Good strategy, but only if I follow it.  That requires willpower, which…See More

Strategies or medicine for ADD ADHD?

Would you like medication with that?

Questions about strategies - are they enough?  Questions about medicines - are they enough?

My opinions:

Then we look for data to support it. This may be scientific evidence, Bible verses, or what someone else says.

Then we believe that we formed our opinion or belief through logic and reliable…

Talking to Yourself??

Is Talking To Yourself A Problem, A Symptom, or What?

Someone asked me if talking to yourself is okay. I said I certainly hope so, cause I do it all the time.

I don't think it's a symptom of ADD ADHD; it's a coping strategy.

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.
