In this episode, Tracy decided to bring on a real member of her ADHD for Smart Ass Women Facebook Group so she put out the word. A lot of members responded but Tracy decided to invite 24-year-old Josie Bowman who was diagnosed in May.
Prior to her diagnosis, Josie was struggling but she didn’t understand how much she was struggling with everyday life. She thought everyone struggled like she did. If anything, she believed that her struggles were a result of her character flaws. It was her fault. But then her boyfriend came into the picture, told her what he observed and her life changed overnight.
Josie shares information about:
- Her childhood
- Her ADHD symptoms in childhood
- Her ADHD symptoms in young adulthood
- Her college experience
- Her experience with medication
- How she manages her ADHD
- Her future plans and goals
Learn what advice Josie would give to a young woman who really struggles and thinks she might have ADHD?
