Visualizing the A.D.D. Life


If someone were to ask me, “What is it like to be an,” I can point them to this painting and say, “See that wounded angel? That’s what it feels like to be an” [note 1]

This painting is called The Wounded Angel.

  1. This is not meant to imply, in any way, that A.D.D.ers are angels. I interpret the angel as a symbol of someone who TRIES to be good and angelic. Whether an succeeds in this endeavor is quite another matter.

    The first time I saw therapist and ADD/addiction specialist Wendy Richardson speak, her Powerpoint presentation consisted almost entirely of images. They made her points beautifully.

    And so does yours.

    I think especially of little kids whose ADHD goes unrecognized and cannot imagine their frustration at being so misunderstood. No wonder some cases of oppositional defiance arise solely in reaction/defense.
