Confessions of an ADDiva: Midlife in the non-linear lane

by Linda Roggli

$18.95

I’ve stopped apologizing for door-knobs. And cocktail tables. And desk corners and open drawers… You see, I found out I have ADD…”

That’s on the first page of “Confessions of an ADDiva: Midlife in the non-linear lane,” a brand new book about ADHD and midlife women by Linda Roggli. And it gets better from there.

Written in whimsical style and formatted for easy ADD reading (yes, you will actually FINISH this book!), “Confessions” is a candid account of Linda’s own ADD journey from diagnosis to menopause to enlightened transformation.  You’ll know you’re in good hands when she introduces those troublesome neurotransmitters as “Sarah Tonin,” “Nora Penn Effrin” and Dope A. Mean.”

 Packed full of information that is served with a good twist of humor and thoughtful self-examination, “Confessions of an ADDiva” is a unique and powerful addition to any ADHD woman’s bookshelf.

The Disorganized Mind: Coaching Your AD/HD Brain to Take Control of Your Time, Tasks, and Talents

by Nancy Ratey

$15.99

Here is a life coach in book form to help you overcome the inattention, disorganization, and impulsivity that gets in the way of their getting things done. What follows is both a practical guide to taking control of the symptoms with which individuals with ADHD struggle, and an inspirational summons to believe with the author that living a rich and balanced life -- "a life you love" -- is possible. By providing anecdotes from real life, and by citing strategies that she and her clients have devised to cope with their ADHD, Ms. Ratey demonstrates how readers can compensate for the specific attention inconsistencies their ADHD brains manifest, and reduce or eliminate the burdens they, and consequently their families, so often bear. There's no magic, she insists. But there is choice. The book makes a compelling case for choosing Nancy Ratey's coaching techniques as the first step of the life-changing journey ahead.

Pieces of a Puzzle: The Link Between Eating Disorders and ADD

by Carolyn Piver Dukarm, MD

$6.95

People suffer daily from the symptoms of eating disorders. For some, however, eating is not the only area of their life that is out-of-control. In this book, Dr. Carolyn Piver Dukarm, an eating disorders specialist, focuses on the overlap between eating disorders and Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and points out how diagnosing and treating both disorders can provide the missing piece of the puzzle that holds the key to recovery for many individuals.

Divided into six sections, covering the spectrum from diagnosis to treatment of both disorders, each section contains "guidelines" or specific action steps that the reader can take. Participation is encouraged through directed questions and exercises.

Sections include:

  • Diagnosis of eating disorders and attention deficit disorder
  • Finding the motivation to recover
  • Nutrition as an important part of the treatment
  • Medication and supplements
