Before I was first diagnosed with ADHD I had written thousands of want to be novels and other stuff, but not any of them were complete. Since diagnosis I wrote my book “One Boy’s Struggle: A Memoir”, started my blog ADDer World and I have recently created an online community for those with ADHD or are related in some way to someone with ADHD. Being diagnosed with ADHD was liberation from a mind obsessed with blame, lots of self-blame for a great many things, a major one is for not finishing things which were important to me.
I receive an abundant amount of emails and a great majority of them are from people wanting to know how I over came my life long struggles and what it meant to me to be diagnosed. There is no short answer for these questions. I knew my story would resonate with many people, well, maybe I didn’t realize just how many, it’s quite a bit more than I ever imagined – and that is the reason I wrote my book. No, I don’t want to get out of writing anyone back and answering questions. I simply do not want to give anyone the short answers which will only raise more questions and the amount of emails makes it nearly impossible to write back to everyone. The answers can be found in my book – the answers are thought out and clarified which will give you the full scope of my experience from a very personal, real and raw perspective. Yes, being diagnosed with ADHD was indeed liberating for me, in a way only my book explains best. Order a copy of my book either at BBOTW or at AMZN and find out just how alike we all really are in the world of ADHD.
