Relationships — Focus on Friendships
It’s not easy to make new friends as an adult, and keeping them can be a challenge for those of us with ADHD. Why do we sometimes feel friendless despite having nice humans in our contact list? How can we cope with anxiety around communication or guilt around falling out of touch? Let’s talk about how we can grow and maintain fun, fulfilling, platonic relationships, and how to be a good friend to others.

Community Check-In
Unstructured and open space is important for ADHD brains! It’s where we get to rest, play, and process. We’re holding a space for you to bring whatever is up for you to talk about, share your queer ADHD experience, get and offer support, and build community.

Hosts: Dylan Marie Alter, Lou Rogers

Self-Compassion
We may have endless kindness, patience, and support for friends, but do we also offer that compassion to ourselves? Berating ourselves into self-acceptance does not work. Let’s talk about why self-compassion is important and how to update our inner voice.

Envisioning Your Future and Future Self
The future can be a little fuzzy, especially for those of us who struggle with time perception and object permanence. Let’s talk about how to envision our future and our future self in a way that is realistic, honors our core self, and doesn’t sell us short. This work can provide a strong foundation for long-term satisfaction and goals.
