Shannon L. Alder
“It is growing up different. It is extreme hypersensitivity. It is a bottomless pit of feeling you're failing, but three days later, you feel you can do anything, only to end the week where you began. It is not learning from your mistakes. It is distrusting people because you have been hurt enough. It is moments of knowing your pain is self inflicted, followed by blaming the world. It is wanting to listen, but you just can’t anymore because your life has been to full of people that have judged you. It is fighting to be right; so for once in your life someone will respect and hear you for a change. It is a tiring life of endless games with people, in order to seek stimulus. It is a hyper focus, so intense about what bothers you, that you can’t pay attention to anything else, for very long. It is a never-ending routine of forgetting things. It is a boredom and lack of contentment that keeps you running into the arms of anyone that has enough patience to stick around. It wears you out. It wears everyone out. It makes you question God’s plan. You misinterpret everything, and you allow your creative mind to fill the gaps with the same old chains that bind you. It narrows your vision of who you let into your life. It is speaking and acting without thinking. It is disconnecting from the ones you love because your mind has taken you back to what you can’t let go of. It is risk taking, thrill seeking and moodiness that never ends. You hang your hope on “signs” and abandon reason for remedy. It is devotion to the gifts and talents you have been given, that provide temporary relief. It is the latching onto the acceptance of others---like a scared child abandoned on a sidewalk. It is a drive that has no end, and without “focus” it takes you nowhere. It is the deepest anger when someone you love hurts you, and the greatest love when they don't. It is beauty when it has purpose. It is agony when it doesn’t. It is called Attention Deficit Disorder.”
Shannon L. Alder

“My thoughts are like butterflies. They are beautiful, but they fly away.”
Anonymous

Shannon L. Alder
“The good part about having a mental disorder is having a valid reason for all the stupid things we do because of a damaged prefrontal cortex. However, the best part is seeing someone completely sane do the exact same things, without a valid excuse. This is the great equalizer of God and his little gift for all us crazy people to enjoy.”
Shannon L. Alder

“Eden," Cyrus snapped bringing her back to the present. "I have a sword pointed at you. Will you please focus”
Samantha Young, Blood Past

Shannon L. Alder
“Every person with ADHD already knows that destination addiction is part of their disorder. However, if it doesn’t have a positive outlet, it can destroy your life. It is not another person that will make your life better; it is the qualities in them that you admire. Incorporate those attributes into your own life and you won’t miss a thing.”
Shannon L. Alder

Brenda Lochinger
“The future of my child is unknown but I have loved him, supported him, and taught him right from wrong. I will continue to do so...”

“The children who need love the most will always ask for it in the most unloving ways”
Russel Barkley

Stefan Molyneux
“The degree to which the psychiatric community is complicit with abusive parents in drugging non-compliant children is a war crime across the generations, and there will be a Nuremberg at some point in the future”
Stefan Molyneux

Benjamin Tomes
“There’s a huge difference for taking responsibility for one’s actions, and taking credit, and in this scenario I think we need to give credit where credit is due. I won’t take responsibility for my teacher’s drinking problem, but I will take credit for it.”
Benjamin Tomes, Confessions of the Unmedicated Mind; Growing up with ADHD, before ADHD, Volume 1: Home

Stacey Turis
“So, please people, if you know someone with AD(H)D, don’t try to change that about them. Don’t take that one skill away, or make them feel ashamed to use it. Sometimes procrastination is all they have in their little superhero tool belt!”
Stacey Turis, Here's to Not Catching Our Hair on Fire: An Absent-Minded Tale of Life with Giftedness and Attention Deficit - Oh Look! A Chicken!

“Forgive your child and yourself nightly. You didn't ask to live with the effects of ADHD any more than did your child.”
Martin L. Kutscher, ADHD - Living Without Brakes

Alexis de Tocqueville
“It is extremely difficult to obtain a hearing from men living in democracies, unless it be to speak to them of themselves. They do not attend to the things said to them, because they are always fully engrossed with the things they are doing. For indeed few men are idle in democratic nations; life is passed in the midst of noise and excitement, and men are so engaged in acting that little remains to them for thinking. I would especially remark that they are not only employed, but that they are passionately devoted to their employments. They are always in action, and each of their actions absorbs their faculties: the zeal which they display in business puts out the enthusiasm they might otherwise entertain for idea.”
Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America

Shannon L. Alder
“What lies between where you are and where you want to be sometimes requires traveling through the Twilight Zone.”
Shannon L. Alder

Rick Riordan
“Taken together, it’s almost a sure sign. The letters float off the page when you read, right? That’s because your mind is hardwired for ancient Greek. And the ADHD-you’re impulsive, can’t sit still in the classroom. That’s your battlefield reflexes. In a real fight, they’d keep you alive. As for the attention problems, that’s because you see too much, Percy, not too little. Your senses are better than a regular mortal’s.”
Rick Riordan, The Lightning Thief

“This is not a contest with your child. The winner is not the one with more points. The winner is the one whose child still loves them when they graduate from high school.”
Martin L. Kutscher, ADHD - Living Without Brakes

Shannon L. Alder
“Not enough people realize that ADHD is not a disorder about loss of focus. It is a disorder of loss of emotional control, which is triggered by outside influences, self-esteem and our interpretation of events. Whether this is positive or negative it triggers us to hyper focus on what consumes our thoughts. Staying positive is critical and distancing oneself from hurtful people is essential, in order to live a life with purpose.”
Shannon L. Alder

“Zeg niet: "Dat kind heeft ADHD". Zeg wel: "Hij draagt het 7R gen".”
Gert Van Mol

“Behavior isn't something someone "has." Rather, it emerges from the interaction of a person's biology, past experiences, and immediate context.”
L. Todd Rose

Brenda Lochinger
“Someone told me that their child was diagnosed with ADHD. They wanted to know how I handle the day to day. It's hard on me but it's harder on them. I cry sometimes which means they probably do to. I worry that the world will never give them the chance they deserve but I am. I get frustrated when they are treated badly but they feel worse. I keep trying, I keep learning, and I keep telling their story. Just love your child and don't give up. They need you to be the person that understands.”
Brenda Lochinger

Shannon L. Alder
“I am totally convinced my guardian angel is an addict because I can't find my Adderall and she is not talking.”

“If you can still wipe your own backside then life's not that bad!”
E.J. Plows

Shannon L. Alder
“He said, "When you have been thrown out of Eden you find yourself lacking the one thing that is supposed to make your life worth living..." I understood the philosophy of his point—life is sustained beyond the “throws of love ballets and magic moments wished for”. However, I wondered if he ever watched National Lampoon’s Vacation. Chevy Chase had purpose, a plan, intent and found Wally World closed. I kind of don’t blame him for what happened after that. Who doesn’t want to ride the roller coaster in Eden? It looked more fun than the one in hell.”
Shannon L. Alder

Martinus Hendrikus Benders
“I have been investigating this modern problem of decline in readership and my conclusion is that it has little to do with bad readership and a whole lot with a difference in information speed. Frankly, the modern brain is much faster than the classical brain was in how it absorbs information and novels do not reflect this development. They are simply not dense enough. Too slow, not the right tempo - bores the shit out of a modern brain! There's the real problem: our brains have developed into different speed levels that authors cant adjust to. It has nothing whatsoever to do with quality: it has rather a whole lot to do with people claiming to be authors who are incapable of concentrating their ideas in the right sort of space, and rather smear out a few already halfbaked ideas over 30 plus pages. Hello! Do you think its weird a facebooktrained mind, capable of digesting enormous amounts of information at quick speeds, is bored shitless with that? The problem is not bad readership but rather bad authorship: authors that cannot adjust to the times. And since there are a zillion books published every day of authors that just cant keep up with the speed of the times, and criticism hardly exists anymore in modern society, it becomes simply very unattractive to read books, unless one keeps to the classics, which are books that are much more dense at essence.”
Martinus Hendrikus Benders

Neel Burton
“Other pressing problems with the current medical model [of mental disorder] is that it encourages false epidemics, most glaringly in bipolar disorder and ADHD, and the wholesale exportation of Western mental disorders and Western accounts of mental disorder. Taken together, this is leading to a pandemic of Western disease categories and treatments, while undermining the variety and richness of the human experience.”
Neel Burton, The Meaning of Madness, second edition
