Description

It’s supposed to be empowering, and client stories — to be relatable. But as for me it looked like the narrator’s voice is pityful and they feel really sorry for you and want to guide you. Like you are some little helpless creature not being able to stand for yourself. From the home and workplace to school and in relationships, this update from the 1999 classic is more comprehensive than ever. The complexity of women and girls is captured by team of two therapists and a pediatrician/ADHD specialist using clinical examples, research and case material and does not shy away from controversy. All of us have our own pre-conceived notion of the disease and are aware of stereotypes, but this book is straightforward and to the point and does not focus on either of those. As we all know, relationships can suffer greatly when ADHD is involved, and this book can help identify why we do some of the things we do, and how to understand and correct those behaviors. Buy Now The solutions they DO talk about come with caveats like, strategies need to be personalized, and come from a place of power instead of pain. Overall, here’s the big idea the authors (who earned bonus points for being women with adhd themselves) state that moved me: In working through the exercises you identify the exact areas that have become tangled in your life due to ADHD. In working through these you can find your way to untangle them assisted by the clear direction of the authors. This book is all about "accepting your differences". OK, I get it. Some ADHD women indeed need to hear that. However, it never really explicitly explained what the "differences" are and how to really embrace them. The examples in the books are like "well this girl she used to try to be like others, but now she accepted herself as a person with ADHD so now she's doing better" -- but wait, what and how? What exacly was she trying to do to "be like others" and what/how she accepted about herself? I can't believe someone can write a book just by playing with general meaning vocabularies like this.

A Radical Guide for Women with ADHD: Embrace Neurodiver…

This book is not a guide to change – but to accept your differences, ditch the shame and feelings of inadequacy and help you uncover your authentic self that has been buried for so many years. It helps you find your voice and there is nothing more empowering than being seen and heard. You don’t need to fix yourself to start living, to feel good about yourself, and to show the world who you are. You have ADHD and always will, which had to be okay- even if it doesn’t always feel okay- because it simply is the reality of your life. It doesn’t define you; it’s simply a description of how your brain is wired. 🤍 Sari Solden & Associates is a private practice in Ann Arbor, MI, that specializes in providing psychotherapy and consultation and assessment to men and women with ADHD and their loved ones.

With helpful worksheets and practical, inspirational prose, this is a must-read for women with ADHD and the clinicians who work with them."

Also most of the life examples are coming from some sweet suburban life where woman as a wife is supposed to manage the house and to host family dinners, and is having difficulties with that due to ADHD but is afraid to ask to support. As for me, the main problem here is the most these clients would need therapy even without ADHD. And you probably should ask for help doing your chores not just because you are struggling with ADHD but because you are not actually obligated to fulfill your gender expectations and to manage all the family stuff alone as a wife. This is a guide to help you do the important work that comes before ADHD strategies can be effective. Don't misunderstand--strategies are essential when you live with ADHD. But are you looking for strategies that will allow you to reach your goals? Or are you looking for strategies that will help you blend in with the neurotypicals? Without understanding, you cannot accept. Without acceptance, there is no path to living out loud with ADHD.
