Dr. Ned Hallowell is doing a documentary about ADHD and is looking for women who have not yet been diagnosed, but think they might have ADHD. If you would like to be filmed for his documentary, then please contact his assistant, Dianne, to see if you might qualify. You can reach her at [email protected]. The producers will screen you to see if you are appropriate for their project.
A nice article has just been released in USA Today reviewing that more women with ADHD are getting diagnosed and using ADHD medications. With a high rate of unplanned pregnancies for women of child-bearing age, experts weigh in on how to handle pregnancy and these medications.
Katie, a 30-year-old journalist, has ADHD and her husband does not. In her first blog for ADHD and Marriage, she talks about life before and after receiving her diagnosis at 29 years old, and the moment she realized her marriage could be saved.
I have just read a book on the topic of anger and relationships that Dr Hallowell suggested - it's great and would be very, very helpful to any woman who is trying to make sense out of why nothing seems to change in her relationship even though she keeps trying to "fix" it. (Men would benefit, too, but the book happens to be written with women in mind). I have been trying to figure out how to communicate how to move from "stuck" to a more fluid place where couples can actually make progress.
