The Problem with Fighting ADHD with Effort

Posted 04-12-12 at 02:55 PM by KCTang (Adapting to ADHD)

But that type of thinking has its limitations and can bring a lot of frustration.

This is just from my own experience, of course. But I've banged my head fighting my ADHD this way, a lot. Now...

I am slowly moving towards health?
