Since then, Penn and Kim Holderness, the First Family of ADHD, have regaled us with instant classics including “10 ADHD Lifehacks from Penn,” “Me and My ADHD,” and “How to Listen (Kinda) with ADHD.”Aside from making us LOL, these witty and endearing videos have showcased the brilliant creativity, mind-blowing energy, and totally unique perspectives that ADHD can bring.

ADHD is not 100% awesome, but the Holderness Family is very good at reminding us about the aspects and elements of this condition that do not suck.In their new book, ADHD is Awesome: A Guide To (Mostly) Thriving With ADHD, Penn and Kim encourage readers to change the narrative around ADHD with something they call Operation Mind Shift.

We Demand Attention on How Medication Adjustments During the Monthly Menstrual Cycle and Menopause Could Improve Treatment Outcomes for Women
A small study suggests that menstruating people with ADHD may achieve more effective and consistent symptom control by increasing the dosage of their prescribed stimulant medication in the luteal phase, when estrogen levels hit their lowest point.There is a dearth of research examining the changes in ADHD symptoms and medication efficacy during all phases of the menstrual cycle, and during other times of hormonal change.However, one 2023 study published in Front Psychiatry found that increasing a patient’s dosage of stimulant medication during the week prior to menstruation can significantly improve cognitive and emotional symptoms of ADHD during this notoriously difficult phase in the menstrual cycle.1 The study was the first of its kind to examine the impact of adjusting stimulant medication dosages during the menstrual cycle for women with ADHD and co-occurring depression and premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD) – a severe form of PMS.Prior to the study, these women experienced “diminished response to amphetamines in the late luteal phase” and an “exacerbation of their ADHD and depressive symptoms in the premenstrual week” that was not helped by their regular ADHD medication. This experience was echoed in ADDitude’s 2023 survey of nearly 2,000 women with ADHD, two-thirds of whom said they experienced intense symptoms of premenstrual syndrome (PMS) or PMDD, beginning, on average, at age 14 and lasting for up to 40 years.
