The Crazy Suburban Mom: Home, sweet, home

Home, sweet, home

Life is tough when everyone you live with has Attention Deficit Disorder. You clean and than things go downhill fast.

Piles appear out of no where and any pile there longer than 2 hours is no longer seen. Unless it's moved somewhere else.

I have come to the conclusion that the only way to have a clean house is for every thing I own (and everything everyone else owns) to have a home. A real honest to goodness home.

Good luck.

The best book I ever read on woman with ADD is by Sari Solden. I read it a while ago and it's life changing. And empowering.

As the product information states: Every year, millions of withdrawn little girls and chronically overwhelmed women go undiagnosed with Attention Deficit Disorder because they don't fit the stereotypical profile: they’re not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. Sari Solden’s groundbreaking study reveals that ADD affects just as many women as men, and that the resulting depression, disorganization, anxiety, and underachievement are also symptoms of ADD. Newly revised and updated to reflect the latest clinical research, the book explores treatment and counseling options, and uses real-life case histories to examine the special challenges women with ADD and ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) face, such as the shame of not fulfilling societal expectations. Included is a brand new chapter on friendship for women with ADHD. Three empowering steps — restructuring one's life, renegotiating relationships, and redefining self-image — help women take control of their lives and enjoy success on their own terms.
