Cool interview today with a content creator and health care provider who was recently diagnosed with ADHD, yet survived school without knowing what was going on with her brain! She turned to the internet to let people know that they are not alone, and to be helpful to others! A little more about our guest today in her own words: Karrisa Cardenas is a mental health content creator, Singer songwriter, entrepreneur and the host of her very own podcast called “Finding Your Mind” and of course shares her life through the lens on her YouTube channel. She has faced many challenges in her life along side her ADHD such as depression, anxiety, daddy issues, abuse and so much more. She has used all she has been through as inspiration to keep creating, creating for those who don’t have anyone to go to and are facing these challenges alone. She shares her dark times to bring awareness. Letting those who listen know that its okay not to be okay and there is a light at the end of the tunnel, its just going to take a while to get there. Little back story on my life. I grew up very fast at a young age, had to take care of my mother most of my life and my father was never in the picture. Throughout my younger years I was faced with traumas that shape who i am today, which is why i create content around mental health and ADHD, i never had anyone to tell me what was going on with me so i had to figure it out all by myself. I didn’t have the luxury of doctors to help me. I was simply on my own with my mind. How scary, but also so freaking beautiful. Those were some tough years to go through but man on man am i such a wonderful human because of it. I have had my fair share of jobs such as coaching cheerleading, installing stoves and pools, Retail, Fast food, Waitressing, Barista, Nursing Assistant, Assistant manager of a non profit, and no i didn’t get fired from these jobs i quit because my ADHD was bored after learning everything in those positions. A few fun facts about our guest:
Never reads the last chapter in a book. Chocolate milk + popcorn always. Sits criss cross apple sauce in chairs. From a small town called Kelso. Left handed -which is a super power too. Enjoy!

Welcome to another episode of Faster Than Normal. My name is Peter Shankman. I am thrilled to be joining you today. I am a little more hyper than normal. I just took, literally just came back from a boxing class over at Victory Boxing, Victory Boxing on 37th Street off of 10th Avenue and holy. Um, it’s normally, I, you know, you get one of the coaches one of the day. No, this was the owner who’s a pit, or, Hey, let’s, let’s spar for a bit. Kicked my ass. Into next week. So I am high as a kite on dopamine an adrenaline right now, but oh my God, in three hours, I’m not going to be able to move. He’s like, you know, it’s funny when you’re, when you’re, when you’re boxing and you’re thinking about that next punch, whatever you all you hear are like the punch calls. And he’s like, you know, he’s like, um, jab cross, left hook, right hook upper cut, left upper cut right. And then he throws duck. And you’re staying like an idiot who goes, Oh, is there a duck somewhere? And you could hit in the side of the head. So it has been, it was a fun hour, but oh my God, I’m gonna be hurting in a few. So anyway, with that said, thrilled that you’re here and I want you to meet Karrisa Cardenas, so I might be on Instagram. As you know, as a matter of fact, both my mother and my daughter’s mother, I’m pretty sure called Child Protective Services on me this morning because I videoed with a 360 Insta Cam I video. I put it on top of my helmet and videotaped or, or, or recorded, uh, the 2.7 mile scooter ride that I take every morning when I take my daughter to school and. You didn’t realize how scary that ride is until you look at it on a 360 video and you’re like, Wow, that truck nearly killed me. That other truck nearly killed me. Oh, that’s 17 trucks. Oh, there’s a school bus nearly, and a city bus nearly killed me. So, yeah, I’m pretty sure that that Child Protect service is gonna bust in any minute and, and take my daughter away from you. But either way, it was totally worth it and great video. So I’m on Instagram a lot. I love creating content, and of course I love absorbing content, and Instagram knows this and they treat me, uh, incredibly well because of it. In other words, they, they cater to my wants and my needs because it means I stay on longer like a good little boy, which is exactly what they need for their advertising. Well, that being said, I came across Carissa Cardenas. She’s a mental health content creator. Okay? She’s a singer songwriter, entrepreneur. Hosted a very own podcast called Finding Your Mind, and she shares her life through the lens, through the lens on her YouTube channel. She’s faced a ton of challenges in her life. She has depression, anxiety, and this is her words, Daddy issues, abuse, and so much more. And she’s used all of this as an inspiration to keep creating, to create for those who don’t have anywhere to go and don’t have anyone to talk to and are facing those challenges alone. I love this. She shares her dark times to bring awareness, letting those who listen know that it’s okay not to be okay. And even though it might take a long time to get there, there is a light at the end of the tunnel, she tells me, I’ll talk to you about her backstory. I’ll ask her about it and I’ll let her speak in a second but she, she has a really interesting backstory, um, that has shaped who she is. And, and I think it’s wonderful. And she, she put fun, I love when people do this in her bio, she put a bunch of fun facts. So we’re gonna read the, the last five minutes, we’re gonna two minutes. We’re gonna read those out and have her define those. Karrisa, welcome to Faster Than Normal!
[00:04:24] Karrisa: Hello.
[00:04:26] Peter: I am thrilled that you’re here. I love the videos you create. They’re so honest, they’re so straightforward, and I, I first found you because I’m, I look another ADHD creator and I’m like, Goddammit, another ADHD creator who’s getting like 20 times as many likes as me, and this is pissing me the hell off. So obviously we’ll talk about how you’re, you know, what your, what your system is because you’re, you’re creating incredible content. But what originally drew you to say, Hey, I’m gonna tell my story in public and, and, and love it or hate it here it is?
[00:04:54] Karrisa: Uh, well, to be honest, uh, in 2015 is kind of where it all started and, uh, I started making video content on Facebook actually. And, uh, I started that because I was very alone growing up. And I faced all these traumas and these issues throughout my life that I just felt so alone and I didn’t go to therapy and I didn’t know what was wrong with me. Everyone told me that I like, had issues and I was so, you know, angry and all these things. So I just felt very alone and very scared. So I decided one day to pick up the camera and, well, it’s actually my phone. It was my, I think it was with my flip phone to be honest, and I started recording on it. And I was like, You know what, I’m just gonna share like a diary. So I sat there and I shared all of my, uh, daddy issues and my anxiety and all that stuff in like different video forms. And this was when I was like, what, 18, 19. So I was like going through it and I, I recorded everything in my vehicle and and I sat there and I was like, you know, I’m gonna do this for other people because I never had help and I never, you know, got anyone. Relate to, and so I just decided one day I was like, I’m, I’m gonna do it. I’m gonna sit here and I’m gonna scarily share everything that I’ve been through, even though it might be tmi. I just need someone else to hear it.
[00:06:18] Peter: And it sort of blew up from there.
[00:06:20] Karrisa: Yeah, so it went from that and then of course, you know, doubts and insecurities got into into my bloodstream and it decided to, uh, make me not post for a while. And then I decided, okay, this is really what I wanna do with my life. So I decided to start a podcast instead cuz it was just so much easier than having to edit video and I always have to look nice on video, so I just decided to do it, podcast, and then it started to slowly take off and then it did randomly and I was like, Holy moly, this is it. Uh, I really gotta, I really gotta do this now. You know? So it was really awesome.
[00:06:55] Peter: You know, it’s interesting, let talk for a second about you stopped creating content when you started getting like, what haters and things like that.
[00:07:01] Karrisa: Yeah, I, I stopped as people would just tell they were ugly. They were so ugly.
[00:07:07] Peter: Now here’s the thing, I mean, that’s not, that’s never changed. I mean, I, I posted that video this morning of the ride to school, and then I went and into my boxing class and I came out and they’re like, About 20 comments and at least four of them were like, Oh, I’m never coming to New York. Fuck New York. There’s a, you know, it’s full of Democrats. Okay, well, you know, you’re obviously meet people like that. And then you get the, Oh wow, you know, we gonna put your kid in the harm’s way in the middle of the time, square traffic. I’m like, Okay, I’m much better scooter than you, whatever. But, you know, I, I feel, I feel like I’m 50, right? I, I’ve had 20 years of giving corporate keynote speeches in front of 20,000 people where I. I’m still kind of, I’m mostly over the haters, but you never truly get over them. You’re a lot younger than me. Tell the audience what you did to get past it. Because that the haters and the, and the, and the, the, the, um, trolls, they kill about 95% of the, of the people who wanna create content and they just stop. And they don’t wanna do that. And they, they, they leave a lot of stuff, beautiful stuff on the table, never wind up doing.
[00:08:04] Karrisa: Well, uh, yeah. I also was doing YouTube too, so I got all those like, hate comments. You should die. You sh you’re ugly. You know, all of those beautiful things at a young age. So, um, I just kind of sat with myself and I really focused on what I wanted to do as a person and who wanted to be, and I had to realize that no one else’s fucking opinion, excuse my language really mattered. And I had really had. Hone into myself and really believe in myself and really just not care at all about what anyone else has to say and just hyper focus on that and not even, I didn’t look for comments like probably the first two years I got back into it because I was like, I don’t need their opinions, whether it be good or not. I never replied to anyone’s comments. I just focused on what I wanted to do.
[00:08:52] Peter: Let me ask you a question if you don’t mind sharing how old are you?
[00:08:54] Karrisa: I’m 28.
[00:08:56] Peter: That is, I gotta give you such props for that because I remember I started my first company at 27, 26. Mm-hmm. and I sold it, it was a PR firm. I sold it at 29 to a larger agency. And I remember even at 29 thinking like the news went out that it was sold and there were all, you know, Oh, he probably couldn’t, he probably just sold it for like, for nothing cuz you know, he couldn’t, couldn’t keep it up. And his parents probably like, you know, gave him money to start it and it. I remember, I remember like it was yesterday, reading that comment and being like, Wow, I must be nothing. You know? And, and this took years. It took years. I probably, I’m 50 now. Maybe, maybe a couple years ago I really stopped caring as much as I can. But you’re still gonna care a little bit. I mean, it’s really, I give you a lot of credit for that. It’s really impressive. At your age to be able to get past that.
[00:09:42] Karrisa: Yeah. It’s, it’s a difficult thing though. And I mean, there it is always gonna be here. Like, it’s even gonna get worse the bigger you get. Like it’s just the way the world works. Yeah. But since I kinda, I grew up in, in social media, to be honest, uh, I started just to see, you know, these empty comments I like to say, because, you know, those people are going through stuff on their own and they’re just using, you know, their hate towards you for comfort in a way. And it’s just, it’s an ugly thing. But I’ve, I put my. I mean, I put myself in their shoes to make sure like, Hey, listen, you, you know, they’re probably suffering from anxiety, traumas, like all of these things. And you know, they’re just hating. They shouldn’t, but they’re just hating. Cause that’s all they know.
[00:10:20] Peter: Right. Don’t, don’t wish anger on them. Wish, wish, wish, healing.
[00:10:24] Karrisa: Yeah. That’s, that’s just what I do.
[00:10:26] Peter: That’s impressive. Again, that’s really impressive. I still, I mean, I wish healing on them, but I still go to the boxing gym and beat the show to some bags every you, every day. Of course. Gotta do that.
[00:10:33]Karrisa: Of course.
[00:10:34] Peter: So, let’s talk about the kind of content you create when you, when you’re posting mental health. I mean, there are a ton of mental health, you know, content creators out there and not, not the majority of them are not getting anywhere near as well as you. Um, So do you listen to your audience? Do you take advice from your audience? Do you, do you, do you listen to their feedback and incorporate that into future posts? How do you come up with your ideas?
[00:10:54] Karissa: Uh, I honestly haven’t done that. Like I get a lot of, uh, messages about saying, you know, like all the things that I’ve posted that have helped them or, you know, opened their eyes or something like that, which is so amazing. But I kind of just focus on what I feel at the time. So I’ll be sitting, let’s just say I’m at, sitting at my desk and I just have this urge to talk about a specific topic. I’ll just do it. At random. Like, I haven’t got to the point where I, like, I take feedback yet just because I want to, I want to stay with this momentum that I’ve got, and usually feedback with my ADHD and everything makes my brain go freaking nuts. Uhhuh. Like, I just, I can’t focus. So then I’m like, Oh crap. Did I say the right thing? Did I do the right thing for these people? Or they, you know, So I just hyperfocus on like what I need to say first, and then of course I, I listen to you know, comments later down the road and kind of incorporated into the next content I do create. But I mean, just hyper focus on, you know, how I’m feeling that day, to be honest.
[00:11:53] Peter: How often are you posting, uh, daily? So that brings up another interesting question. You, you said yourself, you’re a child of social media. You grew up in this era. Um, you know, know, I, I thank God every day that camera phones and things of that nature didn’t exist when I was in high school, I’d probably see somebody in jail and, you know, for you. You’re, I guess it is perfectly normal that everything you do mm-hmm. is public. Yeah. Now, but here’s a question. It looks like everything of what you do is public to what percent of things that you do are public? Like, you know, I’m sure you still have a private life that you don’t necessarily share.
[00:12:27] Karrisa:Yeah. Uh, I would say I only share about 10%.
[00:12:31] Peter: And how do you, do you set up boundaries for yourself so that you don’t overshare or that you don’t, You know, I, I remember probably 15 years ago writing a multi tweet Twitter rant, and this is before you could like, collect, connect, the tweets was much harder. And it was basically me bitching about something that I, I really didn’t need to be bitching about, and I sent it and learned a valuable lesson that night. Right. You don’t necessarily need to share every damn thing. Yeah. So how are you, how are you aware of that? What are you doing to make sure that you’re, you know, okay, this is something that might be interesting, but I’m not gonna sit here and bitch for the next three hours about whatever.
[00:13:04] Karrisa: Uh, to be honest, I . I wish I had more of a filter. Uh, but I don’t, And so the only thing that I really set boundaries towards is talking about politics, to be honest, because, you know, it’s just one of those things that I just don’t wanna get into on, you know, the internet because I would just get wrecked to be honest. So I just kinda set boundaries with that and I just, Almost everything. I am very open. I’m an open book, and if people hate it, they hate it because there’s, there’s people out there that are suffering through things that, you know, if they don’t have the connection with other people that they can talk to. So it’s like, I’m gonna share all the ugly parts and this is more so when I. Was younger. So I’m sharing all of those issues, the abuse and stuff so that it could connect to the right people so that they can live a another day, to be honest. But, um, other than that, the boundaries I set are just political .That’s it.
[00:14:02] Peter: Tell me about, so you’ve had several jobs. Yes. Right. And then I love this coaching, cheerleading, installing stoves and pools, retail, fast food, waitressing, barista, nursing assistant, assistant manager of a nonprofit. And no, and you make it clear, No, I didn’t get fired from these jobs. I quit them all because my ADHD was bored after learning everything in those positions. So, yeah. And I get that. I had one job in my life and I’m like, No. But, um, you know, after, after the sort of magic wears off, right? At some point you gotta make a living. Yep. So what then?
[00:14:33] Karrisa: Uh, well, I, I guess I don’t really share this, but I will. Um, so I do a lot of content creation, and I do get paid from all of that stuff, but, uh, I, I do have a core job, which is taking care of my mom, so I. Right now I take care of my mom and so I’m a certified nursing assistant. Okay. And that has been the, you know, the bill paying money, the I’m gonna be okay and I can step back and work on all of these things and Gotcha. You know, it, it’s, it’s a blessing to be honest, cuz not everyone gets to do this. Oh, totally. Or does a lot of people have to take care of their mom at a young age. So, I mean, like, that’s kind of, you know, where, where I’m at, like, I don’t work, other jobs anymore. I just create and it’s so beautiful and I’m so blessed about it.
[00:15:19] Peter: You know, it’s interesting. I, um, I, I, I look at my, I I look at a lot of kids who are, who are, you know, influencers, whatever, whatever they wanna call themselves. I hate that term. And, um, you know, they’re, they’re, they’re creating all this kind of thousands and tens and thousand likes and thousand likes. And occasionally they, they, they do a partnership with someone or whatever. And I know the, I know the industry. I know damn well. Yes. They’re not making enough for a Starbucks once a day. No. Right. With that. And yet you’ll never see that, You know, you’ll never, you’ll never, uh, hear about the fact that, you know, they’re, they’re also working, uh, you know, 8:00 PM to 4:00 AM as a security guard or doing whatever just to pay the rent. Yep. Right. It’s like the, um, Uh, the real versus Instagram, whether, you know, the, the, the Instagram is like everything is beautiful and then the camera pans over to the other side of the room where it’s just like a mess. Yep. Right? And so it, it’s interesting because you have a lot of people who are out there trying to create content and I would never tell anyone not to do it and give it a shot, kick ass on it. But I would say have a backup plan. Yeah, I, And it seems, it seems like you managed to pull that off. You do have a backup plan.
[00:16:17] Karrisa: Yes, I always do. I think it’s just a security thing for me because, uh, growing up I didn’t come from money, so having a backup plan has always been a thing. Like, I’ve been to college twice. I’ve been, you know, just thinking, Okay, what am I gonna do if this doesn’t pan out? What if I’m, you know, like, but I have to also believe in it a hundred percent, or I’m not gonna give it my all. And I. So it’s kind of like that fine line where you’re like, Yes, I need to pay my bills, so I will work a nine to five, but I need to bust my ass doing the rest of this.
[00:16:46] Peter: Right. Are you a, um, are you a night owl? Yes. . I noticed that I, I saw the email came in around 2:00 AM so I figured, um,
[00:16:58] Karrisa: Yeah, Sorry about that, heh.
[00:16:58] Peter: Why do you have to eat? And this, this goes to the, your last paragraph. Why do you have to have chocolate milk when you eat popcorn? That’s a weird combination?
[00:17:04] Karrisa: Oh, . Well, okay, see, Um, I don’t know where it came from. I’ve always been a, a child of weird combinations and, uh, I just, I can’t have popcorn without it because I don’t know. I need to wash it down with something sweet and chocolate like so amazing. And when you pair the two, it it hands down the best. No one would try it. No one ever tried it. They’re like,
[00:17:26] Peter: I’m gonna try. I’m totally gonna try it tonight actually. I have some of my kids chalk the milk. I’m totally gonna try it.
[00:17:30] Karrisa: There you go. I love that. Lemme know.
[00:17:32] Peter: And by the way, you’re lefthanded as am I, as our most amazing people, so
[00:17:36] Karrisa: for real ?That’s awesome actually.
[00:17:38] Peter: I love that. I love it. Always drives my boxing coach crazy cuz he always says he, he takes his original position and I go left. God damn it. He has to switch around. Yep. So, so I guess I’ll, I’ll, I’ll close it with this. I wanna be respectful of your time when you, you know, you’re creating content and putting stuff out there in a world, especially in social, that isn’t always that nice if ever, Right? Mm-hmm. and looking at the stuff that you’re talking about, which is mental health, you know, from the beginning, um, tells people that yeah, you’ve had your share of hits in, in your life. You’ve taken some hits, you’ve had some issues, you’ve had some problems. Yet your goal in all of this, it’s still to help people who, who are never able to get help for this on their own. Yeah. And that’s really kinda altruistic. Right. Most people are kind of like, No, fuck you, man. I’m gonna get mine. And, and, and you know, I’m gonna get it. I mean, we live in a world right now where, where 15 governors are trying to stop, um, uh, student loan debt cancellation because everyone should pay their own share. I’m like, Well, that’s a dick move, right? Yeah. So, so you’re sitting here going, No, I wanna help people out. And that’s the exact same reason I, I wrote Faster Than Normal and do this podcast, but there aren’t a lot of us. So at the end of the day, Your value system is, is pretty unique, right? You’re sitting there going, No, I wanna help people. And and does that come from anyone? Did that come from what, what, You know, based on, on the history that you told me about yourself that you shared, um, it doesn’t sound like you were helped a lot. So where’d that come from?
[00:19:05] Karrisa: Uh, that’s exactly why is because I wasn’t helped a lot. I wasn’t guided and I wasn’t told that what I was going through was normal or you know, cuz my ADHD was, I, I did, I just got diagnosed with it in 2020. So like I didn’t have help realizing that, oh my God. Like I went through school and stuff thinking I was so stupid because I learned a different way than other people, but I never knew that, so no one told me. And like I just had to go through the motions of doing things alone. So when I got a little older to understand what I was actually facing. And I started doing research on my own. I was like, there are so many other Me’s out there that need help that don’t have the finances for it. And I was like, maybe I can just share some of my stories and it could help. And it’s just helped me too because it helps me get out of my head and it creates this community of amazing people that need help. And I’m just here and I’m just like, wanna give everybody a hug? And I just want people to be better mentally and understand that it’s okay not to be okay.
[00:20:04] Peter: Yeah. I love that. I love that. Very, very cool. Very, very cool. How can people to find you?
[00:20:10] Karrisa: Uh, they can find me on Instagram at Karissa Marie Official. You can find me also on YouTube as Karissa Marie and also my podcast, Finding Your Mind.

We will see you next week. ADHD as Karissa has blatantly showed us today, is a gift, not a curse. And I will say that until the day I die. Stay tuned, keep in touch. We’ll see you guys next week. Stay safe.
