Spinning Out of Control – What Happens When the A in ADHD Stands for Adult?

Spinning with adult ADHD“Can’t you sit still for five minutes?”

Apparently not. But at least now, years later, I have an explanation in answer to my mom’s question, if only she were alive to hear it. Turns out my excess energy is simply hyperactivity.

Perhaps I should have been tipped off by the tempo of conversations with my friend Chris (who was diagnosed with ADD as a child). Our dialogues have always been like a pool game with both of us taking shots at the same time, bouncing rapid-fire thoughts between topics without skipping a beat.

“This book caused memories of my own to resurface, forcing me to look at my past….and so many things made sense suddenly! I was diagnosed two years ago, at the age of 35…but that diagnosis really hasn’t meant anything to me until I read this book!

Today, I move forward. Today I begin the process of truly understanding who I am, why I am that way and what I can do about helping myself. Today is a brand new day.”

– Shannon

“Thank you so much for writing your book ADHD According to Zoe. It was the first book I found written especially for women with ADHD. As a 21 year old woman who just recently got diagnosed, it provided me with so much comfort to hear about someone who went through similar struggles.

Thank you again for being an inspiration!”

“Zoe has a relatable voice that is easy to read and makes you smile. It felt like I was getting drinks with her at the local dive bar and she was giving me tips on how to deal with my lack of focus.”

– Sassy Peach, Book Blogger

Severe Obesity and Adult ADHD: Connection and Cure

ADHD and ObesityIn 2006, at the age of 47, I was diagnosed with ADHD. I’ve been researching adult ADHD ever since. I was taken by surprise when a visitor to my blog, ADHD from A to Zoë, posted a comment about the connection between severe obesity and adult ADHD.
