A Community That Understands Us (day 23)

Posted by Mindy Katz on October 23, 2015 in All about ADHD, Flourish with ADHD |

After several years as a CHADD (Children & Adults with ADHD) support group coordinator, it is clear to me that both adults with ADHD and parents of children with ADHD experience a sense of isolation. It can be hard to escape the judgements and well-meaning advice from people who have not walked in your shoes. It […]

To my amazement, I was diagnosed with ADHD as an adult. After all, there was no reason to think I would be. I had homeschooled four children for over ten years, earned straight A’s in all my schooling and was successful in every job I had taken with promotions gained quickly and often. I was […]

Practicing Mindfulness (Day 20)

Posted by Mindy Katz on October 19, 2015 in ADHD at Work, Flourish with ADHD, Tips & Tools |

ADHD Awareness Month – Day 19 Sometimes we don’t even notice when our brains are going full speed ahead. We don’t realize that we might be better served if we were to slow down and proceed with caution. One way that I conceptualize the hyperactivity of the ADHD brain is to imagine it full of […]

Alternative Treatment for ADHD (day 17)

Posted by Mindy Katz on October 17, 2015 in All about ADHD, Flourish with ADHD |

I am often asked about non-prescription treatments for ADHD. Sometimes they are promoted as safe alternatives to medication; however, that is not often the case. Frequently, these claims are not backed up with good scientific studies to support their claims. Stephanie Moulton Sarkis, Ph.D., in her book “Natural Relief for Adult ADHD” reviews the research […]

Perfectionist or Optimalist*?

Posted by Mindy Katz on October 9, 2015 in Flourish with ADHD |

ADHD Awareness Month – Day 9 From the outside looking in, folks might find it hard to believe that perfectionism is a common ADHD trait. One of the reasons it seems so odd is that, often, it doesn’t even look like we are doing what we need to do. Perfectionism can lead to Procrastination  – […]

Posted by Mindy Katz on October 7, 2015 in All about ADHD, Flourish with ADHD |

 ADHD Awareness Month – Day 7 I could see it coming. Clients had barely landed in the chair when all their troubles from the past week started to spill out.
