In this continuation of last week’s episode, Cam and Shelly use examples from their own experiences as adults with ADHD to further illustrate both the difficulty and the importance of getting to cause with ADHD.

We also offer alternatives to the metaphor we’ve been using to illustrate the relationship between cause and effect and the impact of ADHD, and we expand on our existing metaphor to set up for next week’s episode where we bring the metaphor together.
