ADHD causes us many problems and makes our lives harder. This book focuses on strategies that will make your life easier and better. More
Life can be hard sometimes. If we have Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder, a.k.a. ADHD or ADD, it makes life much harder. Despite our best intentions, we’re always messing up, and people are frustrated with us. ADHD causes us a lot of problems and we’ve all devised ways to cope with them, ways that work more or less well. I’m a psychiatrist who has ADHD. I’m going to share with you some of the ways I’ve learned to cope with my ADHD problems. I’ll also share with you some coping strategies from my friends and some from my patients with ADHD. I’ll also share some of the ways that we’re still not coping so well. Unlike most books on ADHD, the focus of this book is on strategies: strategies that will make your life easier. The book is written for people with ADHD, so it has short chapters, repetition, and a summary at the end of each chapter. It also has a special section on studying and learning. If you don’t have ADHD, the book can help you understand and help someone who does.
