Truly a Real Life View of Living in the Adder World

Over the next few weeks I will be reposting some blog posts from members of the new interactive website sanctuary. On the new interactive ADDer World members can text message each other, write blogs, participate in forums and post pictures, videos and music and so much more! Membership and participation is free! Our site is rich with special people, such as: Adult ADDers, parents of ADDers, spouses and friends of ADDers who all share personal experiences and suggestions with each other. Our membership roster also includes ADD ADHD experts, such as: Doctors, psychologists, professional bloggers, journalists and even certified life coaches and therapists. The interactive ADDer World may be new, but it is growing very fast!

To give you an idea of what types of blogs and information you can find, I am reposting some of my favorite blogs from members, which you could normally not read unless you are a member. These are reposted with permission – make sure you join so you can read all that is available and post your own stories and insights. 

This first reposting is from Steve, not simply because it is a review he posted about my book, which it is, and he shares a bit about his experience so far on AW:

Truly a Real Life View of Living in the Adder World  

I am truly grateful for Bryan writing this book and for me to have found it. For many years I lived with undiagnosed ADD, never understanding why, but always knowing that I was different, and or why I did things differently than other people all my life.

When I was finally diagnosed with ADD it was a tremendous relief to know there really was a reason. I had learned the basics through talking to professionals as well as reading the various books available on the subject. This book is very different from all the basic texts that are available. You can only learn so much at school from reading textbooks. It is not until you finish school and go out into the real world when you realized how it all applies.

Bryan’s book is the real world. The ADDer World so to speak. The other books show you the cause but Bryan’s shows you the effect.

I highly recommend this book to be read by all people living with ADD/ADHD. It will help you understand the impact that this disorder has actually had on you through your life. I really had no clue myself before reading this book. It is also really nice to know that we are not alone with our struggles. If you did not have hope before, you will finish this book realizing that there is definitely hope for an incredibly productive enjoyable future for you.

Even more so however, I recommend this to parents and teachers dealing with children with ADD/ADHD. No one can ever truly understand what it is like to go through life having ADD/ADHD unless they have it themselves. This book shows you the truth dead on, and most likely will be the closest you will ever get to really understand what your kids are dealing with on a daily basis, in both their minds, as well in the world around them.

I also highly recommend checking out Bryan’s website: It is a safe harbor to connect with, and understand others dealing with ADD/ADHD. From my personal experience I can pretty much guarantee that Bryan will personally answer any question you may have if you contact him.
