KC Davis: Self-care & keeping house with ADHD

Episode 82 with KC Davis.

“We work so much harder just to do the simple things everybody else can do automatically.”

KC Davis is a licensed professional therapist, author, speaker, and the incredible maven behind the mental health platform Struggle Care. She is also the casual genius behind the TikTok account @domesticblisters, where her accessible advice on self-care, self-compassion, cleaning and organizational systems that actually work, has amassed nearly 1.5 million followers.

KC’s compassionate and practical approach to self and home care for those dealing with mental health, physical illness, and hard seasons of life has also been summarized in her book, “How to Keep House While Drowning.” The revamped, expanded version comes out tomorrow April 26, as does the audiobook read by the author.

KC Davis began her therapy journey at 16 when she entered treatment for drug addiction and mental health issues. After getting sober she became a speaker and advocate for mental health and recovery. Professionally, KC has worked most of her career in the field of addiction in roles such a therapist, consultant, and executive director. She lives in Houston with her husband and two daughters. 

KC and I talk all about how her TikTok audience convinced her to get an ADHD diagnosis and how the app is helping to change the face of what it looks like to be neurodivergent.

We also talk about the shame and guilt so many of us feel around domesticity, and the reasons why neurodivergent brains can struggle to stay on top of cleaning and organizing. And we also talk about the cleaning strategies she created for her family that went viral and have changed the lives of so many women, myself included.
