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
