Disclosure: Should I Keep My ADHD a Secret?

By Rick Green,

People with ADHD are different. Not just from the 96% of the population who are ‘neuro-typical’ but from each other. We are indeed a diverse tribe.

Each of us faces a distinct combo of challenges. We each have our individual buffet of symptoms. Explosive Anger is was never an issue. Rumination, on the other hand…

Some traits may be more. Some less of a problem. Or not there at all.

The Best Thing Anyone Ever Said About ADHD Medication

By Rick Green

I’ve stopped and started taking ADHD medication four times.

The first time I started was nearly 15 years ago.

The fourth time I started medication was yesterday.

Over the next month, I’ll tell the story of each start & stop. Each time I started was for a different reason. Each time I stopped was for a different reason.

But today, I want to talk about why I stopped taking medication the second time, and why I started again. Because it was the only time I succumbed to pressure and other people’s opinions.
