We have two special guests this week with great stories. First Chopper served duty as a Navy Seal dog on the battlefield, sniffing out bombs and saving lives, and returned home with his handler to work as a therapy dog to help him ajust to civilian life. The story is being told this month in a film on the Smithsonian channel. Trevor Maroshek, Founder of the Navy Seal Dog Foundation will share the story of his film and dog Chopper, as well as how he finds service dogs for veterans.
Lori Hensley is the Director of Operations for the Coalition to Unchain Dogs in North Carolina, which helps convince people to get their dogs off chains by building them fences, helping with food and vet bills. Keeping dogs on chains 24/7 is a wide practice in the South, and Lori tells us how she is changing the mind of people by offering a solution not judgement. She was recently given an award by the ASPCA in recognition of her work.

As is the case with many people with ADHD, Charley Burt is successful, smart, funny, and compassionate. But she doesn’t just have ADHD. Companion conditions typically co-exist with ADHD, and in Charley’s case, her special genetic make-up includes Hashimoto's Thyroiditis, Fibromyalgia, and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome as well.
In our conversation we also touch on how familial suicide has impacted both of us and fueled our passion to share with others the struggles involved in all forms of mental illness.
You’ll surely enjoy Charley’s warmth and good nature as you listen to her share stories of self-discovery and self-disclosure mindful that these are both still a work in progress. She’s untangling what’s what. Considering that all of her, as she calls them, acronyms, have overlapping symptoms, determining what physical ailment is contributing to which mental issue is a puzzle she’s determined to solve.
In fact, through the encouragement of a geneticist, she is in the process of setting up genetic mutation testing through 23andme! Personally, I can’t wait to find out what more information she’ll find out and share. She’s promised to come back and give us an update but don’t wait until then. For more about her journey go to embracingadultadhd.wordpress.com and subscribe. She writes almost every day something about her ADHD and its effects on her life and relationships.
You can reach her on Twitter @CharleyBurt1 or visit her blog.

Replay * How do you feel when people ask, "Doesn't everybody have ADHD?" It's a question often considered insulting by people with ADHD; after all, the answer is obviously no and it belittles the diagnosis, insinuating that ADHD isn't real.
But is it always intended to deny ADHD's legitimacy? What if the person asking the question believes it's real because even his own son has it?
In this episode, we explore this topic and talk out loud the process of answering the questions found on the Adult ADHD Self-Report Scale (ASRS-v1.1) Symptom Checklist.
What does it mean if you don't fit neatly into the box of ADHD or non-ADHD? Listen and find out.

I'm always considering how things look through the ADHD lens. It's the foundation of my blog, See in ADHD, and the concept behind this show.
Join me today with cohost, Rene Brooks of blackgirllostkeys.com, as we discuss a myriad of topics and muse over just what is the ADHD effect on each...
We begin by tackling a big ADHD dilemma, creating routines and sticking to them.
Next, we explore how to stay motivated and determined to achieve your goals when things aren't going the way you planned.
Also, we talk about ADHD curiosity and how it affects family members who don't have ADHD themselves.
How does ADHD relate to your concerns?
Call-ins are welcome!
About Pet Therapy
A hand reaches out, a wagging tail approaches, and an elderly face breaks into a smile. It's a scene that's increasingly common in the Helena Valley, thanks to volunteers from the Helena Chapter of Intermountain Therapy Animals. Activity directors and health care professionals report that visiting pets reach nursing home residents, hospital patients, retirement home residents and adult day care participants in ways that other therapeutic activities can't.
The contact may be brief, but it brightens the entire day or week, especially for those who have had pets in the past. In some cases, an animal's visit is transforming. Shy, withdrawn, or depressed people find themselves in animated conversation, angry people relax, and those with memory lapses share detailed recollections of pets they lived with years before. Visiting pets have reached autistic children, stroke victims, Alzheimer's patients, and other "unreachables." Even when nothing dramatic happens, pet visits are important changes of pace for facility residents, bringing excitement, affection, comfort, physical contact and joy.
In addition, to providing companionship (called Animal Assisted Activity), visiting pets sometimes participate in a facility's therapy program. In Animal Assisted Therapy, a dog might stand while a patient brushes him order to exercise specific arm muscles, or a cat might visit a depressed patient to encourage conversation, or someone in speech therapy might give commands to a dog that does tricks or retrieves objects. Anyone who loves animals is likely to work harder and feel more motivated when one is part of the therapy team.
Diabetes is on the rise in dogs and cats, and Dr Ruth MacPete tells us what this means for pet parents. You will also meet a young lady, Sara Carson who has taught her dog Hero over 300 performing tricks and is touring North America, and Laura Roach from Camp Bow Wow gives us some training tips.
Richard Nelson from Forever Pet Care tells of his unique service that guarantees your dog or cat will be taken care of after your death.
