Recently, we had a pipe break in our ceiling again for the 3rd time in 10 months, only this time in the kitchen. So we had to move everything to my brother's room this time from the living room and…Continue

I don't know about you, but after about a decade or more of being diagnosed and treated for my ADD/ADHD, I feel like a veteran ADD/ADHDer. I am wondering if any one else around here feels the same…Continue

Many of us from time to time need someone to talk to, to listen to us, and/or let us process stuff. Sometimes it's really hard to find the ideal listener. The one who intuitive listens, doesn't interrupt, let us cry without having to explain the tears immediately. Sometimes it would be great if that listener would hold off giving advice until you ask for it. However, isn't the most important thing you want in a listener is to be non-judgmental, supportive and capable of not blabbing it to…Continue

I often hear people talking about or complaining about how their insurance won't cover this or that, but could their pharmacy be a factor? Does your pharmacy just tell you talk to your doctor or leave you to fight the insurance company?

I do need my online presence for building my ADHD coaching practice, being involved in ADDer World, helping out on Facebook, taking my reviews for my ADHD coaching training classes, blogging, tweeting, and so forth.
So what's up with my meds? Is it the major stimulant shortage? No it's not the medication shortages. The problem lies with…Continue

how do you define success? does success cost money? does it have to make you rich? In this country it seems to be the filthy rich and the rest of us. Do we need more rich people? perhaps. Do we need more money? Of course we do. No doubt we need it, but is it possible to be a success before the money comes in? is it possible to be successful if the money never comes in?
Some of my heroes and heroines, never were rich. Yet they made a huge difference in this world. They will be…
