A story of an ADHD kid stricking back.
First 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 →

Sometimes, bad things happen to people who are not ADHD. Difficult as this may seem, non-ADHD people get divorced, are fired from jobs, be 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.

In High School I heard teachers say, “I guess that is all you want to do with your life so just go out and get a job and get a paycheck.” Yes, I have done that very thing, but I did not do this because they said I would.
I did not want a career then, nor do I now. I think it is fine for people who do. I respect people who have committed themselves to a goal, stayed the course and achieved the goals they have set. I too thought about this. The difference is they said, “Hell yes! I am going to go for it!” and I said, “Piss on it.” Continue reading
Tom is the kindest smartest and funniest person I have ever met. He cares so much about kids and adults who have ADHD. You guys just dont know how excited he gets when people read him. Each time is no different than the first time. Tom and have a great thing, and although constantly disagree we seldom fight. Tom is my Best friend and husband and I’m proud to call him that. BUT,
He can really be a pain in my ass. Tom is unique, he claims he is so busy that he doesn’t have time to prepare his food. So he will eat abnormal portions of readily available food. Once he came home from work and thought warming leftovers to cumbersome so he took my entire fruit bowl upstairs and ate it. Who in the Hell, eats a bunch of bananas and half-dozen apples in one sitting? Continue reading
It was recently told to me in an anonymous email message, “Tom, you are not ADHD. You would never be able to maintain two websites and respond to so many people if you were, and you damn sure would not have been able to write a book in six days.” The person went on and on about the difficulties he was having believing I was truly ADHD. Being he was anonymous, I could not respond. This man is not alone in this type of thinking. A while back, I was reading a thread in my favorite Facebook group. A man was in there saying to some of our members, “There is no way, anyone with ADHD, could ever graduate from college”. I hope I don’t sound overly decisive, but this line of thinking, is complete and total bullshit. Continue reading
In the ADHD groups I am involved with, there are many discussions about day-to-day challenges. Laundry seems to be a big obstacle people are having. The folks at ADHD People, and I have come up with a new theory that will revolutionize the task of doing laundry. We aren’t going to change the WAY you do your laundry. We are going to change the WHEN you do laundry. We are going to lighten your load so to speak.
I am not the guy from where’s Waldo. I am Tom Nardone and it has been my pleasure to help you in the past. Some of you may remember my story entitled, The Theory of pants. It is now with great pleasure I present to you, our latest ground breaking discovery the “The Theory of Diminishing Filth”
I think before we determine how to manage our laundry, we must first determine what causes laundry to be necessary in the first place. The reason of course is simple; our bodies. Continue reading
I have met a lot of ADHD People over the last couple of years. There are some that desperately need to be accepted by everyone and there are those who simply don’t give a shit if everyone accepts them or not. They are just content to be who, and what they are. It is with the, don’t give a shit crowd I find myself a part of today. For a child, I do understand the dilemma of needing to be accepted by everyone. I too was once this way.
As an adult I do not understand it. Continue reading
