This podcast is for smart, high-ability ADD/ADHD (diagnosed or suspecting) women who see their symptoms as more positive than negative. I’m Tracy Otsuka your host and I’m committed to changing the conversation around ADHD. When I was diagnosed eight months after my son, my entire life suddenly made perfect sense but all I heard about was everything that my ADHD brain SHOULD be struggling with when in fact I would come to learn that my ADHD is responsible for some of my greatest superpowers. One other thing, we constantly hear about all the successful ADHD men, but no one talks about the women. This podcast is here to change that dynamic. ADHD women are my people, and I’m here to acknowledge, support and cheer them on.

I love the positive spin!
This is a great podcast for ADHD women who actually credit their ADHD for much of their success. There are so many successful people with ADHD but you rarely hear about them. There are some challenges of course, but whatever we focus on gets bigger. Tracy focuses on the positives in a fun, spirited way that is so much healthier. We just have a different brain!
Witty and insightful look at ADHD as a gift and not a curse.
Tracy delivers insightful information that I believe can help anyone own their gifts. She offers tools and suggestions that assist beyond the ADHD community. As neither a woman or ADHD diagnosed, I've recognized parts of myself through her stories. And I know that there's a triumph on the other side.
Learning is half the battle
I'm so happy that Tracy has made an extension of her popular ADHD facebook group. She has taught me so much about ADHD that I have had the opportunity to heal many old wounds. And she has taught me that ADHD is not a disorder but a gift, and more importantly a superpower to be sprinkled on everything I touch.
