The Real Problem with ADHD and Success and Happiness

The Real Problem with ADHD and Success and Happiness

Have you noticed that ADHD and Success and Happiness are not synonymous? Why aren’t they? (      ) Between the above parentheses is all the space allotted to you for giving an explanation as to why ADHD and Success and happiness are not synonymous!  Doesn’t seem like that is a fair enough amount of space? Then read on. Since we all love rules so much, here are some rules for this exercise: 1st: The first rule is that you may only go by your personal definition of success and happiness. (If you don’t have one, that could pose as a problem, but perhaps this assignment will free you enough to create your very own, personal definition.) 2nd: The very important second rule is that you may not identify success and happiness with what others would have you identify them with or as. This means you may not use rules (this rule is […]

The Beauty of Writing – Lessons in Writing

The Beauty of Writing – Lessons in Writing

“Dancing with the feet is one thing, but dancing with the heart is another.” Author unknown One of the most frequent inquiries that I get is about writing. It’s a funny thing, writing, you don’t have to be very good at it to do it and I am not very good at it.

Just another Call to Arms! Adult ADHD

Just another Call to Arms! Adult ADHD

Have you noticed that adult ADHD is making more news lately? As a matter of fact I just read that approximately 65% of children with ADHD will grow into adults with ADHD, or rather ADD.  I personally suspect that the percentage is much higher. It’s impossible to know how many adults are wondering around undiagnosed, but it’s estimated to be in the millions. I was diagnosed when I was 37 and in recent years I have met a remarkable number of adults diagnosed at a later age, some cases much later. This of course lends to the belief that ADHD isn’t real. How can so many people have it? I don’t know, but we do. Adult ADHD is about as much a myth as Childhood ADHD. There is no myth about ADHD except for those who blow it off because they do not understand it.  Most people who don’t know much about me […]
