Episode Notes: 1 Million Worry-Free Nights & Weekends for Lawyers with ADHD
Welcome! Why JDHD? Why Me? Why now?
This introduction to ADD for lawyers aims to tell you my “origin story.” How did we get here? How did I end up dedicating my career to helping lawyers with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (whether they know they have it or not)?
“On a desperate hunch, I talked to a charlatan who claimed to help adults with ADHD. In her wisdom, though, Roberta quickly concluded that I categorically did not have ADHD. After all, I had graduated from college and went to law school and passed the bar exam and practiced law. How could someone with ADHD do things like that?”
“My seven-year-old son—who is clever and amazing and compassionate and kind—is upside down on a worn leather couch. This is not unusual for him. His ass is resting where his head should be. His head is resting where his ass should be.”
