Personal and Professional ADHD

I just got back today from 4 days of exhibiting at the Learning and the Brain Conference. People who attended the conference were mostly clinicians (psychologists, mental health counselors and social workers) and educators. So I thought it would be a great group of people to let know about the services ADDClasses.com offers.

What really surprised was how many of the attendees were personally affected by ADHD. I was really only expecting these people to be interested in ADDClasses.com from a professional perspective. I was amazed the all the different ADHD stories people coming by my exhibit table shared with me. Some had or suspected they had ADHD themselves. Many were parents of children, teens and adults with ADHD. Some had spouses and other relatives with ADHD too.

I guess I’m always amazed at just how many people are affected by ADHD!

    Whether I’m telling someone about my ADD, or my depression, far too many people quickly begin telling me that they think they have one or both of these conditions!

    If up to 3+% of Adults have ADD, and 18% suffer some level of depression during their lifetime, then why are the percentages so much higher when I’m sharing one on one with people? It drives me NUTS!!!…

    …I simply (and quickly) ask them what type of mental health professional diagnosed their condition. 😮 🙂

    Howdy, i read your blog often and i own an analogous one and i used to be simply wondering if you get a lot of spam comments? If thus how do you stop it, any plugin or anything you’ll be able to advise? I get thus much lately it’s driving me mad so any help is very abundant appreciated. Others truly struggle with how to handle their angry emotions and end up causing a lot of chaos.
