Overview

People with undiagnosed Adult ADD/ADHD suffer highly chaotic lives--and often struggle with problems such as fatigue, depression, drug abuse, and learning disabilities. The good news is that treatment can go a long way toward getting this condition in check. But before anyone can manage the problem, they have to be able to identify it, starting with a thorough understanding of what it looks like in adults. This guide helps you:

  • Understand telltale signs and symptoms
  • Find the right specialist
  • Choose the right treatment
  • Decide whether talk therapy is right for you
  • Learn how to lead a happier and more productive life
This guide also helps remove the guilt and blame surrounding ADD/ADHD by reassuring that it is a real syndrome with a biological cause, and not the result of laziness or a lack of motivation or discipline. From diagnosis to life after treatment, this book will guide you with a reassuring hand every step of the way.
