List can help, especially when you get to finally cross it off.
Katharine Gutowski
58:26
Lists are very helpful I just forget to make them 😂
Lisa Kayfish
59:08
I like to call the negative aspects of ADHD "Fun Facts"....its a characteristic of it, its those characteristics where folks with ADHD need to work a little harder at and give more lovin'
Lindsay’s iPhone

Or the feeling of being wound up and in a race but never feeling accomplished is hard
Laura Hughes
01:00:36
I like the fun fact phrase. It's a great outlook!

Sadly, I have multiple lists spread throughout my house, car, and multiple lists on my phone. (To-do, shopping, Important, Urgent, Very Urgent, Must Do Immediately)😖
Laura Hughes
01:03:14
You need 'one list to rule them all' - sorry bad joke
Lisa Kayfish
01:03:16
Rephrasing what are deemed to be "negative" is not helpful for me and not a confidence booster. For tasks, I like to use the "Focus Keeper" app it breaks tasks into bits of time and breaks.

Pomodoro Technique
Laura Hughes

Laura Hughes

I always enjoy when people have amazing random facts.

do you have any suggestions with making friends? my son has too many stipulations (defense mechanism) before he will make new friendships.

The doorbell was driving me nuts
Crystal Goodon
01:27:59
These videos are great. I have a hard time understanding things like how my son can forget to lock the door or turn the lights off before he leaves for school in the morning. Little things like that. I see more now how this happens.

How does an adult get a diagnosis?
Laura Hughes

You can raise hand in the emotion area and we can unmute you if you like.
