Just wanted to post that ADHD Awereness week starts tomorrow. I noticed it on Chadds website. On Chadd's Facebook page they did make a post about there being a lot of media coverage about ADHD this week and going over myths and misconceptions.

It remininded me about Sarah's thread of what the forum gives us (it offers a lot) the forum has given me a lot of useful knowledge about ADHD and how it affects different people.

My goal this week is to arm myself with even more knowledge. I hope everyone has a great ADHD awareness week!

I try to arm myslef of more knowledge, but my desire to learn is kept in check by my often poor motivation and wandering mind. :o

How many of us forget until 11:59pm on the last day of the week?

So far me and awareness donīt do so well together, but I think itīs a great thing to do. Before me and my son were diagnosed (inattentive) I always believed that adhd was an excuse for kids to be naughty.

It was random that I remembered it. It is now in my google calendar, I can set it to repeat yearly but I don't believe it will work out exactly.

To spread awareness to my friends and family, I intended to write and post an "essay" on Facebook. I also intended to finish writing my ADHD "poem" (http://www.addforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=133022). I'm thinking I might just tell everyone I still plan on doing those things, and if I don't finish—pffft, who am I kidding, I know I won't!—I will at least have spread awareness about one of the symptoms of ADHD....

However, I have been making myself more aware by reading two books about ADHD I am borrowing from the library. I can't say it's because of ADHD Awareness Week, though, because to be quite honest I'd forgotten about it, and I checked out these books last week before I remembered. ;)

Oh, and to "celebrate," I did put a dent in cleaning my bedroom tonight.

Anyway, seriously, what has everyone else done to spread awareness this week thus far? :)
