I 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
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.
I am Tom Nardone and you are welcome.
