Hey ADHD best frandzz ✨

On today's show:
• We talk about how auditory stimulation can help keep us regulated - Grace made a 'brain massage" 💆🏻‍♀️🎶 playlist that we can all use to calm our overloaded-but-cute nerves: https://spoti.fi/3Uv0wrb

• Tara recommends the 'Women and ADHD' podcast with Katy Weber. Here's the link to her ADHD and food episode: https://bit.ly/44xYefo

• Grace recommends a surprising dishwasher hack (??) and the book 'No Bad Parts' by Richard Schwartz and talks about how it helped her understand herself better as a woman with ADHD: No Bad Parts book

• Dilemma #1 - "Am I a fraud if I don't get diagnosed?" - We answer this complicated listener question and discuss whether we feel a diagnosis is worth it and why, self-identifying vs. self-diagnosis in ADHD and the privilege in the diagnosis process and attaining government support for ADHD in Australia with the NDIS.

• Dilemma #2 - "I have ADHD and motherhood is nothing like I expected" in this very relatable dilemma we discuss ADHD and parenthood, the overstimulation/sensory overwhelm of being a mother and the increased executive functioning load that can lead to ADHD burnout as well as looking at anxiety in women with ADHD

• Ireggy Seggy: "Unnecessary ADHD Deep Dive" we play guess the celebrity favourite foods, Grace gets way too competitive (as always) and we utter the unfortunate phrase "Beiby loves a bog".
