Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) affects people without distinction to their race, gender, or educational background. So while we’ve been delighted to have women blog about their battles with ADHD on Psych Central (namely ADHD From A to Zoe), we’re pleased to welcome Kelly Babcock to the Psych Central blogging family.

He will be blogging here to talk about his battles with attention deficit disorder, and what’s worked for him in combating and living with ADHD every day. Kelly spent 50 years knowing he was different, but not knowing why. Growing up with a supportive and encouraging family he managed to find a way to fit in, well aware that love and luck played the biggest parts in any success he enjoyed prior to his diagnosis.

It wasn’t until a chance encounter with another person with ADHD that he realized, from her speaking openly about her own diagnosis and ADHD in general, what made him different.

You can learn more about Kelly here. Please give him a warm Psych Central welcome!
