WELCOME TO OUR SUPPORT GROUP INFORMATION PAGE
PLEASE NOTE: The ADHD Support Group is no longer taking place.
We've decided to permanently discontinue the group. For those of you who have been attending regularly know, it's been 8-years - a great run! Apart from the Coronavirus, we had already been considering this option, as other life commitments are calling. And, given the uncertainty about how long the health risks will persist, it makes sense to stop now.
(From Susan) -
It’s been a true pleasure to get to know so many of you and to hear about your struggles and successes. I hope your understanding of ADHD expanded over the years by sharing with a group of peers. While the experience of living with ADHD varies so much from one person to the next, it's been gratifying to hear about everyone’s unique and creative ways of managing symptoms and getting by. Remember that ADHD is real... "You Mean I'm Not Lazy, Stupid, or Crazy?" (from the classic book by Kate Kelly). I hope you can reduce the downsides of ADHD and enjoy the upsides!
(From Steve) -
During the time I have spent with this group, I looked forward each month to sharing, learning, discussing, and listening to you. It also greatly expanded my knowledge of Adult ADHD. It's nice to know that we share many daily struggles and frustrations caused by having ADHD. I will miss this group and the contributions that each of you made in every meeting. Hopefully, with increased world focus on Adult ADHD, new-medical, and non-medical breakthroughs, will be possible. Till then let's celebrate "What we Have" rather than "What we Lack".
Wishing you the best. If you would like to to say hello or send any comments, please feel free to do so using the 'Contact Us' tab above/
