Original Show Notes from Episode #5

Did you know that people with ADHD pay a separate tax? It can be quite costly, too!

In this episode, Dana & David talk about the many, varied, and unusual ways that ADHD costs extra money. Everything from impulsive purchases, hobbies that we dive into and then drop, and free trials we sign up for then forget about, all the way to late charges and other penalties and costs associated with forgetting about important things!

Dana breaks down three major ways we end up paying the ADHD tax:

  1. Procrastination
  2. Forgetting
  3. Ignoring

In the course of the discussion, there are lots of useful tidbits and ways you can reduce your ADHD tax.

Also: don’t miss Dana’s fantastic self-talk method! This one little gem might be one of the most helpful elements of this whole episode!
