The 1 Shocking Truth About ADHD Everyone Must Learn
Thumbnail image for The 1 Shocking Truth About ADHD Everyone Must Learn

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? One Boy’s Struggle became the second most downloaded book for Story Cartel EVER! Pretty cool for a book about ADHD, don’t you think? But something even more unexpected happened. Most the reviews posted on Amazon for the free copy were by people who do not have ADHD. Go ahead, click here to check for yourself. I was surprised to say the least. Nearly all the reviewers who don’t have ADHD agreed that they learned the shocking truth about ADHD: IT IS REAL. One of the non-ADHD reviewers was so taken with the story and the reality of ADHD she wrote a […]

I am proud to present the ultimate ADHD support group guide written by Sharon St. John, LPC! It’s free, so download it now by clicking here. (Best viewed after downloading to your computer – right click and choose ‘save as’.)   Okay, I added the ‘ultimate’ because it excites me that a book has been written to assist people with using my book One Boy’s Struggle: A Memoir in a support group setting, (or, to be used individually with one’s therapist).  Over the last few years I have received many emails from support group facilitators around the world, from the United States to as far away as Australia, letting me know how they have used One Boy’s Struggle to assist their members in coming to grips with living with ADHD, and to some degree viewing ADHD in a more positive light.   Several ADHD support group facilitators have suggested I […]

An online Book Review that touched My Heart!

An online Book Review that touched My Heart!

Today I found an online review of my book that touched me so deeply and emotionally. This is part of what drives me to continue writing, to be a voice and meet new people each and every day. To help a mother and daughter bond through the words I wrote, what a humbling treasure that is. Cixous39, if you happen to read this: Thank you! Seems we have helped each other. I hope you don’t mind that I copied your review of One Boy’s Struggle: A Memoir here: What makes this book special? On a personal level, my Mom and I BONDED over it. While reading it, my mother found me crying and asked what was wrong. I told her what this memoir was about, and let her read it. Once she finished, we cried together. We also laughed because it helped make sense of my own experiences with AD/HD, which […]

Wow, what an overwhelming response from the new PDF I sent out yesterday! Thank you to all of you who responded with comments and suggestions!! Okay, I changed up the document because many of you had nearly the same suggestions. I included some of the more ‘controversial‘ articles and what seem the current favorites: Is it ADHD or bad luck & Is Sex important to someone with ADHD?. Those of you that wrote me mentioned these articles would make you more likely to share the file with others. I also included the quote that I have on my blog – it was interesting that several mentioned it; I didn’t realize it was so popular 🙂 Here’s the updated file: ADHD_A_Real_Life_Story_Bryan_Hutchinson (download) Please download the file to your computer by right clicking and using ‘save target’ or however you do it.

A Brilliant Book Review – Is it ADHD or Highly Sensitive Individuals?

A Brilliant Book Review – Is it ADHD or Highly Sensitive Individuals?

Jenna Forest, author of the memoir Help Is On Its Way recently read my personal life story in my book One Boy’s Struggle: A Memoir – Surviving Life with Undiagnosed ADD and she has posted a review about it on her website empowermentsource.blogspot.com One Boy’s Struggle: A Memoir has been blessed with numerous positive reviews, for which I am thankful, humbled and honored. Jenna’s review is one of the most understanding views of what I had envisioned for my story to be and is. Everyone takes from my story what has the greatest meaning to them, at the moment they are reading it. I believe because Jenna and I relate so very well and have similar backgrounds, she literally stepped into my mind, – no, even further, – into my soul, while reading my story.  Her insight and understanding is uncanny.  Check out Jenna’s review: (Excerpt) Is ADD/ADHD real or […]

My personal book about ADHD, the ADDer World websites and me 1 year later

My personal book about ADHD, the ADDer World websites and me 1 year later

Sometimes it is nice to take a moment and reflect on things. ADDer World is now a year old (ADDer World community only 2 months) and my book “One Boy’s Struggle: A Memoir – Surviving Life with Undiagnosed ADD” has been on the open market for just over 6 months. I sit here, close my eyes and reflect. Where was I in my quest just over a year ago, what hopes did I have and what did I imagine the future would hold? Seems to me I was living on a prayer (to quote the inspirational band Bon Jovi). I have a very vivid imagination, it is incredible, the things I can see and the things I can sense. But who knew? I didn’t. Fears, anxiety, hope and desire – terrible nightmares and wonderful, splendid wishful dreams. Nobody knows what tomorrow will bring. And yet, with a little hope and trust in the […]

Give my book away!

That’s right. Well, at least loan it out. If you have read my book and your copy is sitting around somewhere, please take it with you on your travels today and give it to someone. If your a parent, take it with you to your child’s school and give it to a teacher or another parent. If you have ADHD, please consider passing it on to someone you know with ADHD. If you read it and you have no connection to ADHD, but relate to the book of a misunderstood and confused child, please pass it on to anyone who you think may read it. And, ask the people you pass it on to, to also, please pass it on to others. Please, take a moment today, or sometime this week, to pass on my book to someone you know who would be interested and caring enough to pass it on too. Thank you, Bryan
