Live boldly as a woman with ADHD! This radical guide will show you how to cultivate your individual strengths, honor your neurodiversity, and learn to communicate with confidence and clarity.
If you are a woman with attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), you’ve probably known—all your life—that you’re different.

Confessions of an ADDiva
Midlife women have moments when they are sure they have lost their minds. Is it “menopausal madness” or is it ADD?
In this lighthearted, inspirational book, Linda Roggli tells what it’s like to live forty-five years with undiagnosed ADD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder); the diagnosis explains a lot!

Women with Attention Deficit Disorder,
psychotherapist Sari Solden’s, groundbreaking book, explains how every year, millions of withdrawn little girls and chronically overwhelmed women go undiagnosed with Attention Deficit Disorder because they don’t fit the stereotypical profile: they’re not fast-talking, hyperactive, or inattentive, and they are not male.
This pioneering book explores treatment and counseling options, and uses real-life case histories to examine the special challenges women with AD/HD face, such as the shame of not fulfilling societal expectations. Solden explains that AD/HD affects just as many women as men, and often results in depression, disorganization, anxiety, and underachievement.
