Finding Ourselves In A Four Dimensional ADHD Life

Screen Capture from Google Maps"You are here!"

ADHD is not a slice of heaven. Though I've had people tell me recently that it is wonderful, I can't entirely agree.

Dr. Edward Hallowell is fond of saying that we have Ferrari brains with bicycle brakes. I agree wholeheartedly with that analogy. I wouldn't trade my Ferrari brain for anything. But I'd love to...
