Tips on How the Good Kind of ADHD Distraction Works

Tips on How the Good Kind of ADHD Distraction Works

The Discovered Treasure We discovered a treasure for our senses, something we will remember for years to come and I would love to share it with you. A couple weekends ago Joan (my wife) and I went out for a nice ride to the Bad Dürkheim wine fest. It’s the largest wine fest in the world. It’s more than a wine fest, though. It’s a carnival with lots of rides and, of course, the most important part, lots of delicious food! Isn’t food the main reason anyone goes to a carnival? Or is that just me? We love carnivals. But let’s not talk about the rides. I’ve already gone there in a previous post and the wimp inside of me doesn’t want to go there again anytime soon. We left early one Saturday morning with the plan of finding a decent parking place. Smart move, right? However, things did not go as planned. Something special happened as [...]

Deliciously Sexy

Deliciously Sexy

What do you long for? What excites you? Have you defined what you want, need and desire… …in someone to love, hold and live with forevermore? What is your innermost desire in another person – specific characteristics which stand above all others – do you know what they are? It’s important; believe me, it’s very, very important. You will never know what you are looking for until you define it. You will never find what you are looking for until you give it a description. They say that if you don’t stand for something that you will fall for anything. It’s the same with finding a true to your heart friend and lover. If you don’t know, you may seek out nearly anyone with a nice smile, pleasant demeanor and perhaps a little flash that shows seemingly genuine interest. And, you will be had! What’s so wrong with that? Have you ever [...]

ADDers Have a Unique and Talented Way of Thinking

ADDers Have a Unique and Talented Way of Thinking

Adult ADHD can be Sexy? Really? We ADDers have a unique way of thinking things through. We have a rare way of putting things together, of finding similarities between things or ideas that at first seem dissimilar or at least unlikely to be joined as an interesting concept. When the ADDer demonstrates how two vastly different notions can be connected the result can illuminate the possiblility of a completely new idea. For ADDers being creative is more about the process of finding associations between things and ideas that come at them day to day at a frenetic pace in order to make sense of the fast paced life around them. ADDers are famous for thinking outside the box when they are asked for solutions to a problem or a new approach to an old idea or way of doing something. And yet, too often this wonderful trait to see, create and do things in unique new ways is disregarded in today’s [...]

Adult ADHD can be Sexy Special Announcements and Release Info

Above is a quick iphone snapshot of the front and back cover of my new book Adult ADHD can be Sexy. The book is not yet available for purchase. At the moment I am considering when that date will be. The photo is only a proof copy, once I send it back approved, then I will have a firmer release date in mind. Soon, my dear friends, soon. Waiting is a very difficult thing for me to do, because I am extremely excited about this book, perhaps more so than any other release of my books. Adult ADHD can be Sexy is like no other book you, or anyone else has ever read about ADHD – I can pretty much guarantee you of that! I have written about subjects and situations that are so sensitive (at least in my opinion) that I have added a warning / disclaimer to it. Therefore, be [...]

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 [...]

How Special Are You? A Real Perspective of Life with Adult ADHD

How Special Are You? A Real Perspective of Life with Adult ADHD

ADHD can test your willpower, but ADHD is not a test of your will. ADHD can test your attitude, but ADHD is not based on attitude. ADHD can test your feelings, cause us to feel ‘lesser than’, but ADHD is not based on feelings. ADHD can cause you to blame yourself, but ADHD is not based on who is at fault. ADHD can make you believe you are not trying hard enough, but ADHD is not based on how much you apply yourself. A lot of us with ADHD start out already at a very young age with big hopes and even bigger dreams. We tend to show so much potential early on, but as the years go by, more often than not, we lose our way. Along our journey, all too common our hopes and our dreams suffer, they get smaller and smaller until they all but vanish, distant and painful [...]

Yes, I am flawed.

Yes, I am flawed.

In love and happiness, for better or worse, in sadness and sorrow. The days go by, countless they pass. I remember the days gone by, the walks late at night and your glistening hair in the moon light. I remember those days. I remember running across a bridge to capture your heart as you captured mine. For better or worse, I may be flawed, but I love you. I never thought there was a love so strong, so powerful. I never thought someone could capture me in rapture and delight, in pain and misery and in happiness and laughter. Life is all of those things, as is love. And love, my dear, is life. Without your love I was lost, with your love I have been found. I am so lucky. For so long I wasn’t. Yes, I am flawed. You know that and you love me anyway. You offer me your [...]

What is achievement – what is success – what do these things mean to someone like you or me, with ADHD?

What is achievement – what is success – what do these things mean to someone like you or me, with ADHD?

Have you ever wondered about what success means to you? I mean, what it really means? Not just the definition, but rather what it feels like to be successful, to achieve something of significant relevance to you? I think for people with ADHD, like me and maybe you, the very word and the meaning of success is alien. We have read about it and heard about it and yet, rarely have we identified with it. Are you successful?  If that seems like a loaded question, it’s not, but I think to a lot of us, it seems that there may be some hidden implication within the question itself. If you say yes, then you are lying and displaying conceitedness! How dare you! Bow your head in proper shame. That’s not the voice from someone else; as a matter of fact it’s not a voice at all. It’s a perception that many [...]

The Gift of ADHD and the Power of Positive Thinking

The Gift of ADHD and the Power of Positive Thinking

I love ADHD I really do! And if you stick with me through this post, you’re going to find out why. It’s amazing what powers I have found within myself and my ADHD traits. I wouldn’t give up my ADHD for anything in the world, not now, no way! When I first found out I had ADHD at the age of 37 and how it had been negatively impacting my life all along I was very upset about it, mostly because the diagnosis came so late and my life and circumstances could have been much improved with an early diagnosis, especially if I had been diagnosed in first or second grade, instead of just being held back and then put in a special education class. In truth, I loved my special education class, I talked about it in my first book “One Boy’s Struggle”, but let me tell you here that being [...]
