Survey Says! The Truth(s) About Life in the Non-Linear Lane for Women 40 + 

Presentation Date:  Monday, February 5th    |     Presentation Time: 10:00 am EST

Life in the non-linear lane can be a wild ride for women. But how do you separate the “ADHD” from the “me?” There is precious little research out there about ADHD women, especially for those of us 40+. I was so frustrated by this lack of information that I created an (admittedly unscientific) survey just for us. Nearly 500 women have completed the survey to date ( http://bit.ly/adhd40plus )
 
In this session, I’ll share preliminary results of that survey, painted against the backdrop of ADHD across a women’s lifespan: childhood to midlife and beyond.
 
  • The ADHD picture when we were our little girl selves (and how that differed from little boys with ADHD);
  • How estrogen played fast and loose with our brains, our focus and our PMS/PMDD each month (and other times, too) 
  • Stats about relationships, unplanned pregnancies and being fired (or not) from our jobs.
  • The best and worse moments in our ADHD lives
  • How ADHD makes us Who We Truly Are in the world and how we can share our gifts without apology
