Life with Undiagnosed ADD’
L. Hutchinson bravely reveals the story of his life, the tragic
details of his struggles and futile efforts to be a better student
and son. Bryan eventually was diagnosed with ADD at the age of 37.
Diagnosis and understanding gave Bryan the inspiration to write
his life’s story. It is believed that Bryan’s Memoir
is the first such Memoir about a person growing up with undiagnosed
Release Body: “Diagnosis has been the most liberating
experience of my life.” Bryan says,
obviously relieved and with a mixed smile of hope and wonder.
“I have been in Therapy for over ten years and have been misdiagnosed
for longer than that. I have always known I am different, but I
just didn’t know why or what I could do about it—now
I do and life has started anew for me.”
has written his story to help others understand the truth of ADD,
how it affects a person living with it day in and day out. He wants
to raise awareness of what Attention Deficit Disorder
is and also articulate the positive sides of the disorder. He believes
the negative stigma surrounding ADD comes from
misinformation and the deep rooted belief that ADD ADHD
is an excuse for laziness.
many people are in denial and this denial hurts not only the people
with ADD or ADHD, but it also hurts everyone who
comes in contact with an undiagnosed person with ADD ADHD”
Bryan’s words are said with a genuine intensity and a hint
of dissatisfaction. “Society suffers from the denial of
ADD and ADHD, Relationships suffer,
the schools suffer and the economy suffers. When correctly diagnosed
with ADD or ADHD a person can move on and improve, but while living
undiagnosed the ability to improve is far less likely and therefore
the economy suffers, because the workforce suffers. People with
diagnosed ADD can work much better and accomplish
more than those with undiagnosed ADD and still
millions are already diagnosed with ADD or ADHD,
it is believed that millions of people still go undiagnosed. Some
adults are still at risk of remaining undiagnosed because of misunderstandings
and misinformation and fear of the ADD ADHD negative
stigma, which is still prevalent today.
book is his attempt to help others understand that having ADD
or ADHD does not have to be devastating
or destructive. “There is hope, I have become successful
because I have educated myself about my disorder and I have used
the positive traits that come with the condition of ADD
to improve myself and others can do this too. My book gives examples
of how I have improved.”
Williams, a mother of an ADHD child and
an early childhood educator says “Bryan’s book has
helped me understand my child better from a personal perspective
and has given me fresh and positive insider information which has
helped my family a great deal. I already understood the medical
side, but the human, personal side is also very important, if not
more important. His book is going to be a blessing for millions
of people around the world.”
to the synopsis, Bryan strived to do well in school and please his
parents, but he couldn’t, no matter how hard he tried. He
was always daydreaming and distracted and had trouble accomplishing
his schoolwork, never understanding why he wasn’t like other
students. His teachers and peers ridiculed him for his inattentiveness
at school, while his father punished him for failing grades and
presumed laziness at home.
