Hi dj, the H in ADHD is for hyperactivity, a physical manisfestation of the ADD. By the time most people are adults, they don't appear hyper. They may not be able to sit still but have found successful ways of hiding this, gesturing with their hands, swinging their legs. I walk superfast, I have never been outwalked, even in Toronto.

It's all about organization. To put it in the simplest way I can imagine, it's like if something doesn't interest you (which is usually details) your brain will not let you do it, period. This is how I experience it. I continuously planned and tried to go to the grocery store, so much of my life revolved around this (getting to the GD grocery store) because I am too skinny. I usually made it to the grocery store about 2 times a year, can you imagine how someone's, who is like this, self-esteem can suffer. I'd head off to the grocery store, end up at the bookstore, come home 3 hours later not even realizing until the next day, I was suppose to go to the grocery store....Shit! So on some level your friend is probably slogging himself about the details of his business. Does he know he has ADD? Maybe, suggest him hiring someone.

more symptoms, craving stimulation, getting it, not being able to handle it and then flipping out. I almost flip out 2 times a day and cry on average 2 times a day and get really excited about things, that most people think are tiny and silly, 3 times a day. I feel like I'm living in the land of the living dead. hate conventions, rules, procedures and structure - structure, from what i understand, is the best thing for it. anyway, I'm learning about it so i can learn to live my life to the best that I can. Sound like you? Janice
