Honestly…

I started this blog for one reason: I needed a spot to post a response to the parent of a newly diagnosed ADHD child. I’d batted around the idea of an ADHD blog but I had a million other things to do, and never got past the first ten.

So I threw up a quick blog using WordPress called ADHD For Dummies on my iPhone, and posted.

That was less than a month ago.

What happened next astounded even me. I didn’t try to advertise or push the site to anyone except a few friends. A couple of days later, I left a response on Additude Magazine and didn’t think much of it, until I checked the stats.

In the first week and a half (what was left of January) I had received over 300 individual and distinct users to the site.

*Blink*

Okay, maybe It was a fluke.

This Month: 750 individual and distinct users. Again, with no real push because I’ve been playing with what I want this thing to do, and become.

Obviously, I’ve struck a chord, and wasn’t even trying. Personally, I believe it’s a testimony to my thinking: That people – as a whole – are frightened by different. And if there is anything in this world that is different, it’s an ADHD-er that’s full of purpose and unafraid of running face first into a wall. The problem is, most ADHD-ers flounder around, feel beat down and if they do get to that place of purpose, it’s because of their own grit and determination.

But, I believe there’s an army of innovators, of job creators, of new creatives that if they didn’t have to get there alone, could set their homes, their families, their work, this country, and the world on fire.

Will you help me release them?

I’m in the process of moving this blog to My ADHD Brain

All new posts will happen there. The Facebook page will remain the same.

Will you share your thoughts?

    First of all, I think this is great. Obviously you are filling a void you didn’t clearly realize was there. Secondly, I’m not sure it’s fear of different as much as recognition that it is a legitimate thing (we humans are a little slow0 and a willingness to learn and dialog. Good job! I’d be happy to give it a shout out,
