When we first heard René Brooks share her story on Distraction in 2020, we knew we wanted to hear more from her!
Today we’re resharing that first conversation with René which was part of our ADHD Awareness Month celebration in Season 5.
Here’s the description of that episode– Season 5, Episode 8:
René Brooks had to get diagnosed with ADHD three times before finally getting the right treatment. And now she’s using her superpowers to empower other black women with ADHD through her blog, books and brand, Black Girl, Lost Keys.
In this episode, René shares the struggles she faced as a smart young girl who felt defective because she couldn’t keep her room clean or do her homework. She shares the moment she knew medication was right for her and talks about how getting properly diagnosed with ADHD was critical to her success and happiness in life.
Check out René’s most recent book, Everything You Need to Completely Clean With ADHD.
