ABOUT.com Peer Relationships Interview

ADD.ABOUT.com Keath Low has become one of my most enthusiastic supporters, and like many of you, she has been touched by my life’s story presented to the world through my memoir “One Boy’s Struggle: A Memoir – Surviving Life with Undiagnosed ADD”. In my memoir I talk a lot about peer relationships, how they affected me and what I learned. Keath Low interviewed me recently for ABOUT.com concerning peer relationships. I am pleased to know that what I have learned about ADHD and using my hindsight of my life’s situations is helping others. You can read the interview here. 

Keath enjoyed my book so much that she wrote a personal review about it:

By Keath Low: 

Bryan Hutchinson’s life is inspiring and his message is one of hope, forgiveness, and of moving forward. In his book, One Boy’s Struggle: A Memoir – Surviving Life with Undiagnosed ADD, Bryan takes us through the struggles he experienced as a child and adult living life with undiagnosed ADD. His story is raw and painful at times, yet it is also heartwarming and optimistic.

Bryan spent a great deal of his life feeling less-than. He turned his frustrations inward – not understanding why he felt things differently, why so many aspects of his life seemed harder than those around him, why relationships were difficult, why he felt so isolated and self-critical. Once he was finally diagnosed and in treatment for his ADD, his life took a tremendous turn for the better.

Finally, he began to understand and appreciate the way his mind worked. He became more aware of and grew to value his great strengths. He was able to evaluate his experiences in more realistic ways, understand his feelings and frustrations, and overcome the self-defeating aspects of his life that had plagued him.

Bryan’s story reiterates the importance of increased awareness and education about the impact ADD/ADHD can have in our lives. It emphasizes the dramatic improvement treatment can bring to a person’s quality of life. Many will relate to his experiences and be moved by his positive approach. A great book!
