The Neurodivergent Motherhood

Are you overwhelmed with juggling your business, children, and family life?

When you hear the word “Relax” do you respond with “I can’t”?

When you picture what makes you happy, do you draw a blank?

Welcome to the overwhelmed mothers club. If you are like me you are probably wired differently than most!

After reading the Divergent Mind by Jenara Nerenberg, I realized I was neurodivergent. I had a lot of the signs and symptoms and never realized it.

What was amazing to me was that women who mask really, really, well find motherhood extremely overwhelming. They end up drained and burnout because so much of their energy is going towards “looking normal”.

Masking essentially is wearing a mask everyday so no one notices that you are different. It is a safety mechanism and something that women have learned to develop over the centuries. Women are so good at masking that most psychological tests won’t detect that they are wired differently.

I was the queen of masking. I am high functioning and have a lot of amazing achievements under my belt. Star athlete with 94% average all the way through school, had my first degree by 21, and I became a doctor by the age of 25. By 29 I became the Founder of an International Health Institute that is recognized in over 42 different countries.

Perfect was a word that a lot of the people on the outside used to say. The other side of this story is a lot of anxiety attacks, burnout, and a fixation to look a certain way. Constantly living with the fear if they knew the real me I wouldn’t be safe. I always knew I was different. I never fully know how different until after I became a mother.

I can handle 12 course a semester at school, while working out 2 hours a day and holding a job. I can handle running 2 business simultaneously with a social life, and yet when it came to motherhood I broke down.

This is very typical for a lot of women. Moving in with a partner or becoming a mother sends them into sensory overload and that high functioning, overachieving, neurodivergent woman is torn. The ability to mask, take care of herself, transition into motherhood, all while taking care of lifeform that is helpless without her is the last straw.

I have to say after having my son I had a meltdown and a hard time coping. I have since been able to bridge into my greatest passion and become an even more effective doctor. I have rebuilt my business and formed an international institute where I take other high functioning neurodivergent healers and bridge them into Integrative Quantum Medicine.

Adding Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP), Hypnotherapy, Timeline Therapy, and NLP Results coaching has been a gamer changer. I have learned a lot personally and how to start creating my world to suit my individual needs. I have more freedom, passion and joy in my life than I have had ever before. I transform lives on a daily basis.

If you healer at heart and want to make your mark on the world, you NEED to book a zoom call with me. The time is now, step forward into a brighter more playful future!
