On this episode, I am joined by two guests in my studio.  These two people are in, what we are calling, a “mixed (almost) marriage,” where one of the partners has been diagnosed with ADHD.  Emily and Josh, a couple from Chicago, have been together for three years and sat behind my mics for this conversation.   

Josh has ADHD and Emily does not.  He was diagnosed with ADHD right before they met, so his journey has coincided with their relationship.  Josh works as a support engineer at a tech company and codes on the side for fun.  Emily works at a non-profit for middle and high school girls.

Rank #15: 113 | Markers for ADHD with Dr. Thomas Brown

Podcast cover
Read more

Episode 113 | Markers for
ADHD

Dr. Brown and Eric Tivers began the 113th Episode of ADHD
reWired by discussing “Cookies and Accountability”. It was a great
story about Dr. Brown and his wife and the temptations of a plate
of chocolate chip cookies.

Eric got a lot of information out of Dr. Brown and this show
will most likely call for a second or possibly third listen to get
it all.

2 conditions under which those with ADHD do well.

  • Interest
  • Pressure

Most ADHD people have no problem focusing on tasks they are
interested in or tasks for which they are afraid of
consequences.

Dr. Brown went through the 6 different markers he looks for when
diagnosing and during treatment of his ADHD patients.

  • Activation
    • Can they get organized and/or get started?
    • How much are they procrastinating
  • Attention / Focus
    • Can they focus or shift focus.
    • Do they get locked on to one thing and can’t get back on the
      current task
  • Alertness
    • Do they finish things in a reasonable amount of time?
      • Many people do not get the necessary amount of sleep
    • Are they able to sustain effort?
  • Managing frustration & Emotions
    • Do their emotions come on too strong or too weak
      • Some of them get excited with “What ifs”
      • Obsessing about things they will do or buy at a later
        time.
    • Working Memory
      • Can they keep one thing in mind while doing something else?
        • No so much the long term but short term memory
      • Monitor and self-regulate actions
        • Do you come across to others as you intend to.
