It’s OK to slip up or get off track every once in a while. I think it’s actually a good thing for people with ADD to have pitfalls. The trick is being able to get right back on on track. Getting back on track can be a huge challenge for many people with Attention Deficit Disorder

I think one of the biggest things that gets in the way of getting back on track is that many people with ADD tend to beat up on themselves. Just realizing that we have actually gotten off track is a huge accomplishment in itself. Instead of beating ourselves up we really should be acknowledge that we have taken the first step. Next we need to forgive ourselves and try again.

Since many of us with Attention Deficit Disorder can be our own worst critics it may be beneficial to get support from others with issues like this. It could be a trusted friend or family member. This is also something that an ADD Coach can help with too.

      How does one know if one (as an adult) has add. I suspect that I did/do. I had trouble in my first years at school, teachers said I was bright, but I wasn’t always constructive with it. Anyhow, now I recognize many of the symtoms, i.e. the clutter you talked about, or brief bursts of fascination for a certain field, that I then grow tired of. It’s astonishing to me that I have kept my blog going for more than a year.

      I just wanted to stop in and say thanks for renting space on my blog. It was an honor. You are doing great work with this blog…keep it up!

      I also have a question. I’m a bi-polar disorder sufferer…how close are the two, if at all? Is it possible to be both?
