A CHADD blog: Join ADHD coaches in a conversation on effective strategies for managing life with ADHD.
ADD has nearly ruined my career/life. At 45, it's tragic to be so far behind, and in life you really do not get "do-overs". If you have symptoms seek a physician, coach, mentor...But it's a daily struggle. See the poem by Charles Finn www.poetrybycharlesfinn.com/pleasehear.html

Try cutting & pasting this and you should find the poem OK.www.poetrybycharlescfinn.com/pleaseheal.htmlNancy, I'm looking forward to hearing LOTs more. I wish it were more often though, & that you lived next door! Can't seem to find anyone near me, and I'm unemployed until September. Wow, didn't know how important the structure of my work day was until I lost it, feeling really adrift in the CHAOS of my life, happy because I'm with my children, but the CHAOS is spreading . . . . . want to have it under better management before I go back to work.
Nancy, I need to know someone that I can go to for my 20 year old son, who is struggling right now to find out what he is going to do for the rest of his life. He has dropped out of school, joined the Marine Reserve and dropped out of that, can't get a job, and is mostly hanging out with no money at all. Concerned Parent
