ADD (or Attention Deficit Disorder) is NOT, as is commonly supposed, a phenomenon just for kids. It is something a person is born with and may be undiagnosed for years for a variety of reasons. But it is still there and can, untreated, be a source of stress and aggravation to the person who has it and his/her family. With proper intervention the person with ADD, who usually has great creativity and sensitivity, can be an asset to the world around him.
Why am I so concerned about ADD and deem it important enough to create a Web Page about it? Because I have it myself....only recently discovered it. I hope that this page will: 1/ Help my friends understand me better... 2/ Perhaps allow others to recognize undiagosed ADD in themselves or others so it can be treated.
Here is a list of links to various pages about ADD...it is by no means
complete but should provide a good starting place to develop an
understanding of ADD....and show what it means to be ADD-ALIVE!!!
