Every fan of Will i Am and just about everyone one who follows the latest news on ADHD knows by now that Will i Am has revealed that he has ADHD. I found out from an article published on the online UK Mirror.
I want to point something out about his revelation that is more remarkable than the news itself.
Will i Am stated according to the Mirror: “Music brings control to my thoughts. It’s not escape – it’s just order. I’m making order out of a disorder.” And further stated: “If I was stuck at a different job I’d be horrible and wouldn’t survive.”

How many times have you thought to yourself “I wish I could slow down, relax and take in this moment”?
Have you ever had a truly spectacular day you wish would last forever?
But then the next day comes and your back to racing around, trying to keep appointments (being late for most) and before you know it that spectacular day is only a faint memory.
You know it was a great day and yet, the details of what made it so wonderful become hazy and you consider yourself lucky if you can remember anything clear about it.

A few weeks ago I did something that stunned most of my readers. I gave away Kindle copies of my memoir One Boy’s Struggle.
I teamed up with Story Cartel to give away free copies in exchange for readers’ reviews. That’s it. Nothing more.
And you know what happened?

But something even more unexpected happened.

Every now and then I receive an email asking me if I really have ADHD. It’s a funny question because I’ve fully revealed that I have ADHD in my memoir and I further write about my experiences here on ADDer World.
So why would anyone ask me if I really have ADHD?
The answer is a lot simpler than I expected.
Most people who have asked me this question have read so much about the negative consequences of having ADHD that they’ve come to believe it is impossible for someone with ADHD to accomplish anything.
People with ADHD will fail, they can’t show up, they are always unreliable and unsu(...)
