Description

Hellloooo gorgeous ADHD besties!

On today's show:

• Listener question: Tara and Grace share their ADHD late-diagnosis stories. They explain how they first learned about ADHD, why Tara got diagnosed twice almost a decade apart, stimulant meds and struggling with low self-esteem.

• Dilemma: A cute listener shares that she regrets not taking her ADHD diagnosis more seriously in her 20s. She asks how to move past self-shaming and be kinder to herself. 

• Ireggy Seggy with a Guestie: Grace's hubby Eric is here with a tongue-in-cheek quiz to determine once and for all "who is the most neurotypical"? The answer might (won't) surprise you!

RECS

• Tara recommends watching Alone while doing bed yoga. 
• Grace recommends an episode on The Imperfects podcast: Fern Brady - autistic in a non-autistic world.
• BOOKS: No Bad Parts, Different Not Less, ADHD 2.0 (see our IG for more!) @adhdbestiespodcast

Your ADHD Besties,
Grace & Tara xx
