Crushing My ADD

2013-06-16t13-45-38_3I am Tom Nardone. I am forty-two years old and very ADHD. The photo you are seeing is a current shot of my man-cave where I currently sit. I am as plagued by ADHD as the next person. I have quit many jobs and been shit-canned from many jobs. I spent many years doing field research on ways not to succeed and how best to have a miserable life. It took a long time for things to settle down for me, but today things are great.

Today I spend lots of time writing on my blog. Some of you are familiar with my tales of awesomeness that I write as I whore myself out for the praises and accolades of my followers. One of the things I write about is ADHD. I did not realize it but Alan Brown of ADDCrusher is one of my readers.

I have had the pleasure of watching the ADDCrusher videos recently, and I can’t say enough good things about them. I am and always have been pro-meds. I believed that any attempt to combat ADHD without the use of medication was futile. I myself had been plagued for so many years with so many problems that I just wanted to give up. It was not until I got on medication that I got any relief or any hope.

I had closed my mind to the Idea that anything but medication could serve a person with ADD/ADHD. My long held belief was dispelled by the man in those two videos.

Alan Brown, through his words, has taught me more about ADD/ADHD in a few

ADD Crusher

days than I have ever been able to learn on my own. Alan communicates in a way that I have never seen before. His videos are dynamic and exciting. The videos depict  Alan speaking, while in a barrage of animations that he  interacts with. This really helps create a lasting memory of what he says, and I found it very easy to pay attention. While the videos are informative, and the animations correspond beautifully to them, the best part of this is Alan himself.

I found myself laughing out loud several times through most of his presentation. This guy is really funny. I did not know him before I began watching his videos, but I really expected the same stuffed shirt, boring, video with some asshole who was afraid to say anything to me that might hurt my gentle ego, and cause me not to buy the second video. That would not help anyone. Alan was not afraid to say, “That’s wrong”. He didn’t say this in the video. I just sort of figured that is what he meant when he said, “That’s Bullshit” (he did bleep it out though.) Hell, I thought that was pretty easy to understand. Nobody buys a video to better their life unless they are actively engaged in activities, which are bullshit.

The reason these videos were done in an entertaining way, I think is Alan’s understanding and his guarantee, that the people who will watch them, will need to see them over and over, before they are able to get all the information. He even says that if you are not going to watch them over and over than you might as well be playing a video game. Yes ladies and gentlemen the rumors about Alan Brown are true; they are indeed made of brass.

There are many websites and/or articles about ADD/ADHD. 95% of them are useless, academic, techno-babel, bullshit. There are only two types of websites about ADD/ADHD; those that are helpful and those that are not helpful. The people writing the articles that are not helpful are usually kind enough to indicate this by littering their site with the logo feces of pharmaceutical companies or any number of other companies that are paying these people to confuse others. ADDCrusher is no such site.

If ADD Crusher were a radio station, then you would find them by tuning in to WIIFM. What’s In It For Me. ADD Crusher is a great organization for which I am happy to have found. Alan conveys many things in these videos, but nothing comes across more clearly than his sincerity. He truly has a burden for those trying to make their lives better.

I will look forward to watching these videos over the next few months and I am anxious to implement more of Alan’s methods to see what I am able to find. I am excited about my life again, and I want to crush my ADHD.

About Tom Nardone

I write about everything that I can find humor in. I don't write about politics because I don't care what group of people are chosen to destroy this country. There are enough people doing that anyway.

      Agent 54, How about when either one of us figure that out we will tell the other one. Does that sound like a deal? for now i just write.

      • Agent 54 says:

        Writing is all I know how to do too. Right now I’m too sick to write. I really don’t know how I’m writing this. Maybe it’s just an hallucination from all the meds. If this isn’t real, please don’t respond. That would confuse me more.

    My response to this ” 95% of them are useless, academic, techno-babel, bullshit” is they are the linear thinker sympathizers. Although, i do love my Adderall would rather have it at my bekon call than not. I have to admit sometimes when I take one it makes me feel like I was just grounded from going to the roller rink after having skates in hand.

    • Tom Nardone says:

      I too take Adderall. 30mg twice a day. I am incredibly irritable without it. Before I began taking it i was irritable all the time and EVERYTHING pissed me off. I felt nothing but contempt for every thing I saw. I get that way if i go to work without it, but I can control it and it is no way near as bad.

      Thanks Lady, You are awesome

    I get the contempt thing. Mine was more inward so it manifested in the form of anxiety. I was able to turn that around long before understanding, or knowing I had ADHD. Which was the best idea ever cause, cause now my moods range from manic excitement to mad scientist hyperfocus. Which I have no complaints about and love that I get to choose which level I want it play at given, situation, day, or just personal persuasion. As I mentioned before sometimes I feel grounded when take my Adderall. It’s usually cause I want to have an Adderall free day just too see what adventures it can lead too. But in order to deal with grown up stuff just gotta take it.
