ADHD! It's All Mishegoss

ADHD! It's All Mishegoss
ADD or ADHD! Do those terms get you down or fill you with anxiety? What do you think of when you hear those terms? Do think of the word Mishgoss? Mishegoss, Yiddish for insane, madness, and crazy. Which sometimes can define your feelings when you live with ADHD. Patti and I try to help make these feelings make sense by talking about our own experiences living with ADHD. We’re the UNCOLA of content. We’re unedited, unscripted, and refreshingly raw. We don’t do interviews with the experts, the rich and famous, nor celebrities. Looking for fancy intros or fancy anything? Sorry, that’s just not us
