A story of an ADHD kid stricking back.

littletommyFirst grade; art class; we had a project where we would take a piece of construction paper and write our names on it with glue. Before the glue dried, we would sprinkle glitter on it and it made this shiny glittery image of our name.  Somehow mine came out better than most, and my teacher was very proud.  She held it up for the whole class to see. I was proud for that brief moment. Continue reading →

Getting Hired and Fired with Tom Nardone | ADHD Podcast

TOM NARDONE SUNDAY JUNE 15th AT 7pmEST 4pmPST

Greetings Everyone! I am Tom Nardone and I am ADHD. I will be doing a special podcast Sunday night with Justine Ruotolo on her internet radio show.

In my twenties, I was quite unfocused and hopped from job to job frequently. I was fired from or quit over twenty jobs in a single year. My purpose is not to brag about being fired so many times as impressive as some of you my find this to be. However in order to be fired 21 times you have to be hired 21 times. That IS impressive.

It is this impressive skill of being hired,  I wish to impart unto you. I will be sharing what I have learned about the process of the “Job Interview”, and other work place scenarios. For many of us, this ritual we must go through to get hired is a dreaded one. The Job interview is for many of us, a meeting where we worry the entire night before about each and everything we may do or say wrong.CONTINUE READING

To-do-lists? are fun!

Tom-nardone-to-do-listTo-do-lists are something I make from time to time. I know, when I finish my to-do-list, I am most likely not going to do anything on it. My to-do-lists end up being nothing but lists of historical things I should have done but didn’t. It is basically, a prophetic glimpse into the future to determine the things in my life I will not achieve. Continue reading

TOM-NARDONE-ADHD-KITTENI don’t really have a desire to learn more about the condition we call ADHD, but being involved in ADHD groups on the internet has, nevertheless, taught me about it. My interest lies in seeing how this affects others in the course of their lives. The science of it holds no interest for me, and I don’t have a goal to become more educated about the condition itself. Continue reading

TOM-NARDONE-ADHD

I do not judge anyone for the tidiness of their house or of the room in which they spend most of their time. People who live in hampers shouldn’t throw dirty laundry. There is however, one thing I can do, and I do this better than anyone else on earth. I can help you see the squalor that is your den, living room, or bedroom could be your saving grace.

Organization, I Can Live Without You.

tom-nardone-duster-222“Get yourself organized!” I heard this every day of my life while I was in school and while growing-up, but I never did it. I am also lazy in general. I don’t blame my ADHD for being lazy, but I do believe it is why I have difficulty doing things I don’t think are important. I am forty-two-years-old and still am not organized. The only difference today is I don’t worry about being organized. Continue reading

An ADHD Marriage

My wife Yvonne and I have been together for ten years and I could not imagine being with anyone else. I put her needs before my own and neither I, nor she have to work at it. It just happens purely by instinct. We have what you might call an ADHD marriage, I am ADHD and she is ADHD. We do not work at our marriage because we are the best of friends. The two of us genuinely have a need to see the other happy as often as possible. When one of us is unhappy the other can find no comfort. Continue reading

ADHD People: Sometimes, It’s Not Your Fault.

shit-storm -tom-nardoneSometimes, bad things happen to people who are not ADHD. Difficult as this may seem, non-ADHD people get divorced, are fired from jobs, get kicked out of their houses or apartments, and have car crashes. Yes, they too will at times receive the shit end of the stick, and it might even be something for which they are the cause. ADHD People are not the only ones weathering the storms of life.
