ADHD and Friendship

ADHD and Friendship

2021-03-2346:15

It can be very hard for ADHDers to make and keep friends. Why? And what can we do about it? On today's episode I have my ADHD BFF Verity Garvey here to chat with me about ALL the friendship things: Why making friends was hard for us when we were kids, and how we are navigating friendships now as adults. Most importantly, we discuss self-acceptance and the significance of knowing what you bring to the table in a friendship.

It's hard to have ADHD. We are so often misunderstood and rejected by our peer groups. Dr. Ned Hallowell says that fellowship is the safest and most effective drug that we have. If you don't have a group of like-minded ADHD adults, I hope by the end of this episode you will be inspired to find one. Dr. Ned Hallowell's Book: Delivered from Distraction: Getting the Most out of Life with Attention Deficit Disorder Research Study: The Importance of Social Contextual Factors in Peer Relationships of Children with ADHD Community Groups: Adda Virtual Support Groups Chadd's Adult ADHD Community Support Forum ADDitude - ADHD Support Group | Facebook www.ihaveadhd.com for more adult ADHD resources.

Scaffolding is a system, structure, or framework of SUPPORT. Dr. Russell Barkley says that humans of ADHD must have a scaffolding of support around them if they're going to succeed, and I agree with him 100%. In this episode you'll learn what a scaffolding is, why we resist it, and how it can help us get the results we've always wanted. www.ihaveadhd.com for more adult ADHD resources.

Find The Gold Where You Are

In this episode, my client Karima speaks of her experience as a black girl growing up in an all-white village in France; how she was labeled a problem child from a very early age, how she dealt with both racial bias and ADHD bias, and how an ADHD diagnosis later in life has helped her to understand herself and thrive. Karima encourages all of us to FIND THE GOLD WHERE WE ARE, and it's so amazing.    Inger Shaye Colzie is the ADHD coach I highlighted on this episode: Visit https://ingershaye.com or check her out on Instagram @ingershaye  www.ihaveadhd.com for more adult ADHD resources.

“…it is out of this space (failure) that the real genuine communication with other people starts to happen, because it’s a very unguarded, wide-open space where you look out your eyes – unless you are getting into the blaming yourself or blaming others – you can go beyond the blame and just feel the bleedingness of it, the raw-meat quality of it”-Pema Chodron Fail Fail Again Fail Better

I love your podcast! It's like a goldmine of useful info. I also love how you cannot help yourself from externalising those thoughts that come up. Mega cute :)
