Accommodations and Learning to Ask For What You Need

We’re welcoming Black Girl, Lost Keys blog creator, René Brooks, to Distraction as our guest host for ADHD Awareness Month! René is an ADHD coach, writer and advocate who also has ADHD herself.

Today our guest host is joined by Inger Shaye Colzie, a psychotherapist and ADHD leadership coach, for a conversation about accommodations. They talk about the treatment journey and how you have to figure out what you need help with, and then practice asking for it.

As you’ll hear in today’s episode, René says advocating for yourself is a skill that you need to develop, as there are things that she would never have dreamed of asking for when she was first diagnosed, that she doesn’t think twice about asking for now. 

The pair also talk about the give-and-take aspect of accommodations, and how everyone needs help in some part of life, whether they have ADHD or not. And that’s where your strengths can come into play, as you’ll hear them discuss. 

Like René, Inger Shaye was diagnosed with ADHD as an adult, and was a therapist for 15 years before being diagnosed herself. Learn more about Inger Shaye Colzie on her website by clicking HERE.  And you can find  her Facebook group here: Black Women with ADHD

Claiming our Creative Identity with Donna Joyce

We are all born creatives. We then receive messages that undermine our innate creativity and squash the curiosity and courage that is needed to exercise the creative muscle. It’s time to reclaim, release shame, and step into the light. It can be terrifying to step into our true selves after a lifetime of being undermined and receiving messages that undervalue the thing we want most. Donna Joyce is a WRITER – she can say that today. Getting to this place has been a journey of courage, compassion, discovery, and healing. Join us on Saturday morning LIVE at 10 am here on The If You Could See Me Project page!

#IfYouCouldSeeMe began with a bout of synesthesia in the shower when as I washed my hair I envisioned the hashtag. In that moment I knew that this was my mission: to help foster creativity, facilitate self-compassion, remind people of their innate goodness, and provide a nurturing space for them to find the truth of themselves within the depths of their life’s most challenging moments…and then speak them out loud for all to hear.
There’s a lot going on here at The If You Could See Me Project!
