ADD & Loving It?!

Join Patrick and Janis McKenna, and Rick Green as they take you on an inspirational and often hilarious romp through the world of ADD from discovery to diagnosis to all out living.

What is this documentary all about, and how can it help me?

If you’re wondering whether you have adult ADD or ADHD, or you’re concerned about a friend or loved one, and whether it’s impacting your life, then you’ll want to watch this documentary.

You’ll learn what this disorder looks like in real life and what people experience or go through when they don’t know they have it. You’ll also learn why a diagnosis is important and why KNOWING makes all the difference in the world.

Knowing you have it and focusing on strength-based solutions can make a huge difference in your life. How do we know this? Because this film was made by ADD adults.

What will I learn from this documentary?

  • Hear from 9 top ADHD specialists who share their experiences in dealing with thousands of adults and for some, dealing with their own ADHD
  • Discover what ADHD actually is and why it’s important to know. The damage that undiagnosed and untreated ADHD can do to marriages, families, careers, health, and finances is often catastrophic
  • Get 5 practical actions that you can take that will make a big difference in your life
  • Understand that your mindset controls your actions and what you can do to maximize your strengths

I’ve been misdiagnosed for over almost 30 years. I saw ADD and Loving It?! and it explains my whole life the way nothing else has. I started reading, going to support groups and diving into this new journey… I feel like I have a whole new lease on life!” – DP

Do I have ADHD?

Are you feeling overwhelmed, stressed out, and can’t focus?

Then maybe you do…

But, in our experience, finding reliable, independent information on adult ADD / ADHD is difficult.  Especially online.  Everyone has a strong opinion on what ADHD is and whether it’s even a real disorder. The amount of misinformation is overwhelming, and often disheartening.

Doctors have been diagnosing what we now know as ADHD since the 1700’s.

There are thousands of studies, and new brain imaging technologies that show there is a real difference in how the ADHD brain works.  In fact, genetic researchers have identified over 20 genes associated with this mindset.

ADHD is neither a moral failing nor a character flaw–it’s an issue with low levels of certain brain chemicals.  About 4% of adults qualify as having ADHD,  but most ADD adults have no idea they have it. ADHD may be undermining your best efforts to enjoy and participate in many areas of your life.  Understand what it is, and how it affects adults is the key to taking the next steps on what to do about it.

What will I learn from the quiz?

  • Whether ADHD may be an issue for you
  • Which of the two main subtypes of ADHD you may fit into
  • Learn more about ADHD, and your next steps

This quiz is based on the international standards for diagnosing ADHD / ADD adults, set forth by the World Health Organization, The American Psychiatric Association and the Canadian Psychiatric Association.

Well, let’s see…
