E27 - ADHD Advocacy with Rach Idowu

In this episode, Shereen and Rach Idowu discuss Rach's journey with ADHD and her experience of being diagnosed as an adult. They also talk about Rach's transition from a civil servant to an ADHD advocate, her creation of ADHD trait flashcards, and the challenges of being a social influencer. They touch on topics such as rejection sensitivity dysphoria (RSD) and the importance of representation in the ADHD community. In this conversation, Rachel discusses two main topics: rejection sensitivity dysphoria (RSD) and ADHD tax. She shares her experiences with RSD, including the emotional sensitivity and coping mechanisms associated with it. Rachel also talks about the concept of ADHD tax, which refers to the costs incurred as a result of managing ADHD. She discusses the financial implications of ADHD tax and provides tips for avoiding it. Overall, the conversation highlights the challenges faced by individuals with ADHD and emphasizes the importance of self-advocacy and self-care. Host Shereen Guests Rachel Idowu Takeaways ADHD can be diagnosed in adulthood, and the journey to diagnosis can be unexpected and challenging. Transitioning from one career to another can be difficult for individuals with ADHD, but finding a job that provides mental stimulation and allows for ADHD advocacy can be fulfilling. Creating resources like ADHD trait flashcards can simplify information and provide support for individuals with ADHD. Being a social influencer can be overwhelming, and it's important to set boundaries and prioritize self-care. Representation in the ADHD community is crucial, and there is a need for more diverse voices and experiences to be heard. Rejection sensitivity dysphoria (RSD) is a common experience for individuals with ADHD, characterized by extreme emotional sensitivity and a tendency to ruminate on perceived rejection or criticism. Coping with RSD can involve both healthy and unhealthy strategies, such as seeking support from trusted individuals, therapy, and developing healthy self-esteem. ADHD tax refers to the costs incurred as a result of managing ADHD, including financial expenses due to impulsive spending and difficulties with managing subscriptions and financial responsibilities. To avoid ADHD tax, individuals can take proactive steps such as educating themselves about financial matters, seeking advice from others, setting up reminders and recurring alarms, and developing healthy coping mechanisms. It is important for individuals with ADHD to validate their own experiences and not let others' opinions or perceptions invalidate their feelings or struggles. Self-advocacy and self-care are crucial for individuals with ADHD, and it is important to be kind to oneself and focus on personal strengths and passions.

E26 - The Sky's the Limit - With Dr. Fiona Peters

In this episode of ADHD Babes, host Ana interviews Dr. Fiona Peters, a social care expert and author who was diagnosed with ADHD as an adult. Fiona shares her personal experience of seeking and obtaining a diagnosis, which was fraught with challenges and resistance from healthcare professionals. She discusses the impact of her diagnosis on her self-acceptance and understanding of her own strengths and challenges. Fiona also talks about the intersectionality of being a woman of color and neurodivergent, and how it has influenced her work and the way others perceive her. She emphasizes the importance of embracing one's true identity and not conforming to societal expectations. In this conversation, Fiona Peters and ADHD Babes discuss the unique experiences of women of color with ADHD and the importance of advocating for oneself in the mental health system. They also explore the role of fear in holding us back from pursuing our goals and offer advice on confronting and overcoming fear. Fiona shares her proudest achievement, which is her family, and emphasises the importance of self-discovery and embracing new chapters in life. Listeners are encouraged to visit Fiona's website for coaching sessions and resources.

Obtaining an official diagnosis can help with self-understanding and acceptance. Intersectionality plays a role in how others perceive and relate to individuals with multiple identities. Microaggressions and unconscious biases are still prevalent and need to be addressed. Self-care is essential for neurodivergent individuals to function at their best. Embrace the intersectionality of identities and recognize the unique experiences of individuals. Confront fears and pursue goals, even in the face of uncertainty. Advocate for oneself in the mental health system to ensure accurate diagnosis and treatment. Embrace new chapters in life and explore new interests and desires. Family can be a source of pride and accomplishment. Self-acceptance and growth are essential for personal development.
