  My hair looks good for five minutes, then it starts drooping. I’m sure it’s a combination of high humidity, thinning (aging) hair and a less-than-expert stylist (me). But I’m […]

Estrogen helps ADHD women's brains function better, but when ADDivas enter perimenopause, estrogen waxes and wanes, wreaking havoc on our memories, our concentration and our moods. Estrogen therapy sounds like the answer, but hormone therapy is fraught with potential dangers. That's why I was so happy to discover an app (there's an app for everything!) that helps you narrow down your risk as you decide whether ET is appropriate for you.
