Frances Talbott-White added a discussion to the group ADHD and Organized

Resources for Getting Organized

I got my first hint that I might have ADD from a book called The House That Cleans Itself. This was after more than three years of only partially helpful participation in Simplify 101, where I took numerous online courses in things like goal setting, controlling paper clutter, and how to get/stay organized.Just this past summer, googling led me to…See More

"I find it a little disconcerting to see that there has been no activity in this group since 2008. I am happy to have been welcomed, but wondered why the acceptance of my membership took several days.  "

Getting lost with ADD ADHD

Cognitive maps

From a course on learning: Starting as babies, we develop two kinds of cognitive maps of our environment. One is directions – go north three blocks, turn left at the pornography store, and right at the next light  –.

The other is a visual image of the landscape which we gradually build up as we explore it.…

I Don't Wash Wine Classes Anymore

Every time I put wine glasses in the dishwasher, no matter how I do it, they break.

That's just part of my ADD ADHD.

ADD ADHD time wasters and addicitions

Time wasters, Addictions

I was addicted to computer wargames. They were taking over my time and my mind.            I tried many strategies,  but eventually had to just get rid of them all.                          Nothing else worked.

Next, I got hooked on Free Cell, though not as bad. It's gone from my computer now.

Currently, I have chess and poker on my iPhone. I only use them at opportune moments and briefly. I don't think they're a problem,…

My friend Ken sent a great post today; I have to use it.

What do stimulants and religion have in common?

1. They can both be misused and abused.

2. They were both the subject of such a…

Doing the easy thing

The easy thing in ADD ADHD

I'm working on the fourth draft of the fourth book and toying with the fifth and sixth.     The writing is fairly easy,  enjoyable, therapeutic, and always rewards me  with a sense of accomplishment when I get a few pages done.

Other things I need to do are less enticing and are piling…

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.


But you and your partner can identify the behaviors that are most frustrating for them, and can come up with…

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


“'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.


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.
