This is the first Add book I bought. I suggest you go the Amazon (which this link will take you to, anyway) and then look at the books that are also recommended there. I read through all the reviews. I learn a lot from them; sometimes you get so much from reviewers that you don't even need the book. I think, considering what you were posting, that if you didn't know about this book, you'll laugh at the title.

"You Mean I'm Not Lazy, Stupid or Crazy?!" A Self-Help Book for Adults with Attention Deficit Disorder by Kate Kelly and Peggy Ramundo.

I didn't finish the book because it is mostly for Add, not Adhd, but it has still been helpful. Of course, there are other reasons I didn't finish the book, but you know that.

My favorite is book right now is "Messie No More" Understanding and Overcoming the Roadblocks to Being Organized by Sandra Felton. (Okay, it got reviewed like crap at Amazon, but it was only two people.) I went to the bookstore and went through a huge stack for a couple of hours and I liked this one. I believe it is aimed at Add and Adhd. She has chapters titled 'ADD adds to the problem' 'Compulsive or just messy?' 'Fatigue' 'Depression'.

This book is about 'why' some people have problems. I need to understand 'why' to believe and feel optimism for changing. She makes more sense than anyone else I have read. Right now I'm on these chapters 'More discipline doesn't work' and 'Working harder doesn't work'. We all know it, don't we? Problems are a massive amount of work. Her approach is aimed at both organization and the mindset, but this book, unlike some of her others, is mostly on the latter.

Readyforchange: I have a lot of problems remembering to take pills. I don't always get the seven-day pill boxes ready every Sunday, but I mostly do now. It was a year or more into starting to try medicines for this before I started using them. I had to count through my pills so many times to figure out if I had taken them already that I finally got the pill boxes out of disgust. After using them for a long time, I need them less; I still need to keep them up or I start backsliding and taking my pills later.
