  • Yes, it worked...very true. My husband has ADHD and has been struggling with it for years, and we recently went to see a psychiatrist for him because he is in school for the military (learning a foreign language) and he is having a really hard time, they fed him all sorts of bull before even evaluating him or giving him the "adult ADHD" test (which the test showed that he did in fact still have ADHD (duh!) it is really frustrating sometimes!!

  • My sister sent me the link. I posted it because earlier someone posted that she didn't think ADD/ADHD existed. The post is now closed. So I made a new post. Glad it worked!!

  • There are many therapists who work with adults who have ADD/ADHD; they teach them not just coping skills, but how to use ADD/ADHD as an advantage in their lives. Thom Hartmann has written extensively on this topic; you should be able to find his books art your local library, there is lots of information at his website: http://www.thomhartmann.com/category/thom/adhd-education/
