Routine & Regulation: Making a Neurodivergent Nightmare a Daydream

Routine & Regulation: Making a Neurodivergent Nightmare a Daydream

Routine is something we ALL have. As humans it's something we're drawn towards so it's always puzzled me why it's been attributed to something we Neurodivergent folks do. I’ve come to realise, as my routine has recently been uprooted, that it's the way we hold and use...

Building boundaries with ADHD

Building boundaries with ADHD

As ADHDers, when we don't have boundaries we burn out. We had the wonderful Michelle Minnikin of Workpirates come down and run a two-part session all about the who, what, when and why of boundaries. Why did we choose this session for ADHDers? We tend to stretch...

5 Ways to beat ADHD Mam overwhelm!

5 Ways to beat ADHD Mam overwhelm!

Remember! You are not just Mammy!!! It’s so hard sometimes to not lose your grip on sanity, and feel totally overwhelmed - I know that some days I forget what my actual name is, and think I am really called 'Mam'. Indeed my 2.5-year-old laughed at me and called me...

Escape the ADHD doom-inbox: 5 Email unsubcription tools

We have all felt overwhelmed by our Inbox at some point or other – I like to keep mine to a minimum, but with a business account, a personal account, and an ‘other, it can be really hard to keep track of all the ‘stuff’ that I’ve subscribed to over the years. Not to...

A home for you and your ADHD

A home for you and your ADHD

Our homes are meant to be a sanctuary for us and our brains, but for many reasons (such as children, housemates and renting), it can be hard to make our brains feel at home. In a crazy world, it is so important to be able to go home to a safe space where you can...

Facing ADHD and being a woman

Facing ADHD and being a woman

It's a well-known fact it's much harder for women with ADHD to get a diagnosis. In fact, men are three times more likely to get one! Partly due to ADHD often presenting differently (disorganised, scattered, forgetful…) it's much easier to overlook and just say “oh...
