ADD ADHD and Marriage??-- Is It Possible??

 Marriage Experts

I am not The Expert on ADD ADHD and marriage, that would be Melissa Orlov and Martha Puryear.  I do have some years in the field, but only from one side.  My expertise would be in How to Live With A Partner Who is Extremely Frustrated with You.

But that's not the book I'm writing right now.

an epigenetics viewpoint

Retirement??

Thought when I retired I'd take a genetics course, learn all about it. Hasn't happened. Retirement is more time consuming than I ever imagined, and the change in scheduling  has still got me thrown off.

But I have read a little bit of interesting stuff on epigenetics.  This is a new exciting topic, moving beyond current genetics…

Eulogy Roster- My way of writing my Journal.

Every day, each of us wins tiny victories………..

In Order that many of these small triumphs do not go unacknowledged, I have created a space where I record these small yet significant daily achievements with the faith that these small drops will come together, to one day create the Ocean of my dreams. 

Under the heading 'I did a great job today of....' I take 15 minutes at the end of each work day to make my entries. This activity by itself helps me…

No time to think – from the New York Times

The New York Times

The New York Times took some time off from bashing ADD, ADHD, Ritalin and the other medications to print this article, which explains a lot.

Avoiding

We make ourselves busy so we can avoid feelings or problems. We don't want to think or feel.…

How to function with ADD ADHD

Coping and functioning

Isn't that what we try to do? So if we have ADD ADHD we try to cope with it. We can't cure it, but we can treat the symptoms, and we can use strategies to cope. And our life can be better.

Is there a treatment?

This is controversial.  The medications-Ritalin, Adderall,…

A Kindness Awakening

Hi, all--

Welcome to my first time at the blog rodeo - let's ride! Or, put another way, I'm out of hidin', time to go writin'! Very recently, I've been experiencing what I'm calling a kindness awakening. This is all about me realizing at a profound level the truth that kindness (starting with myself) is essential to a meaningful life, and that, conversely, the absence of kindness (inside and outside) makes life feel like it's hardly worth living. This is something I agreed with as a…

dust

I've discovered dust is a real thing, an actual part of human experience.



Oh, sure, I've known about it in theory, I've breen able to detect it if I felt the need to look lie I'm doing something useful. I remember b being at a partly excavated pyramid as a kid and asking Mom how it got buried in the first place. Her answer was something about nobody dusting for a thousand years.



But since I started treating my [oh cut the crap - taking meds] I've started seeing surfaces… Continue

7 Crucial Tips for Parents and Teachers of Children with ADHD "Uncommonly helpful, down-to-earth, immensely practical and readable Book." - David A. Crenshaw, Ph.D., ABPP. Director of Rhinebeck Child and Family Center, LLC

Books

“'One Boy's Struggle' is a real eye-opener! Bryan writes of hope and despair, and the all-too-common conflict between desperately wanting to achieve and please, yet suspecting that you’ll fail again… and soon.”
-Dr. Edward Hallowell

Book on Doubt

Writer's Doubt is not specifically about ADHD. It is about how I, with ADHD, overcame doubt and became a prolific writer. For anyone who has ever felt doubtful about what they are capable of.

Caution

Please remember that when discussing medication and / or supplements each member is responsible for his or her comments. Each person's experiences may be different and no one should make any changes or try anything new with regard to medication or supplements without talking to his or her doctor first.
