Have you seen the redesign of the blog? No? Then go check it
out. While the basic functionality remains, it has a more
urban/edgy look and feel.

If you are still fighting your ADHD like it’s a foreign
invader, you’ll want to read my post “Owning the ‘Curse’ of
Adult ADHD”

Carpe Diem!

- Jeff


“The ADHD Handyman”
A faux magazine that looks at home repair issues.

You can see the complete set of faux magazines at the
Magazine Rack.

“How Do They Do That?”
The non-ADHD world can look like a strange place to ADHDers.

“Owning The ‘Curse’ of Adult ADHD”
I fought my ADHD for years. The fight is over. There is no
winner. There is loser. But fully accepting my ADHD is having
a profound effect on my life.

“Inspirational Quotes”
Some days…you need a little inspiration.

“Why Intelligent People Fail”


Please take a look at Dr. Parker’s new eBook, “ADHD Medication
Rules: Paying Attention To The Meds For Paying Attention.”
Written for the intelligent layperson, Dr. Parker has created
a new paradigm for the treatment and diagnosis of ADHD.
(I will soon be posting a review of the book.)


Jennifer Koretsky has again put together a “virtual” ADHD
conference. This is the third virtual conference and they have
been well received. The next one is scheduled for
October 4-6, 2010. Some of the speakers at the conference
include Edward Hallowell, Ari Tuckman, Charles Parker and
many others. A full conference agenda and list of speakers
can be found on the conference website.


“Examining the ADHD Life: How to Talk to ADD Kids”
Despite what you may have seen on television, it’s really not
that easy to talk to your children about serious issues.


“Health Food Focus: Chocolate Chip Pancakes”

“What The F*ck Should You Make For Dinner?”

“Chicken Francese”
A simple recipe that tastes delicious.


I have a politically-oriented YouTube channel called
“The Day’s Rant.” Warning!! My politics are left-of-center.
