Everything I used to know about ADD was wrong
Getting a proper diagnosis and treatment was transformational; like losing 400 pounds, only from the mind rather than the body. I was more productive with far less wear and tear on my soul. Everyone deserves to have this feeling of being in charge of their lives, rather than being a confused victim of mysterious whims. It’s possible.
I am an award winning producer, director, writer and comedic performer who has made hundreds of innovative television, radio and stage shows including: History Bites, The Red Green Show, Prisoners of Gravity, The Frantics and of course all of the videos on TotallyADD!
Like many adults with ADD, I first suspected I might have ADHD when one of my children was being diagnosed. I realized that I scored higher on the tests than my child. This appealed to my competitive streak!
For a long time, I managed my ADHD in a, well, ADHD kind of way—sporadically, when it reached a crisis. God bless television deadlines. I also unknowingly demonstrated most of the symptoms of ADHD through my disarmingly destructive character “Bill”.
