Hi! I have ADD and I did not get diagnosed, until I was in my 30's. For some reason (maybe disbelief?) I went three different times for a correct diagnosis for ADD. Finally, after the third time, I attempted stimulant medication. I did not like the effect of any of them so I do not take stimulants. However, maybe that explains my passion for StarBucks!!! I love flavored latte's!
I hope that you have a wonderful Thanksgiving Day!
Oh, well, ever day is a new day around here! Things are going along at a more reasonable pace today, not sure they will stay that way though? I have multiple docs appts, work, high school soccer banquest, then kids homework tommorow!
Then at the last split second the girls tell me it is already time to sign up for winter soccer and spring soccer - WHAT? Oh but other than all that, life is OK!
How are things there? Getting ready for the holidays? I have been online trying to shop for some deals, no great ones on the hard to find items yet!
The 4 teenagers took off to walk around and trick or treat a bit. The younger one went with a friend of hers and family and I am home giving out candy to all the little kiddos! It is more relaxed for me now that my kids are older, I remember the days of trucking around the neighborhood! Cute stuff!
Hey Ben, there are a few folks around here that were diagnosed well into adulthood! I will check back in with you when you fill out more about yourself and why you got a diagnosis so late, if you want to share!

“'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.
