We particularly like this one: 

Take Time to Play

By not taking breaks from today’s busy life, you set yourself up for burnout. Schedule fun into your life. Have dinner or go to a movie with friends every week. Take a drive into the country or to the beach on the weekend. Figure out what you love and pursue it without guilt.

Madisyn Klein's curator insight, January 23, 2014 10:28 PM

"My ending, if you will, is to just say that if you are reading this and know any people who seem to have similar issues, please understand that those people are not out to hurt you. They want nothing more than to have the ability to remember, to relax, to know what it's like to feel like their world has a modicum of order. And most of all, they truly are sorry. "

I thought this was interesting as presented the frustrations of ADHD during adulthood. However, I also found it interesting that this woman felt the need to apologize for something that was completely out of her control. I think it would be an idea to note that perhaps the general public should be more educated to decrease these apologetic feelings.

Managing Adult ADD / ADHD's curator insight, April 11, 2014 10:55 AM

"Attention deficit disorder (ADD ADHD) is one of the most researched areas in child and adolescent mental health. However, much about ADHD -- including the precise cause of the disorder -- is still unknown.

 

We do know that ADHD is a brain-based biological disorder. Brain imaging studies using PET scanners show that brain metabolism in children with ADHD is lower in the areas of the brain that control attention, social judgment, and movement."

This loop is well worth your 24 minutes—Russell Barkley is at his best--concise, clear, comprehensive. He presents  longitudinal data to illustrate the prevalence of Adult ADHD (4.4%), that it occurs along with other mental health conditions (80%+), that ADHD impacts more domains of major life activities more seriously than any other condition. And the kicker-- ADHD is substantially under-treated in the US adult population!-- Lou

Some people have found that Adderall can cause a crash, probably because it is an amphetamine salt that stimulates dopamine production and then leaves you dopamine depleted when it wears off. Ritalin, on the other hand, just blocks dopamine and norepinephrine reuptake, so it does not deplete the dopamine as much.

American Institute Health Care Professionals's curator insight, August 28, 2013 2:34 PM

#copingwithADHD #womenwithADHD #undiagnosedcasesofADHD #typesofADHD #symptomsofADHD For some coping with ADHD can be a difficult task.   What happens when you never knew you had ADHD to begin with?    Women with ADHD make up the majority of undiagnosed cases of ADHD.   


The reasoning behind this is because most girls do not show the generalize symptoms of ADHD that we think about when we hear ADHD.   As it turns out there are 3 types of ADHD a child can have.   There is; impulsive and hyperactive ADHD,  easily distracted/does not pay attention type and lastly there is a combination of the two.   Most girls fall in to the second type.    This leads to many cases going undiagnosed simply because they are not bouncing off the walls.  Lucky for those who were never diagnosed at an early age there is help!
