ADD By Any Other Name

When I see the shame, anger, and denial people express about their ADD/ADHD, I find myself wishing there was a different term for this syndrome. There’s nothing wrong with us! We’re wired differently, which is to the world’s benefit. Seeing gifted people pull back, hide, and avoid their gift breaks my heart. There are two […]

ADD: A Different Kind of Wiring

Too many people feel shame about having ADD, in my observations and opinion.

Walkin’ On

Walking is my theme these days as I train for my “little jaunt” this fall. So today I want to talk about walking On, In, and To. Walking On Dr Loeffler, my geography professor, always said that you don’t really know a place until you’ve walked the land. I knew he was right but it […]
