  1. Thank you for this article, Dr. Grohol.

    I am writing a review of research paper about ADHD, and Neurological advances. Can you recommend a good ADHD resource for that?

    I have ADHD, have 3 college degrees, but still am struggling both with life and work. I was diagnosed at 36, and am now 45. I have worked as an envorimental chemist, a medical technologist, and also tried working at home Custom home dec. items and personal accessories.

    According to my physician, I have all 12 parts of the disorder

    Recommendations please?
