  1. Hi Emma, I hope you’re well. I have just read your book better late than never. I’m impressed as Ive read so many on late diagnosis of adhd and I feel its the best one Ive read. I am studying a psychology masters currently, but also have a podcast and YouTube channel on ADHD. It is called ADHD DARA. I only started it a few months ago but have been getting some great feedback and messages saying my videos have helped them. I have three podcasts on there as well and I would love the opportunity to chat with you on skype or zoom for my podcast. I have been through the grinder over the past 10 years. Jail, rehabs, homelessness, depression, PTSD, but after I was diagnosed and finally found the right medication I am on the up! Thank God. Please feel free to check my YouTube channel out. Here is a link and let me know if you would like to come on the podcast. There is no fixed time or date, but I believe we have similar goals in life and I would love to talk to you. Thanks once again for such a fantastic and science based book. It’s awesome. Dara. Here is my first podcast with my Dad

    1. Thanks Dara – I have had a look at your You Tube channel and can see why it is helping others and getting suc
      great feedback. I would love to be on it. I finish my work in school tomorrow, school is out for the summer so feel free to connect via email at emma.mahony@btinternet.com and we can correspond. Warm wishes.
      Emma
