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.

This book was such an informative and eye opening read I just couldn't put it down. I had a feeling my symptoms were not depression but something more like OCD. This book gave me everything I needed to access my situation and also told me how to find the right type of help. It included all treatments available for different diagnoses and the difference between OCD, ADHD, depression, anxiety, etc. This book led me to the right help and I am now on the road to peace of mind. What a difference this book made in my life! Thank you to the author and please, anyone looking to figure out exactly what their problem or the problems of loved ones are try reading this book, it is just what the doctor ordered.

Born 1987...Been personally diagnosed since I was 6 years old. It was so taboo back in the day..parents always telling me not to disclose information about the condition to friends or teachers for years. Finally, over the years my parents have been trying to educate themselves about the condition (add/adhd) . and progress has been made. However, the turning point for my entire family was when we found this book and each of us read our own copy. The people who love me the most. and have always known me the best. finally, truly understand me. Not to excuse any behavior but rather understand it and find ways to cope/recover & continue on in the most productive way possible. THIS BOOK IS TRULY AMAZING & I CAN HONESTLY SAY A LIFE SAVER! I WHOLE HEARTEDLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK TO ALL!

Excellent book for the person who has just been diagnosed or for the therapist or physician who wants to learn more about Adult ADHD. This text looks at many of the myths and misconceptions regarding Adult ADHD and advocates for the patient. Nice job. Scott Shapiro, MD, Adult ADHD Specialist, New York City, NY
