No one seems to understand that those with ADHD know what to do—they just can’t make it happen. It’s not intentional. An ADHD mind continually wants to explore and can’t hold a thought for longer than ten seconds. To get control, ADHD adults need to understand how their brain works, and what a distraction feels like, so they can identify those thoughts that are distractions and stop their mind from wandering. To do that, they need a simple and effective strategy.
As an adult, Joyce Kubik discovered that she had spent all her life with undiagnosed and untreated ADHD. Looking back, she realized that her ADHD prevented her from making herself or her parents happy. Teachers saw her as a failure and discouraged her from going on to college. The rejections she experienced made it clear to her that she didn’t have a clue how to make life work for her.
But Joyce was determined. She taught herself how to stay on track, how to operate and function with the internal processes and signals she had been given in life. In short, she learned how to turn her deficit into an asset, how to become successful in the face of her ever-present ADHD.
Eventually, Joyce fulfilled her life’s dream of earning a college degree. Then she earned a second one. Today, she is an internationally respected expert in the field of ADHD.
Unraveling ADHD: How I turned my greatest deficit into my greatest asset is an inspiration for those who suffer from ADHD as well as for those who live with family and friends afflicted by Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder.
