Exclusive Interview: Dr. Charles Parker on ADHD Medication Rules and Gluten

Exclusive Interview: Dr. Charles Parker on ADHD Medication Rules and Gluten

Today’s interview is with renowned neuroscience consultant Dr. Charles Parker, the author of ADHD Medication Rules. He’s updated his informative book about ADHD medication and will soon be publishing a paperback version. Personally, I think a paperback version will be great, because it will be easy to flip through. Or you can just call me old fashioned. In the interview below, Dr. Parker answers several interesting questions from Gluten to talking about the “Myth” that Big Pharma created ADHD so they could sell drugs! (You already know how I feel about ADHD Myths, so it is always nice when one is debunked!) Dr. Parker is also the author of the CorePsych blog. Check it out as he updates us on the latest brain science. Enjoy the interview and if you’d like further clarification or have other questions feel free to post in the comments. I am sure Dr. Parker will stop by. Interview Dr. Charles Parker: Q: You wrote the New ADHD Medication […]

The First Rule of ADHD – NOT to talk about ADHD and why we should Change it

The First Rule of ADHD – NOT to talk about ADHD and why we should Change it

  The first rule of ADHD is not to talk about ADHD. You may be aware of this unspoken, super-secret rule, and you may have already broken it several times. However, there are thousands of people who live by this rule out of necessity, out of fear of judgment, and out of fear of reprisal. You may walk past, work with, or study with people that have ADHD and never know it, unless they break the rule and talk about their ADHD. What if someone you know as a good person and seems to do well told you that he or she has ADHD? What would change? How would you then view them? Would you then be more critical of every mistake they ever made and reanalyze your opinion of them? Many people consider the first rule of ADHD to be very important in order to maintain privacy, and to avoid misjudgment. Did you […]

How to Blog – Ten 10 Lessons in Blogging from a Blogger

I have received many requests for tips on blogging. I typically respond with a link or two from the likes of great bloggers such as Seth Godin (my personal favorite) and a few others. I rarely share any tips of my own. Today I am going to share my top ten self imposed rules. They are not perfect, but they have served me well. Be honest. Blog from the heart and say what you mean to say without trying to guess what people want you to say. If you are trying to say what others want you to say then you are not being honest with yourself and not being honest with your readers. Be positive. Negativity will get you a few readers fast and they may become loyal, but this is the most limiting form of reaching out that there is. You will more likely repel the rest of the […]

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 […]
