"Sorry, I am so ADD," a friend joked when I pointed out that she kept distractedly watching people walk by as we talked. ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder) is a condition commonly joked about to describe moments of distraction or inattention, but is hardly a joke for those who have ADD or have a child with ADD. ADD can affect a person's ability to concentrate, complete tasks, and live a "normal" everyday life. Symptoms appear as trouble concentrating, impulsive behaviors, low self-esteem and anxiety, and even one or more learning disability. ADD sufferers may have trouble with family and social relationships. While dealing with ADD can be a challenge, there are solutions to help someone, child or adult, deal with ADD in a natural, drug-free way.
Even though ADD is challenging for those who have it or are close to someone who does, symptoms can be naturally managed without the destructive side effects of drugs.
