    Hi Doctor Halloway, I am really fortunate to listen to key latest research in ADHD by you. I struggle with ADHD and with it depressiona and anxiety. I cracked under anxiety this week during my sports training session. My coach doesnt believe my performance came down to 10 percent from 80 percent. Doctor Hollaway, I struggle with maintaining focus during pressure situations all my life. The good thing I am a really hard worker sportsman and graduate. So I work more hard and smart but it is my wondering mind during those pressure moments I call opportunities I want to maintain my focus to become great player in my sports of cricket. I also never used medication all life. So please doctor Holloway can you help me reccomend me what to do to strongly keep my focus on the job during the matches and also in daily life? I believe in positivity and and I know that someday my hard work in cricket will pay and I shall click.

    Hi Dr. Hallowell,
    Thank you for this episode. I have been a fan of your strength-based model and your books. My favorites are ‘Driven to distraction’ and Driven to distraction at work’. My question is around the diagnosis of VAST. Does one still needs to go for a formal diagnosis from a licensed professional to confirm that one has ADHD/ VAST? As I understand, any approach to manage the condition, medication or alternative approaches, would need to be preceded by a diagnosis. Looking forward to your response. Thanks, Ratan

    Hi Ratan! Thanks so much for your message! Dr. Hallowell has spoken on this topic a few times in the past. Here’s one episode that might be particularly helpful: https://www.distractionpodcast.com/2021/02/04/start-managing-your-adhd-symptoms-today-dont-wait-for-a-diagnosis/ And the episode we released today addresses diagnosis as well. Thanks again for your comment and for listening/reading! 🙂
