    Dear Dr. Hallowell,
    The upside was most helpful to me. To appreciate my gifts. I am still looking for a dr. who understands ADD. I recently found a Psych. Nurse who seems caring and thorough, but treats me for depression, which I think is a by-product of the ADD.

    Have a great day,

    Dr Ned , you are always wonderful when it comes to ADHD, the best I like is the upside you always talk of ADHD something that makes us unique . The downside is manageable with some structuring and medical help. I always read , listen and view you when I am broken or I need help . You have been source of motivation ….have a great day
