Moms of teens, where you at?
My teenager pulled some sneaky crap tonight to go to a party at midnight many cities away. I lost my sh*t.
How are other mom’s handling their teens and parties? Advice needed.
I grew up going to parties all the time, getting into trouble, so I know what happens at parties. To this, I have become a strict parent, more so because the very real fear of fentanyl everywhere 😩
Can we just skip the teen years please?!
Wife: you can't finish all those beers!!
Deloitte mamas - how long do you need to be back at work to avoid paying back leave if you resign? Looking in Dnet but thought I would ask. Considering a great job opportunity within a month of return

Could anyone tell me on the onboarding process in optum. Do we need to report to office. And what's next..
I'm a new first year associate, almost two weeks in. Have to ask: is it normal to have almost no idea what's going on? I know my teams view me as completely clueless (which is 100% accurate), but whenever I ask for an explanation/they go over something with me, I'm still left feeling like they're speaking a different language. Is it just me? Every time I do a task I get so nervous I'm screwing up big time because it's like I'm stumbling around in the dark. What can I do to improve?
Who’s looking for a junior copywriter?
Hi fishes What is the charge code for lateral joiners who is not allocated to any projects? Accenture
The last of us 2 is obviously an important game, culturally. I loved the storyline, contrary to popular opinion. It has a lot of representation with characters from various sexual orientations and races, and yet, no representation for south East Asians. How come we are almost always missing in video games? Not complaining, don’t care as much...but I am curious.
I have a counselor that always calls a meeting when a kid complains. She doesn’t take time to talk to me about it, and I’m always in meetings. The kids are empowered here.
My company is recruiting me for a “Assistant sales manager” position. My question is what do you think I should negotiate as a base pay? Anyone currently in that position?
Additional Posts in ADHD Consultants
Has anyone here declared ADHD as a disability at work? Need to stop medication and want to try to get extra coaching support (is that even possible?). But worried about being stigmatized.
Does anyone suspect a bit of an adderall abuse issue in our industry. Some of these people are a liiiiitle bit strung out a lot. So much fast talking, no eating. Or is it just coffee? What’s up?
Anyone here with impulse problems? I’m really bad with shopping if it’s a pressured/incentivized situation.
Also with eating... I know I need to stop eating crap but always end up giving in (CONT.)
Day 5 of Wellbutrin for ADHD. Already seem to wake up easier and been able to focus a bit more. Really hope to keep seeing improvement and this isn’t a placebo affect so far!
I'd love to create a sticky post here where we can share what technology tools we use to do our job better as Adhd consultants.
I've posted a tool - please consider using a similar format so it's consistent and easy to follow.
I keep failing interviews because I’m not structured /crisp / polished enough (despite the creativity, insights and “intrinsics” being there) - has anyone else struggled with this? How did you overcome it? Has anyone used any communication coaches?
Thinking about making a complaint to the ADA. I told someone I report to directly about my dyslexia and adhd during our one on one touch base and literally no accommodation or solutions, just this person still pushing things to me that will take me longer because I’m fucking dyslexic and assigning a short timeline just to complain about the quality
Has anybody been able to stay in consulting and get off adderall? Taken for about 6 years and finally off it since I haven’t been on a project in awhile but motivation still down 2 months in.. currently taking caffeine pills w/ l theanine and l tyrosine supps occasionally and b vitamins
👋🏼 do any of you use a planner? Either digital or paper? I'm looking for a nice planner for 2022. Something that will actually work for me, since majority of the planners it there aren't always suitable for us with ADHD (at least that's been my experience)
I am currently using the daily planner by Ivory Paper Company (https://www.ivorypaperco.com/daily-planners) but it is way too big and expensive.
My Vyvanse meds make me pretty dehydrated. No matter how much water I drink, my mouth is still dry plus it makes me end up needing to use the bathroom often. Any tips for dealing with both of these issues?
anyone else taking strattera having sexual side effects? (ED,etc) just started taking it and wondering if that goes away after a bit or if it’s ongoing because no… just no.
How did you get your SO to better understand ADHD? We’re getting married and he’s very patient and understands with me. Just wondering if there is a resource to help him understand that this is an executive function disorder and my brain is wired differently.
So weird I don’t remember joining this bowl (or why) but my new therapist recommended an ADHD assessment. I’ve been researching symptoms and can relate to a LOT of them (as a child and adult). I’m conflicted because I can stay organized when I track my daily routine (been using my daily planner consistently for 2 months yay) and I’m able to focus using Pomodoro technique. How do you differentiate b/w “normal” forgetfulness, time management issues, etc vs ADHD?
Any alternatives to addreell
Does mind lab pro work? (Heard about it)
What about any good strains of cannabis?
Diagnosed with ADHD as a child and stopped medication at 18. I’m 31 and I realize I need it again. Is it easy to get medication again if I bring my medical records to a physician?
Sleep advice/meds: If you’re not getting good quality sleep when on stimulants, what do you do? What sleeping pills do you recommend which don’t impact stimulants efficacy the next day?

A friend has one and swears by it because you get a pencil like feeling and the battery life is great compared to tablets. I personally use an iPad and Apple Pencil because I get more bang for my buck and have been fortunate enough to not get distracted easily while working because I keep it on DND. Plus the notifications on the iPad are slower than my phone because my iPads Wi-Fi only. So by the time it pops up on the iPad I’ve already checked it on my phone lol
I dont use Remarkable because their pricing plan is costly to migrate notes to cloud. I use Onyx boox note air - it is fully android and gives access to everything in Google playstore including kindle books and audible. Also, it has multiple cloud sync options unlike Remarkable. I can also suggest you Newly launched Kindle scribble which has similar wacom features but it has limitations because of Kindle fire OS and not android.
Same here! I love handwritten notes, feels like it just “sticks” better, but yeah $280 is a lot without at least touching this thing
Looks really cool. Love the functionality of a phone/iPad. But they’re way too distracting for me.
Thanks for asking this - I’ve been looking into reviews as well! Reddit has some thorough ones, if you’re interested.
My brain works better when I separate work tools from personal tools and I don’t want to get an iPad just for work, so was looking into this. I was thinking it would also give me the security of carrying all meeting notes with me instead of keeping old notebooks between the house and office.
I might take the plunge and consider it an ADHD tax - anything for a bit of relief.
I've had one for over a year and love it. It really has helped me stay organized
I don’t have remarkable, but like others I considered it but the uploading of notes monthly pricing plan deterred me. The iPad is costly but maybe getting a previous version will lower cost.
I use the good notes 5 app (very organized and can search your handwriting). On the premium version of the app I have like 8 notebooks already and just got it a month ago (for random work thoughts/idea, life thoughts, etc). I also got the paper like screen protector so it feels way more like paper.
I turned off ALL my notifications on the iPad so I don’t get distracted.
I have a Onyx Book, don’t use much for note taking, but read books on the Kindle app here and there.
I find myself taking notes on the laptop during a meeting more often than not.
I am in Manufacturing / Supply Chain, and have taken the Onyx book to a shop floor tour a few times but found it very inconvenient to hold and operate, where a small notepad would’ve been more appropriate and less pretentious around the factory floor folks.
