In this episode, I'm joined by Clarissa Kristjansson, a menopause health coach and mindfulness practitioner.  Menopause & Work Clarissa worked in corporate roles for three decades and when she went through menopause her mental health suffered.  A self-described high functioning anxiety sufferer, she had managed her job. Until menopause hit.  Clarissa explained when she started to go through menopause she wasn't sleeping well, her anxiety was worse, and she no longer coped with things like she used to.  Her tipping point came early in a new role where she realized it was not the job for her.  Mindfulness & Menopause Clarissa has found mindfulness has helped her navigate the highs and lows of menopause. Women/ people can be in menopause for years, Clarissa pointed out learning to be in the moment can help accept this.  A different outlook on menopause Menopause has been a taboo topic, many have no idea what to expect when they start experiencing changes.  Clarissa says she likes to reframe the way menopause is viewed. For some people who may have been parents, they can view it as their time. Or as motivation to take a chance and change things.  Don't miss the full conversation!  Clarissa's Link https://clarissakristjansson.com/ About The Adulting With ADHD Podcast It’s not just you – we aren’t talking enough about ADHD and hormones.

In this episode, I'm joined by the host of The Shift podcast and naturopath, Katherine Maslen.  What is PCOS? Katherine explained PCOS stands for polycystic ovary syndrome and there are a number of subtypes. When she treats a patient who may have PCOS she looks at how their hormone levels fluctuate during the month.  When she treats patients she tries to look at the big picture instead of just treating the PCOS. She points out it's very treatable.   PCOS & Your Mental Health  She shares the possible link between hormone receptors and the way they influence a person's mental health.  In relation to PCOS, women can have elevated testosterone. This can lead to weight gain, insulin resistance, acne, and more.  Katherine dives into the different ways PCOS can impact a person's life and that there is a range of treatment options.  Don't miss this great conversation about how PCOS can impact your mental health.  Katherines Link https://www.theshiftclinic.com/ About The Adulting With ADHD Podcast It’s not just you – we aren’t talking enough about ADHD and hormones.

In this episode, I'm joined by fellow podcaster and ADHDEr Alisha Crossley.  Alisha reached out to me after listening to the podcast and her story resonated with me!  Adult Diagnosis of ADHD Alisha's road to diagnosis may sound too familiar to many of you. Alisha was diagnosed with anxiety when she was a teenager, after having children she developed PMDD.  During a cardiologist appointment, Alisha shared her trouble with focusing, often relied on caffeine, and was trying to juggle 3 children and a business!  Her cardiologist referred her to a psychiatrist and during the Zoom consultation, she was diagnosed with ADHD.  Genetic Factors Alisha reflected on her upbringing and her parents' struggles with addiction. She now wonders if their drug use was a way of coping with undiagnosed ADHD.  Managing PMDD and ADHD Once Alisha understood her ADHD and PMDD she was able to find a way to manage both. One tool she has found helpful is to track her cycle so she knows when her PMDD symptoms are likely to start.  Once she understood what her mood is like at different stages of her cycle, Alisha found it much easier to plan her days.  Listen to the full episode to find out more about Alisha's journey.  Alisha's Link https://alishacrossley.com/https://adhdyoga.ca/adhd-yoga- About The Adulting With ADHD Podcast It’s not just you – we aren’t talking enough about ADHD and hormones.

In this episode, I catch up with ADHDer and yoga teacher Taucha Post to talk about her pregnancy.  ADHD & Pregnancy The last time we caught up with Taucha she was trying to conceive, at the time of recording Taucha was ready to give birth. She shared how she has built her online yoga business into a community.  Taucha made the decision to stop taking her medication while she and her husband were trying to conceive. While it was challenging she found it helpful to surround herself with people who could help her with everyday tasks.  Body Doubling For ADHD Like many expecting moms, Taucha was trying to figure out how to balance being a new mom and keeping her yoga studio going. She wanted to make sure she takes care of herself, her baby, and clients.  Taucha has built a library of yoga sessions and resources, especially for people with ADHD. One idea she came up with to keep supporting ADHDers was to turn her online sessions into body doubling sessions.  If you're not familiar with body doubling, it basically means having someone with you while you do a task. Which is super helpful for people with ADHD!  It was great catching up with Taucha, don't miss the full conversation in this episode.  Taucha's Link https://adhdyoga.ca/adhd-yoga- About The Adulting With ADHD Podcast It’s not just you – we aren’t talking enough about ADHD and hormones.

In this episode, I'm joined by an anti-racism specialist and founder of ASCRIBE Educational Consulting, Sonia Lewis, to talk about racism in healthcare.  Inequality in our hospitals Sonia is a trained doula and mom so she knows a lot about childbirth. She shares how many people of color find it challenging to articulate their needs when they seek medical treatment. She recommends people articulate their needs and make sure they document anything that happens during a consultation.  What does a 'just' health system look like? Sonia describes a just health system as one where everyone has access. Equality means it does not matter what your status is, you are treated with the same level of care as everyone else.  She also believes bedside manner is key, if a healthcare professional listens to their patient it creates a far better experience. Being your own advocate and feeling like you have agency are also important components to a fair system.  Don't miss this important conversation about what we can all do to create a fairer system. Sonia shares one of her most challenging situations in a hospital and what she did to demand a good outcome.  Sonia's Link https://www.drlesliek.com/ About The Adulting With ADHD Podcast It’s not just you – we aren’t talking enough about ADHD and hormones.

In this episode, I'm joined by Anna Grunseth to answer questions many of you have been asking about transitioning and ADHD! Transitioning as an adult Anna started her transition in 2013 when she was 32. She explains she had privately identified as transgender for a number of years before she felt comfortable coming out.  She came out to a few people at a time as she continued to explore her identity. After connecting with other trans people online, Anna got help from a gender counselor. She went on hormone replacement therapy and started with her social transition.  Anna knows not everyone has an easy time when they transition. her experience was not without complications. Living in rural Wisconsin at the time, Anna was cautious.  Finding the right support when you're transitioning  Living in a small town meant Anna had to travel an hour each way to see a therapist. Although the therapist didn't specialize in gender counseling, she was experienced with LGBTQ+ issues.  The other hurdle was finding a doctor who was knowledgeable with trans patients and knew how to administer hormone therapy. Anna had to travel out of state to visit a doctor who was able to help her with this part of her transition.  ADHD and autism diagnosis as an adult  Anna has struggled with OCD since she was 11. At the time she was also assessed for ADHD but the specialist decided she didn't have it. Anna thinks one of the reasons for this is because of her gender presentation at the time and that she didn't fit into the stereotype of a hyperactive young boy.  When she was in college she started to think the specialist had got it wrong. She had trouble focusing on her coursework and difficulties with her working memory. Over the past few years, Anna started to learn more about the spectrum of experiences of people with ADHD and started to explore the possibility they had missed it when she was younger.  Following a conversation with her doctor, Anna was assessed and diagnosed with both ADHD and autism.  Check out the full episode to learn more about Anna's story and what she recommends for anyone who might be transitioning.  About The Adulting With ADHD Podcast It’s not just you – we aren’t talking enough about ADHD and hormones.

In this episode, neurodivesity coach Elizabeth Brink joins me to talk about navigating the postpartum period.  Elizabeth shared her experience of going into early menopause in a previous episode. ADHD & Postpartum Elizabeth shares she wasn't prepared for the challenges she faced during the postpartum period following the birth of her first child. Looking back, she says she had increasing anxiety, difficulty sleeping, and her cognitive functioning was impacted.  Wading through the information Moms will know there is a lot of information for new parents, one of the issues can be figuring out what is helpful and what is predatory on new parents.  Elizabeth says when you're over-tired, undernourished, and already prone to overwhelm going on Google late at night may not be the best idea! She recommends figuring out who your safe people are and leaning on them when you need support.  Sensory issues & early motherhood Many people with ADHD struggle with sensory issues, Elizabeth found once she had kids some of these were amplified. If she was under stress, making dinner, felt hot, or there was a lot of background noise she found it very hard to cope.  Prioritizing when you're a new parent with ADHD The hormonal changes we experience post-partum can be even more of a challenge with ADHD. Elizabeth explains with the hormonal shifts on top of challenging cognitive functions, a person with ADHD might experience depression and anxiety.  She points out there is nothing wrong with needing extra support during this time to make sure you have everything you need.  Check out the full episode for a great conversation on the postpartum period.  Elizabeth’s links https://twitter.com/ADHDmamacoach https://www.thrivingsistercoaching.com/ About The Adulting With ADHD Podcast It’s not just you – we aren’t talking enough about ADHD and hormones.

The "research" recommendations where disappointing and misleading. Documentaries are movies, they are NOT research. Referring to them as such fuels the tendency for doctors to dismiss their patients. Reccomend documentaries if you think they will be helpful and present good information but PLEASE do not refer to watching documentaries as doing research.

Hi Sarah, My biggest frustration would be the 1st point you discussed, people who trivialize your symptoms or condition. I was trying to explain what a day is like for me living with ADHD & one of the things I was saying is how I'll be working on something but as I'm working I'll randomly remember another thing I need to do from the day before. One of my coworkers decided to interrupt and say how she has that too and how her former co-workers used to joke about her easily getting sidetracked. I didn't say anything but I was extremely frustrated and wanted to say "ok I understand that you may have those moments but that isn't even close to what it is like for me. I have this happen every other minute as well as losing track of my current task, not going back to it later or spending way more time than necessary when I should be working on other things." Of course, I kept my mouth shut but it really hurt that no one seemed to take my condition seriously. I wasn't making excuses I always own up to things I do wrong. I was only asking for a little bit of understanding and patience. Anyway great podcast & I'm looking forward to more episodes!
