Message from the Editor: You Can’t Say No to Sari Solden’s New Videos!

Are you someone who gets excited about a lot of things and ends up taking on too much, only to realize it the day before something is due? That happens a lot to people with ADHD who are often interested in a lot of different things, have great ideas and even better intentions, but can also have trouble slowing down to check out the big picture before committing. In the hustle and bustle of the new year, it’s easy to bite off a bit more than you can chew. So we figured it’s a good month to run a piece by Ally Martin, an ADHD coach, that talks about how you can say “No, thanks!” to that which doesn’t serve you, so that you can say “Yes!” to your own well-being.
New this month, we’ve started a new feature on the ADDA Web site, and to kick it off right, we’ve posted several videos by Sari Solden answering YOUR questions about ADHD in women on our new Women with ADHD page. So far, the videos address questions related to memory challenges, hormone fluctuations, relationships, and more. Keep the questions coming! You can submit your questions at www.add.org/women.
Also, don’t forget we’re expanding our virtual peer support groups and workshops. We have a group scheduled for tomorrow addressing challenges of parenting adults with ADHD. If you’re an ADDA member, we’re sure we’ve got something that will appeal to you. And if you’re not an ADDA member yet, this is definitely the year you should join ADDA and begin taking action to master your ADHD.
Enjoy!
Until next issue,

Believe in yourself!
