Is it better than you think?

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

"54 year old, going for my teaching certificate and hopefully masters. Going back to school, and the organizational challenges of teaching, are a big part of why I'm finally getting around to doing something about ADD."

college for us older students

There is a lot of advice for younger students fresh out of high school with a high degree of support from parents. However, there isn't as much support or help for the older ADD/ADHD college student.

Confidants, non-judgmental listeners

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…

Advocating with kids

I started advocating for myself as a kid. I learned how to stand up to adults from a very early age. I learned how to deal with bullying. I learned how to turn the other cheek as appropriate and when to fight back. I learned how to put boundaries up to a certain extent. I learned how to make decisions, important decisions from a very early age. I learned to not care what most people think of me. I learned that I generally had a better idea of what I was capable of doing than most of the…

Medication issues-Could your pharmacy be a factor?

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 had thought many of my medication issues were caused entirely by the insurance company. However, that wasn't completely true. I switched pharmacies recently, and yes some of the issues were caused by the insurance, but the main culprit was my…

My decrease activity

I know I am usually very present online, but lately between medication issues and technology issues it has been more difficult to maintain.  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…

how to succeed with less money

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…

Hey Sarah -- below was an answer on MY blog, then it dawned on me you'd NEVER see it now!  So here it is on YOUR page.

------------------------------
ONLY a year and something later
 (by the dates below!), I noted your question, Sarah (sorry!) 

It's a fuzzy concept, generally takes a bit of explaining --but let me give it a shot here with the time I have right now.

An "acknowledgement" is what I frame as "noticing out loud."  

An "endorsement" is closer to a compliment, but not in the "meant to flatter" sense of the word (there's "voting" going on, i.e, you like it, but it is more charge-neutral than something that is more opinion-relatedwithout an overt signifier  "What a pretty dress." vs. "I think your dress is pretty.").  

When you added "I admire" to your acknowledgement, it became an endorsement (but not a compliment)

Hope that makes it a BIT clearer than mud!

xx,

mgh

Thank you for the lovely welcome, Sarah! I look forward to participating in many aspects of this site. I was delighted to discover this community! Knowing how many of us have ADD/ADHD, I should have known there'd be a great place like this for us to share and learn.

Thanks Sarah, I see that you are the welcome wagon for the website! I am interested in learning all that I can about how to manage my ADHD in the workplace. That seems to be my biggest problem right now. Thanks again for the warm welcome!

Thank you Sarah for your message welcoming me to the group! I am just now starting to explore the site. I wrote a kind of introduction in the general discussion section in the forums. I start school (community college) again in August and this time want to try and get some sort of help before it's too late...so I am seeking all the advice I can get and am starting to really read up on the site. Thank you again for welcoming me to the group. Made me feel a bit better about posting. :)

Thank you Sarah, I have finally accepted that this is a life changer & my husband doesn't need to hear EVERY CRAZY THOUGHT! I look forward to moving in that direction with support, acceptance and understanding :)

Thanks, Sarah. I hope to be able to both learn and contribute. Though so far I don't feel like I have ever learned how to overcome any part of this ADHD. :)

Hi Sarah, I read your reading article today. Very good. It's funny, I wrote an article about reading last week and had not posted it yet. I'll wait a couple weeks before posting it :) Are you back online? Things worked out with the insurance and getting online?
