Book Description

Aug. 17 2010
I was already so ashamed of myself...I got to the point where I would duck behind shelves at the grocery store to avoid talking to people...I went out of the house as little as possible and would never invite anybody to come to my home, other than my best friend. I was determined to hide this elephant that had taken over my life. After being diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder at the age of thirty six, Kim Gay spent several frustrating years looking for answers to her questions about the disorder only to find that very little was known about ADHD when it pertained to adults. Her quest for knowledge and enlightenment inspired her to write this book with the hope of helping others who keep finding themselves at the same dead end. Hiding an Elephant explains in detail the symptoms of adult ADHD, and through her personal experience, Kim Gay encourages other sufferers not to be ashamed of their condition any longer. 'A relaxed, easy reading experience filled with humor, insight and life strategies. Gain a personal look into the unique challenges of being a child, a daughter, a student and eventually an adult, a wife, and a mother with ADHD.' Michelle L. Solo, LMSW, ACSW

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful book for anyone who struggles with ADHD Sept. 24 2010
By MARIE ODOM - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Perfect Paperback
My health practioner loaned me this book today, because I struggle with ADHD, and she thought I might be able to relate to the author, Kim Gay. I sat down to read, and just couldnt put it down. I really felt like Kim had wrote my life story for me. This book details exactly what it is like to live with ADHD, without making any of the usual excuses. It also compassionately describes the heartbreak that we feel when we know we are not living up to our full potential. This book definately gets two thumbs up!

Great short book with alot of insight into understanding ADHD.
I bought it to help me learn more so that I could hopefully "get along better" with a friend
with ADHD. UNDERSTANDING what it's like living with ADHD from his viewpoint helps ME.
Therefore, our relationship benefits.

Having just found out at 42 years old that I've had adhd all of my life, this book was a joy to read. There's not a lot of books out there for adults to read about adult adhd. This book was actually very refreshing and made me feel not so alone in my adhd and all the problems that come along with it. I recommend it to anyone with adhd.
