Read full description of the books:
This book has changed my life. If you are a woman, or know a woman who has been diagnosed with ADD/ADHD, read this book!
I think it is especially important for women like me. I had a lifetime of dealing with issues, beating myself up, & feeling frustrated. This is not uncommon, because most women as young girls don't exibit obvious symptoms. I made good grades & didn't cause trouble. I was the daydreamer in class, unless it was a class I liked. I was a pleaser, who worked extra hard. We learn how to compensate & hide our struggles. I was 37 when I was diagnosed. I read a little about ADHD, I was given medication, then decided I didn't need that & continued to struggle for years. I could not see how this medical issue impacted my life & those around me. This book has been a huge eye opener. What I really appreciate are the tools, strategies, & resources offered. This is not just a book that describes the symptoms, but offers impressive ways to live your life in a better way. It talks about the shame you feel when you just don't measure up. How hard you have to work to be preceived as "normal". What happens when you hit a wall, & things start to fall apart. Instead of beating yourself up for your issues, you begin to see how your struggles are a part of you, just like your strengths. You learn to communicate with others about what your needs are & ask for help in a non apologetic way. You are finally able to celebrate all of who you are.
