People With ADHD Have It Made

Posted Sep 23 2008 5:09am

In the “aftermath” of ADHD Awareness Week, I can’t help but be truly inspired by the resources and services specifically established and targeted for children and adults whose lives are affected by ADHD.

My reaction: People with ADHD Have It Made

Now…this might be a little bit extreme, but quite honestly, I want your attention.   I want to change how you see the world around you.

When I first became active in the ADHD community, I did it because I saw my clients and their families without resources.  They were searching high and low and couldn’t find anything.

But you know what?  It was already out there…

Maybe I wasn’t open to it.  Maybe I didn’t get as involved as I could have from the get go… But that’s NOT the point.

What I want to share with you today are some observations from ADHD Awareness Week.  These are the observations that led me to say:

People With ADHD Have It Made!

Let me show you why:

I don’t know that I have ever seen such carefully targeted and relevant information available to an identified group of people as much as there is for a person or family affected by ADHD.

That’s right!

There are people out there in your community who are so devoted to making a difference.  They are devoted to changing lives…  And for most of them…  It’s NOT about the money.

And I bring this up, because yes…  There are services available for everyone.  And everyone in life struggles.  But I think it’s fair to say that most people are perceived to be out to make a buck or two…

But if you look at the ADHD community-the visible people who are really out there-they do it out of love and passion.

During ADHD Awareness Week and the ADHD Awareness Marathon, my colleagues put together some unbelievable programs on topics including:

  • Organization
  • Relationships
  • Parenting
  • Workplace
  • And so much more…

Who else receives this level of care and attention? For the most part, people are walking around doing what they think they should be…  We aren’t taught how to have relationships or how to be organized.

At least I never was…  And it’s not enough to just learn some of these by observation.  For people who’s minds are different - we need tactics, tips, tools, and strategies.

In some ways…  we need short cuts!

That’s it!  I just wanted to share a reaction I had.  It might be an incomplete thought…  It might rub you the wrong way…  But when (not if) you are open to it - you will see there are opportunities for change and for improvement in quality of life when you commit to it!
