But don't let that

An energy efficiency expert, a grad-school student, an ADHD family and a public relations exec. Meet them and more. Hear their stories. Say, “yep, that sounds like me” and feel good about it.

Freddie won’t let ADHD stop him
from saving the planet.

This soccer playing, photo taking, engineer who specializes in energy efficiency reached a turning point in his life when he decided to really deal with his ADHD. He had struggled with ADHD symptoms since childhood but had never been diagnosed or treated. Though he did graduate from college, he recognized he didn’t do as well as he was capable of doing. Two years ago, he sought help. He had big plans and knew his ADHD was getting in the way. He found the right treatment plan and now he’s working to make the world a better place.

My goal was to be able to focus on my profession and I’ve been able to accomplish that, so yeah, for me, life is good.

As Lauren’s life got
busier, so did her ADHD.

This NY Public Relations pro and foodie has a full plate. When she got more responsibilities at work, her ADHD symptoms became more apparent. Getting diagnosed and on treatment has changed her world for the better.

Since I’ve been diagnosed with ADHD, things have gone from more of a negative place to a much more positive place.

HI ADHD. MEET SHANNON – SOON TO BE MENTAL HEALTH PRO. WATCH. OUT.

Shannon is a self-described “mess” who embraces her ADHD. Since she was diagnosed, she’s headed back to grad school for mental health (double meaning intended). She also has a full time job and a full time kiddo, so yeah, she’s kind of busy.

You are your best
advocate.

ADHD for two. Make that three, Please, and thank you.

Love, encouragement, understanding and a good sense of humor makes any marriage work, right? Right. That’s especially true when you both have ADHD. Meet Chris and Donna–spouses, parents and professionals. They (and their daughter) have ADHD. Life is full of post it notes, schedule reminders, pep talks and celebrating their successes. Which are MANY.

When you have ADHD, you have to face a lot of defeat. It’s great to come home to someone who says, ‘hey, you’re fabulous, you’re strong, you’re smart, you got this’ – so you can come out the other side like, yeah, I can make this happen.
