Several years ago a friend of mine discovered that he had ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder). The diagnosis and the medication that he took as a result had a profound effect on him. For the first time in his life he was able to focus. This included actually hearing what people were telling him and remembering it. He was a changed man!
My friend had also recommended to me a book on ADD that I hadn’t taken the time to read. Some years later, when I was told about a ministry colleague with ADD, I remembered the book. It was written by Dr. Edward M. Hallowell and Dr. John J. Ratey, two psychiatrists who themselves have ADD. This time I read the book and discovered a world of new information and a number of resources:
ADD & Loving It?!
One especially helpful resource is the film ADD and Loving It?! starring comedian Patrick McKenna. You can access it in the following ways:
ADD & Loving It?! – Extended Trailer
ADD & Loving It?! – on Amazon.com

If you’re reading this blog post, you’re probably interested in ADD. I hope you find these resources to be helpful.
