Book Description

Nov. 28 2011
The science has been clear since 1994, when Adult ADHD was declared a medical diagnosis. Still, the public harbors misconceptions, and that means millions suffer needlessly. And that includes millions of couples who can't understand why their lives together are so hard—sometimes despite many attempts at couples therapy.

Everyone knows someone with adult ADHD. Yet we misattribute the symptoms to anxiety, depression, or even laziness, selfishness, or moodiness. Moreover, we assume ADHD means "little boys with ants in their pants." In fact, childhood hyperactivity goes "underground" as the person matures, resulting in a mentally restless state.

Meticulously researched by award-winning journalist Gina Pera, Is It You, Me, or Adult A.D.D.? is a comprehensive guide to recognizing the behaviors where you least expect them (on the road and in the bedroom, for example) and developing compassion for couples wrestling with unrecognized ADHD symptoms. It also offers the latest information from top experts, plenty of real-life details, and easy-to-understand guidelines for finding the best treatment options and practical solutions. The revolutionary message is one of hope for millions of people—and a joyous opportunity for a better life.

5.0 out of 5 stars The rollecoaster justs keeps rollin' on March 20 2011
By mmace
Format:Paperback
This book really hits the mark for me. I wish that I had read it years ago. I have shared it with a friend who has also found it to be a revelation. I recommend it to anyone who suffers from adult ADD as well as anyone in a relationship with someone who suffers from adult ADD. It is very easy to read, absorb and relate to. Kudos to the author!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent! Jan. 31 2011
By Jo
Format:Paperback
This book is not only a great read for those with ADD but also those around them...spouses, family, friends etc. As a partner of a man who is in the early stages of confirmation of diagnosis and treatment I found it a relief to better understand as the book title says, what was me and what was him, and what was the ADD. It takes stigma away and provides lots of real life examples. Undersanding and patience is key for everyone involved. Especially if your an adult on the journey to diagnosis and treatment and or those closest to them. Trust me. It gets better. Knowledge isnt power, it's how and if you apply the knowledge. Good luck.

It's opened my eyes up to the finer details of ADHD. I am beginning to find my husband again behind what I didn't realize were symptoms of ADHD. He's not doing it all on purpose!
