What can a published study — and an excerpt from my first book — explain about ADHD, empathy, and the neurotransmitter dopamine? That’s what this post is all about.

For many obvious reasons, ADHD-challenged relationships tend to teem with arguments and conflicts. Especially when neither partner knows ADHD is in the mix! Apart from that, why do some people with ADHD self-medicate with argument? What does that phrase even mean? I wrote about this in my first book, in 2008. Since then, we hear about it more onlin…
 
When a thought pops in your head, do you feel like you need to do something with it right away or else you’ll forget? That whack-a-mole thinking is a stressful way to live.

Today I'm explaining what I do when I walk in the door after a long day.
