I'm a 31 year old recently diagnose ADD house wife.
It took me two years to finally admit there was something wrong with me, get tested and accept I'm ADD.
With that out of the way, I'm eager to get connected, learn and apply the ADD copying skills to become the woman I've always wanted to be.

“'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.”

Book about Doubt
This is my latest book, which reveals how I overcome doubt and write anyway. Although, not about ADHD, it does talk about how I write day to day and maintain daily writing rituals and accomplish my writing goals. Also contains the story of how I wrote one of the most important ADHD memoirs "One Boy's Struggle" and much more. If you struggle with doubt, give this book a read.
