Unveiling the ADHD Experience: Triumphs, Neurodiversity, and Empathetic Leadership

Discover the untold narratives of ADHD as the incredible Jo (all the way from Australia) and yours truly, unpack and mirror the highs and lows many face when dealing with this condition. From the serenity found in medication to juggling professional achievements amidst the whirlwind of anxiety, this episode peels back the layers of ADHD and its management. Together, ADHD friend Jo and I tear down the stigma, one personal triumph at a time, and we invite all listeners to find the empowerment within their unique experiences.

We've all faced the challenge of fitting into a world that seems wired differently than us, especially for those with ADHD. This episode brings to light the sheer determination and creativity needed to carve out a successful career. It's a candid conversation about leveraging the strengths of ADHD, navigating the world of medication, and the late diagnosis journeys that shape diverse outcomes for adults with the condition.

In a celebration of difference, this episode champions the idea that everyone's cognitive profile contributes to a richer tapestry of society. We tackle the emotional intelligence and emphatic leadership often overlooked in those with ADHD, proposing a new narrative that honors neurodiversity as a valuable asset. Join us as we share stories of success, debunk myths, and promote a future where empathy and passion are recognized as key leadership qualities, and where every individual's talents are not just acknowledged but revered.

Embracing Real Bonds in an Online World

Gather round the crackling warmth of Lobow's lakeside retreat, where Lobow & UP4thechallenge peel back the layers of our podcasting adventure, one reflection at a time.  We examine the contrast between the tangible vibrancy of recording side by side and the sometimes sterile touch of podcasting across the digital divide. It's a heartfelt interlude that meanders through the realms of mental health (specifically ADHD, Autism, and OCD), the pursuit of control, and the subtle ways these forces shape our friendships and the very essence of our show. Sit with us as we unravel the complexities of maintaining authenticity in a world where online personas often overshadow real-life identities, discussing the nuanced ballet of social adaptability that we all perform.

As the embers of our conversation glow, we pivot to the sanctuaries of comfort and understanding within our relationships, both virtual and in the flesh. Here, we navigate the choppy waters of being misconstrued, championing the cause for empathy in recognizing the diverse mental landscapes that make us uniquely ourselves. Whether it's feeling misunderstood based on outward appearances or negotiating the dynamics of a partnership where one thrives online, this episode is a mosaic of our personal experiences and insights. Join us as we toast to the new year and the enduring power of connection that binds us all.

Laughter and Empathy as Therapy for the Neurodivergent Mind

When Christophe walked into our studio, his story immediately struck a chord. On the cusp of 40, he never expected that his wife's dual diagnosis of ADHD and autism would lead to his own revelation of living with undiagnosed ADHD. As we peel back the layers of his journey, you'll discover how embracing neurodivergence can redefine personal success, and why standardization in our society often misses the mark in acknowledging individual strengths.

Our candid conversation with Christophe—a seasoned hypnotherapist—takes us through the serendipitous moments of recognizing ADHD traits in oneself and the paradoxical strengths they bring. Whether it's being a 'jack-of-all-trades' in an IT department or tapping into social chameleon skills, this episode celebrates the quirks and the qualities that make us who we are. We laugh about our shared experiences on the frontline of adaptability, and we provide an insider's guide to navigating the diagnosis process in the UK. This isn't just about one man's insight; it's an open door to understanding and harnessing the potential within a neurodiverse brain.

Wrap up your earbuds, because we're about to unpack the transformative impact of therapy, laughter, and kindness on mental health.  And remember Christophe's takeaway: whether you're spreading positivity through your digital presence or learning a new language, the simplest acts can be the most profound. So, let's chuckle, nod, and maybe even tear up a bit as we affirm the profound effects of empathy and humor. Join us for a session that's as entertaining as it is enlightening, and walk away with the mantra that might just make the world a better place: "Don't be a dick."

Our spirited discussion in the Spark Speed Challenge chapter explores the idea of a "reset day" and how it can be a game-changer. We believe that accomplishing even one task can be a source of contentment.  Authenticity and self-validation are our parting thoughts, emphasizing the importance of recognizing our strengths and validating our own experiences.

The Echoes of Trauma: A Candid Look at ADHD and Family Dynamics

What if uncovering the roots of your struggle with anxiety, attention, or substance use led you to a surprising realization? Imagine tracing those roots back to a generational trauma linked to undiagnosed neurodivergence in your family. That's a journey many of us embarked upon, including yours truly, leading to late-life ADHD diagnoses that reverberated through our family dynamics. We offer a candid exploration of the ripple effects of these discoveries, including the inherited coping mechanisms and behavioral patterns that can carry heavy burdens such as substance dependence.

Unraveling our own neurodivergence led us to recognize some startling behaviors learned from our families, like using food as a crutch or wrestling with social anxiety. Hear firsthand accounts of our participants who discovered ADHD later in life and the unique challenges and insights it brought to their familial relationships. Our stories underscore the crucial importance of breaking generational cycles and the power of awareness in setting ourselves on a path of positive transformation.

Finally, we tackle the often overlooked aspect of such a profound revelation - the toll it takes on our mental health and the strength it requires to confront and process our traumas. With vulnerability and honesty, we share how we're navigating these challenges, building bridges of understanding with our loved ones, and embracing our neurodivergence. We believe in the power of open dialogue about mental health and the role it plays in shattering stigmas. Come join us on this journey as we shed light on a lesser-discussed aspect of mental health - the echoes of generational trauma through the lens of neurodivergence.

ADHD & Loss: Healing with Music

Today's ADHD friend is Guy Farmer and he is one of my best friends.  ADHD & Emotion…We talk face to face about this with Guy who has recently been through the loss of his father.  He and I grew up together and in this episode, we will discuss what it feels like to lose someone so close to you.

Guy Farmer is a passionate musician whose journey began in the humble corridors of his middle school. A natural with the guitar and a born songwriter, Guy played in several bands during his high school years, later captivating audiences every Friday night with his own band, The RiverSide Rounders. Shortly after graduating college, Guy's talent was recognized by WaterWorks Entertainment music publishing, who signed him in 2007. From then on, he has been consistently writing and performing music, with his debut album 'Guy Farmer' hitting the shelves in 2008. Though he hasn't released more albums, Guy has been diligently recording songs. In fact, he's amassed enough music for five full albums! In 2019, he planned to release a new EP, 'Micro Dose', but the pandemic's arrival in 2020 delayed the release. Fast forward to this summer, and 'Micro Dose' is set for release! It will be available on iTunes and several streaming services. A lover of tangible music mediums, Guy will also be offering CDs with an embedded download code, allowing fans to add the tunes to their devices. Because for Guy, it's all about spreading happiness through music!

Because Guy is such a close frined of mine, it is a true honor to say that GUY, YOU ARE…SOMETHING…FOR SOMEONE….And that someone is me.  Thank you.

EMBRACING ANNOYING ADHD TRAITS: A CANDID PODCAST

Let's get honest and think about the things in ourselves that we don't like and how we can give ourselves the grace and understanding we (and those around us) deserve.

Lets explore the simple power of self-reflection and see how it can lead to better understanding, acceptance and compassion. Come along with us as we delve headfirst into this journey and acknowledge the parts of ourselves we may not be so fond of and then finish with true love for one another.  Brave ADHD friends featured are Terri Shubilla, Leo Guinan, Blushing Crafter, Kirk Hofstrom, and Mechi Mansilla.  Together WE ARE….SOMETHING FOR SOMEONE…

YOUR ADHD SPOUSE...A NEUROTYPICALS VOW OF RESILIENCE

Welcome to Season 10 of Lobow’s Spark…ADHD and RESILIENCE.  Today’s friend is Brittany and she does NOT have ADHD but stay with me here…Sometimes when it comes down to ADHD and being resilient, we need a Neurotypical partner who is resilient enough to put in the time to understand us. It is even more important that they put in the time to try and understand the way our brain works. In this episode, I speak with a loving wife to an ADHD husband. Brittany gives us a glimpse into what some of those without ADHD experience when being around those of us that have it. When we with ADHD know how resilient we are, there might be a loved one who is resilient as well...Brittany has made the choice to try and understand her ADHD husband. She is trying to adjust, trying to battle frustration because she loves her husband with everything she has. It is for these reasons, I have the privilege to say… Brittany, YOU ARE SOMETHING…FOR SOMEONE…

ADHD & RESILIENCE...A TEAM EFFORT

Season 10 of Lobow’s SPARK is dedicated to my loving parents.

Today’s Group Episode centers around the very theme of season 10, “ADHD & Resilience.”  This topic was brought up by my loving mother who mentioned that not one time have I said the word “resilient” on this podcast.  She was so right. I have both my parents to thank for instilling this characteristic in me at a young age. In this episode, each ADHD friend tells their story and/or opinions on what it means to be resilient in their own lives and we conclude with what might be the most epic ending to any episode thus far.   Resilient ADHDers featured are Terri Shubilla, Leo Guinan, Kirk Hofstrom, Dorsey McFadden, and Mechi Mansilla.  TOGETHER, WE ARE…SOMETHING FOR SOMEONE….

The Power of ADHD Friendship with SABRINA PYLES

Today’s ADHD friend is Sabrina Pyles and she is one of the most down to earth and truly real people you will ever meet.  This comes as no surprise to me as every single ADHDer I have met, is TRULY real.  Sabrina and I discuss ADHD medication in this episode which is why I must put a disclaimer that I am not a psychiatrist that specializes in ADHD nor am a qualified to tell you what you should do.  I am simply speaking from my own personal experience with ADHD medication and I am in no way saying that a certain drug will or will not work for you.  That is for the trained professionals of which I am not.  That being said, let’s go back to introducing one the most badass people I have ever met with ADHD…Sabrina.  She is open, she is honest and she has confirmed my belief that our education system flat out sucks whether you are neurodivergent or “normal.”  It is for these reasons I have the honor of saying Sabrina… YOU ARE SOMETHING...FOR SOMEONE.

The Power of Friendship w/Up4thechallenge

I thought this was another ADHD friend...But a miscommunication ended up introducing me to one the most energetic people I have ever come into contact with.  He goes by Up4thechallenge... But Adam (My real name as well) is OCD, Autistic,…AND BRILLIANT.  This fast-paced episode kept me up all night and I loved it.  As a matter of fact, I almost couldn’t keep up. Talking with Up4thechallenge truly gave me a glimpsa into the autistic brain.  I highly suggest you follow him on all of his social media accounts listed below....But he doesn’t care about that, it was a promise he made...

It is for these reasons that it is an honor (no matter how much it will piss him off)

ADHD GOOD VS. ADHD EVIL w/Terri Shubilla

I’m not going to call Terri an ADHD friend but instead, I’m going to say she is now one of my closest friends. Honestly this episode speaks for itself. Terri and I talk about the power of friendship, the struggle that ADHD people have in relationships and everything in between. But the most important thing about this episode is that illustrates what it looks like in your mind to have ADHD.  It is a constant ADHD good versus ADHD evil… Who wins? I can truly say that in my short time podcasting, this is easily the episode I am most proud of.  It is an honor to say that Terri Shubilla, you are something for…so many people…

ADHD & SEX...

ADHD affects EVERY aspect of our lives including sex & it needs to be discussed. However, not a lot of people want to talk about it and put themselves out there.  The 4 of us have set an example by talking about sex as mature adults.  By talking about the way the ADHD brain relates to sex.  Use your creative side as an advantage in bed.  Brave ADHer’s featured in this episode are Terri Shubilla, Leo Guinan, Dorsey McFadden, and of course, myself… I am so proud of us for proving that this needs to be talked about hopefully, more ADHDers will feel more confidence to talk about it.  Together, we are something for someone…

A LIFE SAVING INSTINCT w/ADHD WARRIOR Casey Elliott (Part 2 of 2)

Part 2 of this mini-series “A Life Saving Instinct with ADHD Warrior Casey Elliot."  Previously, an emotional story was told proving how ADHD minds can save someone’s life.  For this episode, in addition to Casey, we have brought in Justin Allingham and Leo Guinan to discuss the very important topic of the current education system and how it must be changed not just for neurodivergent kids, but for everyone.  The current system is failing.  Kids are frustrated and scared to be themselves.  An education system that teaches a student's particular interest and/or strengths might very well help save their life.  By having this real conversation about our ideas to change it, we are helping…It is for these reasons I am honored to say that Leo, Justin, & Casey ARE Something for Someone…

WARRIORS INSPIRE TEAMWORK w/Leo Guinan & Reddy

Today, we have a unique and amazing episode as Leo Guinan, and I co-host with one of the most fun people I have ever met.  He goes by the name Reddy and he is currently building a platform called “Play.” Play is whatever you want to make it and Reddy will take us through just how important it is for adults to be free to be kids again.  Leo will take us through some exciting updates on his Feather CRM as well as he is putting the “Social,” back into “social media.”  So how does this fit into being a Warrior? A Warrior is someone who dedicates a ton of time and effort for the betterment of others.  Warriors work in order for others to be free to be themselves.  That is what both “Play” and “Feather” are doing.  Both of these ideas started with hearts that put people first.  Listen to the 3 of us spend some time truly living in the moment…That’s hard for adults to do these days.  Today, we set an example for so many by setting an example for others and saying IT IS OK TO HAVE FUN.  Warriors fight for many different reasons, we fight today to hopefully show you that it is completely ok to be yourself, to be a kid, to build what you want to build…Leo and Reddy, together We are…Something for Someone…

Today’s ADHD Warrior is Angel and she has recently made the decision to try and focus on her ADHD strengths.  This is one of the hardest things to do for someone with ADHD and the fact that she is moving forward in her life and coming out of her shell, makes her an ADHD Warrior.  So what is Angel doing to help her fellow ADHD community? She is stepping outside her comfort zone and telling her story. She sets an example of encouragement for all Neurodiverse people as she inspired me throughout our entire conversation.  That is what makes her a true Warrior.  Angel, you are Something for Someone

THE WILDFIRE INTENSIFIES - The ADHD Tax

As we dive deeper into ADHD, we will be doing this as an ADHD team on Season 5.  I will have a group of fellow neurodivergents alongside me to discuss a specific ADHD topic that one of them has a great interest in.  Today's topic is the ADHD Tax and it was chosen by Dorsey McFadden who brings an incredible knowledge of ADHD to the table. 

 It is important to understand that people with ADHD have a natural understanding of our fellow ADHDers.  We are a team and teammates can sometimes disagree with each other.  We all have strong opinions, and each of us has a unique style in which we present them.  But I feel that this is what makes us so strong.  We have strong opinions because we care so much about ADHD and mental health. …And caring matters.  So we will start this season on the discussion of The ADHD Tax….Let the  ADHD Wildfire Intensify…..

Fireside Chat - The ADHD Bonfire

The biggest fire yet...In the final episode of season 3 is an inspirational gathering where Lobow and his previous guests all get together at one time.  Each prior guest brings up a topic or question of their choosing and everyone provides feedback or experiences unique to them.  We all have ADHD. We all use it differently. We are all teachers and we are all students. This episode proves just how different each person with ADHD is and how different the strategies we use really are.  We do not agree on everything but we respect one another.  If you have ADHD, feel completely free to be yourself and comfortable around those who understand and thrive on being different.  

Season 3 of Lobow’s SPARK was produced in loving memory of a close friend who passed away due to mental illness. YOU ARE LOVED AND WE WILL NEVER FORGET YOU.

Fireside Chat with TMAC Fitness

Today’s fireside chat is with a close friend of mine Todd McCollough.  This episode is short but necessary if you have ADHD because it focuses on what exercise can do for the brain.  Todd developed a program called TMAC fitness (https://www.tmacfitness.com) which caters to the ADHD brain more than any other I have found.  His workouts are under 20 minutes and you can do them from anywhere..with no equipment...all you have to have.. is a phone.  What is most beneficial about TMAC fitness is the mindset... “if you want to get out of your mind, get into your body.” If you have ADHD, wouldn't it be nice to do this every once in a while considering our minds never stop?  Be motivated to literally hit the "play" button to exersice everyday...I can tell you it works.  Enjoy listening to Lobow & TMAC in this episode that is just as short as the workouts he has developed.

One of Lobow's closest friends from back in high school joins the ADHD conversation.  Guy Farmer is an extremely talented musician and spent a decade playing music in front of large crowds in Nashville, TN.  He also worked as manager of other bands handling the business side of the profession at the same time. If you want to listen to some awesome Rock 'n' roll, search Guy Farmer on iTunes and you will not be disappointed.  Guy talks about his late ADHD diagnosis and what medication has done for him.  But the most fun part about this episode is listening to two ADHD adults in their late 30's, discuss the high school education system and their opinions on what truly matters when you are that age.  See if you can keep up with Guy and Lobow in this fast paced episode that quickly moves from one topic to the next...Perfect if you have ADHD.

The Power of ADHD - Passion

Lobow puts emphasis on the second element of his SPARK strategy - The Power of Passion in ADHD.  It is our passion that ultimately fuels us.  Odds are if something or someone is important to us for any reason at all, what is important to them becomes vital to us.  But only if what is important to them is something that truly matters in life.  Again, it has to matter.  If it doesn’t, our brain will instantly stop providing the dopamine we need.  This is the kryptonite for us.  So how are we going to maintain our speed when the environment around us has “calmed down” and as a result, we have started to slow down?  The good news is that passion will maintain your speed and this is the primary focus of today’s episode.  

People with adhd have more passion and emotion than most people on earth. We have unmoderated emotion.  This means we are emotionally impulsive.  Sounds horrible right?  Wrong.  Listen to find out why.

…An inspiring story is also told during this episode.

Show notes

The Power of ADHD - Speed

An overview of Lobow's SPARK strategy - The Power of ADHD.  Emphasis on the first element of SPEED.  ADHD people are told to slow down, calm down, rest and relax……f*ck that.  Why should we slow down when the world operates fast and we are quicker than 90% of it?  You always want to be first in anything you are trying to achieve whether it be your career, a competition, coming up with as some great idea, or simply asking out that hottie at the bar.

Quick decision making is as easy as breathing for the adhd brain.  Actually, we make our best and most accurate decisions when an immediate answer is required. We have a sense of urgency with everything that is important every day.  That can be frustrating for others but those others will come to us when it is the most vital and they need our help fast.  This is why some of the most successful people with adhd have chosen to use the power of speed to be superman.  They have chosen careers like emts, the military, firefighters, special forces ect…These are all careers that are labeled as “heroic.”  In other businesses, the quick outside the box thinkers are recognized more often.  The natural power of the speed in the adhd brain is respected and looked up to in everything but people with adhd.  WHY?! Stay fast ADHDers.
