ADD ADHD and Foods and Diets and Alternatives

There's a lot written about nutritional treatment for ADD ADHD. A lot of it seems to me to be wishful thinking. Here's some science, from Dr. Farone. I've edited his post.Stephen V.Stephen V. Faraone, Ph.D.Distinguished Professor…See More

Greg M replied to Greg M's discussion Is there REALLY help out there?
"Naw Eric you didn't kill it. The thing is its a touchy post for most people. Everyone is working out what is best for them there isn't a magic answer that will solve everyone's problems . Perhaps the counselor can only help guide us…"

Why I'm not using my real name

I am not ashamed. I am what I am. I am neither proud nor ashamed to be myself, ADD included. For me, pride and shame are about what i do, what I make of myself. I am proud that I am doing what it takes to thrive and give my best to the world.



The doctor who prescribed my meds this morning warned me that I now have something some people want to steal, so I need to be a little careful about who knows about it.



Also, I have a family that includes an ex wife who has been… Continue

My ADD ADHD Problem: Stuck, Stalled, and Stagnant

Stuck

Since I changed my schedule I haven't been able to get reorganized yet.                       My to do list is way too long, and I'm blocked and stuck.

Strategy

I plan to use a favorite strategy, take a used envelope and  write a calendar on the back. Then I'll put one of those tasks for each day and I will get…

the jerk who keeps trashing my desk

I am really upset at that guy.
Yeah, I know it's me. Still passed off.
Even more, actually. I know he's well aware of how much I need a little clear space on my desk, because he's me. And I know he knows, because I'm him.

What a jerk.

my wife complains

My wife told me this morning that I'm very difficult to  live with.                                               I have no reason to doubt her.  She's  unhappy because I got lost walking in the neighborhood the other day and she was concerned about me.

I explained to her that I was totally safe. I had my cell phone.  If I'd been willing to stop walking I could've found my location and a map on my phone, or I could've called her.       Or even called 911.                              …

ADD ADHD is Messy

Making a mess:

I previously told you about my struggles with the plastic dish pan for foot soaking. I would have the pan at the sink, fill it with hot water from the teakettle, take it over to the table and put it under the table in front of my chair. I'd slosh some out on way.

Then I would go back to the sink to get some cold water to regulate the temp. When I came back, I would kick the pan, and slosh more out.  Once I  turned…

Screwed up again

Confession:

On Friday, I stood up my friend for our monthly breakfast appointment.

I felt badly about that plus I really enjoy our meetings.

At our last meeting, I'd written the next  appointment time in my appointment book, but I'd only written the time, 8:30.

I've been looking at that 8:30 Friday for a month, trying to figure out what it was about. Never got it. I do this fairly often, plus when I do write down the information, often I can't…

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.
