#3: Dr. Lara-Honos Webb: The Gift of Adult ADHD
3 days ago
Today I have a very special guest. She is the author of multiple books including The Gift of Adult ADD. I read this book initially about seven years ago after it was recommended by a therapist because I was struggling with ADD and it was one of those books you read and say “she’s talking about me”. It had a profound impact on my view of myself and how I was approaching my life. Flexible thinking Flexible thinking means there can be pitfalls but there are also gifts. This is something we can use in every area of our life even if it’s not ADHD in the sense of this is a challenge but how can I find some benefits to it? If I have a weakness how can I have some flexible thinking about that? You can recognize your weaknesses and make some progress in improving them without being defined by them. Are you going to be defined by your weaknesses or by your strengths? Symptoms of Adult ADD Inattentiveness: not being able to pay attention, follow through on instructions or follow directions. Impulsiveness: once you start something you can’t stop. That can be a recipe for addictions and other sorts of problems. Hyperactivity: the constant need to be active, the constant need for stimulation and the constant need for something new and different. Turning it into a gift The number one choice you can make is to define yourself by what’s working and also to find a match. A child might get in trouble because he wants to talk all day and be active. What if that kid decided he wanted to be a physical therapist? A physical therapist moves all day and talks all day. So it’s about helping people to find the path for them and broaden their idea of the kinds of jobs that will match who they are. The formula for success is to find that place where you are different from others. There are a lot of places where ADD fits well and you need to find those places.
