ADD/ADHD

Overview

"The best way to think of ADD is not as a mental disorder but as a collection of traits and tendencies that define a way of being in the world.  There is some positive to it and some negative, some glory and some pain.  If the negative becomes a disabling, then this way of being in the world can become a disorder.  The point of diagnosis and treatment is to transform the disorder into an asset."
