Surviving Life with Undiagnosed ADD

Struggle A couple of weeks ago Bryan Hutchinson of ADDer World sent me a review copy of his new book One Boy’s Struggle: A Memoir: Surviving Life with Undiagnosed ADD. It’s a great book and as somebody who was not diagnosed with ADHD until I was an adult I really relate to a lot of what Bryan went through growing up. It’s a great book and I highly recommend it.

Just a word of warning:  The book can bring up a lot of emotion while reading it. It can trigger some unpleasant memories. If you grew up struggling with undiagnosed ADHD like Bryan and I did, be prepared to stir up some of those memories while reading One Boy’s Struggle: A Memoir: Surviving Life with Undiagnosed ADD.

    WOW…it’s amazing how minds can think alive. Friday night I finally got up the nerve to share my story of how I survived and thrived for 48 years with undiagnosed ADD on my blog at http://blog.neatandsimple.com/2008/02/how-i-survived.html

    I was nervous about how people might label me, but the support has been heartening. I finally decided that if people would judge me for it, they aren’t people I want in my life anyway.

    You have been such an inspiration – I LOVE your ADD clesses and hope to someday conduct a class or two for your site. But for now, I’m glad you are here and sharing your life with us.

    All my best,
    Ariane

    While the life-expectancy gap between men and women has decreased, it’s no secret that men still need to pay more attention to their bodies. Several things work against men. They tend to smoke and drink more than women. They don’t seek medical help as often as women. Some men define themselves by their work, which can add to stress.
    There are also health conditions that only affect men, such as prostate cancer and low testosterone. Many of the major health risks that men face – like colon cancer or heart disease – can be prevented and treated with early diagnosis. Screening tests can find diseases early, when they are easier to treat. It’s important to have regular checkups and screenings.

    The treatment of acute hemorrhoids depends on stage of disease.
    Only patients with third degree of acute hemorrhoid should be operated (we perform hemorrhoidectomy).

    Знаете все что хохи говорят про кредитки весь интернет пишит как снимать но
    большенство еще копируют наш сайт и хотят что бы их считали знатоками
    скажу одно когдато в Америке украли базу инфы по кредитным картам тоесть скопировали
    но ни кто так и ни кого не поймал за то снимается отлично если знаешь где покупать инфу
    а остальное дело техники вот нашь маленький скромный сайт http://xcard.at.ua
    кому интересно или кто хочет заработать можете изьявить желание
    но вы сами понимаете ни каких контактов личных
    хочешь разбаготеть не выйлет а вот нажится чуток это можно
    только есть риск а он в бизнесе есть всегда http://videolov.com
    перед тем как принять такое решение подумай сможешь снимать
    не поймают а то тюрьма , а это мошеничество,кража подумай
    хочешь тогда пиши http://xcard.at.ua

    Theoretically, you could be right on this, but, practically… who knows?
