Overview

Every year, millions of withdrawn little girls and chronically overwhelmed women go undiagnosed with Attention Deficit Disorder because they don't fit the stereotypical profile: they’re not fast-talking, hyperactive, or inattentive, and they are not male. Sari Solden’s groundbreaking study reveals that ADD affects just as many women as men, and that the resulting depression, disorganization, anxiety, and underachievement are also symptoms of ADD. Newly revised and updated to reflect the latest clinical research, the book explores treatment and counseling options, and uses real-life case histories to examine the special challenges women with ADD and ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) face, such as the shame of not fulfilling societal expectations. Included is a brand new chapter on friendship for women with ADHD. Three empowering steps — restructuring one's life, renegotiating relationships, and redefining self-image — help women take control of their lives and enjoy success on their own terms.

This book includes information on self-image, social issues, decision-making, organizing, depression, educatin, strategies, and support. Solden includeds a self-assessment, detailed information on medications for ADD, and information for partners of women with ADD. This book is relevent whether you are a woman who is just beginning to explore if you have ADD, or if you are seeking further ideas or support. The only thing I did not like about it is it appears there was not an editor who checked for grammar and typos.
