Had planned for the new book to come out in June.
Maybe July, but don't count on it.
We started cleaning out the garage, and came to the boxes of memorabilia. Family fotos and documents, going way back. Enough information to try to piece together a family tree, laboriously. A copy of a will of one of my ancestors who owned 125 slaves (I am not proud of this). They were divided into six lots to be distributed to his family, along with the livestock. No…Continue

The ADD or ADHD world is abuzz, I mean abuzz! about Dr. Thakkar's article in the 4/28/2013 New York Times. He says that some people with ADD or ADHD might be misdiagnosed, and might instead have a sleep disorder causing the same symptoms.

I was reading something by Dr. Hallowell, in which he talked about the concept of "good enough".

Bonnie Mincu points us to some new information, new to me, about the stimulants (Ritalin, ADDerall, etc) for ADD or ADHD. Turns out that vitamin C, or orange juice, will make the medicines less effective. It will be OK if you take them a few hours apart. Bonnie talks of starting to take Vitamin C daily, and later noticing that her meds weren't working as well, without guessing the connection.
I assume that grapefruit juice would have the same effect? It interferes with the…Continue

A response to Holly on ADDerworld, who is concerned about her anger, and says that she know all the things she should be doing but is having a hard time doing them:
"Holly, you recognize the problem, that it is a problem and that you aren't happy about it. so you are already ahead of the game. May I respectfully suggest that you may NOT know all the things you should be doing. Plus "should" thinking doesn't help; it is better to figure out…
