It’s Only Adult ADD – What a Relief!

For most of her fifty years, Barbara was at war with herself. Keeping organized, being on time, and finishing what she started were always a struggle. (Sound familiar?)

She always secretly felt that she was broken and that there was no way out.

We met after a presentation I did for NAWBO, a women’s business group.

“My desk is a train wreck, I can’t get myself to dorepparttar things I know I have to do and I know I’m smart but my brains take a hike when I need them most. Can you help me?” she asked,repparttar 150990 words running together in a stream of hope and fear.

After coaching ADD-ish entrepreneurs forrepparttar 150991 last 13 years, Barbara’s frustration was very familiar to me. During our first coaching session, I used Dr. Edward Hallowell’s list of 20 traits used to profile Adult ADD. (Be my guest – take a similar test online!)

A score of 12 gets you intorepparttar 150992 club of ADDers. With Barbara’s score of 18 she could run for president!

Like so many people, Barbara felt a surprising sense of relief in having a name forrepparttar 150993 challenges and loneliness that had haunted her all of her life.

You Mean I’m Not Lazy, Crazy or Stupid?

As I spoke to her about being ADD-ish, tears ran down her face in a blur of emotions. Suddenly she wasn’t broken and there was lots she could do to be happier and more successful –repparttar 150994 ADD-ish way!

I shared my positive outlook of being ADD-ish. I know first hand, because I’m one, too.
