Primarily Inattentive ADD: An Update
Soooooo, I have not posted in a while. I went back to almost full time work and have not had much time to keep up with the blog but I wanted to post an update.  My sons are doing well.  My son with ADHD-I is a senior in high school. He has many tools he uses to get his work done and you can find them all by trolling through my previous posts.  He is now captain of both the Robotics team and the Cross Country team.  He spent the last two summers in California working with a Financial Tech company and this past summer he worked for 12 weeks earning $15 a hour.  They loved him, it was a great experience and he feels really rich. He still religiously drinks his coffee every morning and another cup if a long night of studying is ahead.

My younger son, the one with ADHD-C,  has switched schools and he is no longer in the private prep school that my eldest son attends. He is doing as well as can be expected at the public school.  He hates school but enjoys playing LaCrosse. He is on Vyvanse which he finally admits helps him and which he now tolerates well. He is thinking about perhaps attending an academy to be trained and get a certificate in movie, film and television production. We live in Georgia and the state has made a large push to attract movie and TV production companies to film here.

Nothing else to report. We have been busy at home with College Applications for my eldest son. Talk about needing checklists, reminders and spreadsheet help... Please keep in touch. It is always good to hear from you!!

Oh, by the way, I Wanted to give you guys a heads up on Psychiatrist Michiel Bosman's evidence-based mental health self-help website Open Forest (https://openforest.net;  He has a articles on his site with overviews of some of the hottest ADHD topics today.  He updates the post regularly with new posts. I recommend you check it out. 

Additude Magazine Article on "Boosting Your Brain Activity".

The Winter 2015 edition of ADDITUDE magazine has a bunch of cool ideas (including  two of mine for folks with Inattentive ADD) for "Boosting your Brain Activity.  They asked a bunch of folks how they keep their ADHD brains in shape and the responses are helpful.  If you do not subscribe, buy a copy!

My life is busy.  I am pretty much working full time now.  This does not leave much time for anything except family responsibilities and enjoyment.

The family is all fine and my kids are doing well.  They have very different strengths and weaknesses but now that they are both in high school, I feel that they are well on the road to managing their ADHD symptoms on their own.

My eldest is in the midst of his Junior year in high school and is knee deep in testing, AP classes, clubs and practicing learning to drive.  He is doing well in school.

The little one is a freshman in high school and is happy to be at a new school where the sports he loves are played.  Academics continues to be a struggle for him but the new school is a much better fit. 

Keep your letters coming.  I always answer though I have been very neglectful with regards to posting regularly. Have a great holiday season!
