Discovering My Real Me

Miscellaneous

by David Giwerc

Why can’t I be perfect? Why can’t I be the best? Why can’t I be the center? Why can’t I be the richest? Why can’t I be revered? Why can’t I be the star? Why can’t I be …? …and when I paused, I realized:

This Recording Could Save Your Young Adult Child from Going to Prison

ADHD Education | Miscellaneous

This audio recording is unprecedented and is an absolute must-listen, whether you are the parent or the young adult child who is taking ADHD stimulant medication.

Host Jeff Copper, from Attention Talk Radio, masterfully interviews a young adult college student who was arrested for drug diversion, classified as the illegal distribution of a prescription medication.

This young man courageously reveals his horrific experience for the purpose of preventing it from happening to another human being. This interview will leave you spellbound and in total disbelief that this could happen to any one of your kids. But it could, especially, if they are not made aware of their responsibility with stimulant medications, or any other prescribed medication.

Illegal distribution of stimulant medication under Federal and State law is a felony; and can lead to incarceration.

Daylight Savings Time Changes

Miscellaneous

All ADDCA class start times are based on Eastern Time in the U.S. An easy reference is to use a time zone converter and look at the time in New York.

Twice per year, Daylight Savings Time changes the clocks. This happens at 2:00 AM on a Sunday morning.

  • In the U.S. spring, our time moves back an hour. This typically happens the second Sunday in March.
  • In the U.S. fall, the time moves up an hour. This typically happens the first Sunday in November.

An easy way to remember this is “spring forward, fall back”.

Upcoming time changes will be discussed in active classes, and we will also send an email reminder as it approaches.

When Boring And Hard Are Synonymous - Understanding the struggle with ADHD

ADHD Education | Miscellaneous

By Nathaniel Peters

I have ADHD. No, I’ve never been officially diagnosed as an adult. 

As a toddler in the early 90s, the teachers just called me “challenged” and told my parents I needed help. 

In what I can only describe as heroism, my parents refused to medicate me. Instead, they were advocates for me through and through, and over time, I learned to deal with being endlessly distracted.

It’s Not How Old You Are Externally…

ADHD Quotes | Miscellaneous

I read this wonderful articleabout the oldest man alive, Yisrael Kristal, who is 112 years old and is a Holocaust survivor:  

His life and his attitude towards all the tragedy he has experienced, enlightened and inspired me with this thought:

It's not how old you are identified externally. It's how old you feel inspired, internally, which keeps your soul motivated eternally.
