Quote of the WeekQuick Links

“When I visualize the passage of time I see before and after and during and everywhere in between all at once, and everything is forever changing.  "My wife can organize a to-do list and prioritize it and carry out each activity one at a time to completion," says Tim. "I approach a to-do list full on, with the chores or activities all needing to be done at once. I call it 'living the matrix.' I feel I can do everything while time stands still for me."”
-    Tim Hanley from a recent ADDitude Magazine article on time and couples

ADDitude Magazine recently published an article about differing perspectives on time in ADHD / non-ADHD couples.  If you have time issues in your relationship, it’s worth a read.  Go to this link
