Introducing ADHD Man of DistrActionAttention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is well-represented here on Psych Central through Zoë’s incredible ADHD From A to Zoë. I’ve long enjoyed her perspective and viewpoint, especially when it comes to sharing living with attention deficit disorder. It’s a concern many people face — even adults — and it’s one that is no small thing for people who live with it.

That’s why it’s my pleasure today to introduce an ADHD blog from yet another perspective, this time a man’s: ADHD Man of DistrAction. Kelly Babcock is a freelance writer who has spent 50 years knowing he was different, but not knowing why. Growing up with a supportive and encouraging family he managed to find a way to fit in, well aware that love and luck played the biggest parts in any success he enjoyed prior to his diagnosis.

It wasn’t until a chance encounter with another person with ADHD that he realized, from her speaking openly about her own diagnosis and ADHD in general, what made him different. You can learn more about Kelly’s background and journey here.

Head over to the blog now and give Kelly a warm Psych Central welcome: ADHD Man of DistrAction. Thank you!
