Profile Information

About me & Relation to ADHD?
Just found out I have ADD (Inattentive type). Was tested & told I had learning disability by parents in 6th grade, but not what it was. Not until I was retested at 50 did Mom say they knew after I told her about dx.

Hi Marr

 

The yellow and blue books are quite different. The blue one is the second and latest edition and has 25% new material. It came out in 2006.

You're welcome Marr. Basically I assist Bryan with this website, kind of like how over on Women With ADHD ADD Terry and Tara are "hosts". My favorite part of this position is that I get to greet the new members. It's a volunteer position, but it is so much fun. I love interacting with other people with ADD/ADHD.

And yes, Bryan is a very wonderful guy. He's sweet, intelligent, strong young man. You should check out my book review on amazon of his 1st book. i am still working on his most recent book. i am reading it slower than normal bcos i am in school.
