Hi Dr. Hallowell, I love you and I do not even know you! I thank you right along with my precious counselor (who gently and lovingly recommended I try medication) and my medical dr. (who prescribed the medication and recommended I get your book-Delivered From Distraction) here in town for being a part of the wonderful answer to my puzzling and sometimes amazing existence. I was recently diagnosed with ADD and am thrilled! The world is coming together for me now and I feel like I have a new lease on life. I can hardly write this note because my eyes are so full of tears. But I did want to let you know first of all if you have not finished writing your book on success stories of people with ADD, to consider my story. It has 1000000000% more meaning to me now that I finally have some perspective with my struggles for 40 years, and especially in my marriage.
