It’s time to talk about ADHD.
This topic is near and dear to me because I was diagnosed with ADHD as a teenager, and it took me many years to learn how to acknowledge the benefits of having ADHD as well as ways to manage the parts of ADHD that make my life a little bit more challenging.
I’m joined in this episode by Dr. Cristine Ehly to discuss what options are available to you to manage your ADHD, no matter how old you were when you got your diagnosis. You might need help with your focus, mood, energy levels, or something else entirely. Wherever it is, you’re in good hands with Dr. Cristine.
If you’re wondering where to start with your ADHD management, we’ve got you covered.
