    When I first became an advocate in the field of ADHD, circa 1999, no one was talking about the possibility of emotional dysregulation. Yet, I was seeing it pervasively in my various support groups (for the partners of adults with ADHD, and for the adults themselves).

    When I’d ask clinicians about the obvious mood dysregulation, I was told that related more to bi-polar disorder. I found these responses facile, too simplistic; important pieces of the puzzle were missing in their explanation.

    Then I decided to escalate my efforts and go to the topreading clinical guides and reports from Russell Barkley, Paul Wender, and other top experts. There I found my suspicions confirmed: ADHD itself carried the risk of physical and emotional “sensitivities” and dysregulation.

    What Rick Green has done, in this important video, is translate the sophisticated science into easily grasped conceptsand solid advice.

    It should be required viewing for everyone affected by ADHD, especially the clinicians who seek to help this community.

    Five stars!

    An excellent video with a nice cross section of professionals, and some who are ADHD, providing insights and tips. As someone who hears the world twice as loud as it is, and at times reacts in due proportion, it was incredibly helpful to hear of others experiences and hear of options to drawn upon. It was particularly resonating with the experience of the one individual who relied upon friends’ reviews of movies, as I do likewise, to avoid emotional over loading. It will be a download I return to frequently.

    The title doesn’t fully describe what’s in this video. It shows that ADHD comes with all kinds of sensitivities: emotional, touch, taste, smell, sound, intuition, and even “empathic distress” (where we can feel other people’s pain almost as strongly as they do).

    I learned that this sensory overwhelm is why I’m so careful about what movies and TV shows I watch, and why parties and public transit and food courts really stress me out. All those conversations and noises, layering on top of each other, and bouncing off the hard walls and floors, make me want to scream!

    This video explained it all, and showed why we have to be so mindful of how these sensitivities affect us, so we can limit our exposure to them before we have a meltdown. And that we don’t need to be ashamed of them, because they’re our natural protective mechanisms.

    One of the most comforting things in the world is just two words: ME TOO. Just knowing that you’re not alone in what you’re going through makes it more bearable. This video gives you that “ME TOO”, starting with Bill getting his diagnosis.

    When I got diagnosed, all I really felt was excited. I guess that means I’m a weirdo. But if the other emotions eventually do hit me, this video has me covered!

    This was great. One of the best I’ve seen so far. Watch this… and you’ll appreciate the role and value of ‘mindfulness’ in managing emotions (and their effects on you and the world around you).

    Absolutley must have library !!
    Like me, you probably ended up on the site desperatley searching !
    If you are SERIOUS about educating the AD(D)HD self, and or understanding a loved one, Tap into the BIG BRAIN library. We all have our own stories and histories and “a pill won’t give you the skills” so these products will open the locked door and guide you thru what otherwise (as I have experienced) can be an overwhelm of info. Take the first step thru and as I did, find out yer not “broken, lazy, crazy, or stupid”. Education, Honest Effort & Patience ! OK my attention/impuse control pill wore off so I need to go buy the cool ADHD T-shirt LOL !!
    Thank you Totally ADD, because for the first time in my life at 50, “I’m lovin it” !
    God bless

    WOW!

    I was half teared up and half relieved watching this. SO many times throughout my adult life, I’ve had the internal dialog of,”Am I being irrational and overly sensitive right now?”. Yes, Yes I was! Haha!

    What a relief it is to know its not just me but how I’m wired along with many others. I really appreciate the advice to control what you watch on TV even. What goes in will come out. I never knew how much ADHD played such a HUGE role with emotional regulation. So relieved to know this and learn more.

    Brilliant! Thank you all wh made this for the insight! :0
