EPISODE SHOW NOTES

Episode 12:
Different But Not Broken

For years Jeanette Graham felt like she was broken. School, everyday tasks, and relationships seemed to challenge her more than her peers and leave her frustrated, exhausted, and misunderstood.

CONNECT WITH JEANETTE GRAHAM HERE

It wasn’t until her husband shared with her that he suspected she could have ADHD that she considered there might be an explanation for the difficulties she’d experienced her whole life. After confirming that she was one of 15 million adults in the US living with ADHD, and learning more about the many ways in which ADHD can profoundly affect so many aspects of life including marriage, parenthood, and work, Jeanette made it her mission to educate herself and provide resources for others living with ADHD. 

In this episode Jeanette shares her story and offers gentle advice for those living with ADHD and those who love them.

Jeanette Graham is a wife and mother of 3, she also has Combination/Primary Inattentive type ADHD.  Jeanette was diagnosed in the spring of 2017 and that diagnosis changed her whole world. Since the diagnosis Jeanette has started a podcast that chronicles her journey navigating her symptoms and struggles.

ABOUT YOUR HOST

I’m a writer, a teacher, a native New Yorker, and I love hearing about people’s lives. When I think back to my elementary school days at PS 20 in Flushing, Queens whenever we began social studies or a history lesson I wasn’t that interested in learning about battles, topography, or politics. What I wanted to know was how people lived: What their families were like, how they adapted to their circumstances, what they ate, how they celebrated, how they felt.
 
Sociology became my major at Binghamton University and in my life so far I’ve been an actress, a salesperson, a Zoo Keeper’s Aid, a volunteer animal trainer, an ELL teacher, a mother, and a wife. I’m grateful for the experiences I’ve had, all of which led me to create this podcast which is one of the most rewarding projects I’ve undertaken. I couldn’t ask for a better job than having in-depth conversations with survivors, thought leaders, authors, social justice warriors, and people who believe that we are all connected and then getting to share their stories, insight, and vulnerability with listeners.
 
I’m so glad you’ve landed on this page. I hope you find stories here which resonate with you and that you’ll tune in every week.
