Submit your ADHD stories to ADDled

4 years ago

In celebration of ADHD Awareness Month - all October, every October, y'all - I've decided to take the leap into guest posts.

 If you or someone you love has been diagnosed with ADD or ADHD, consider submitting a short contribution to my new series:



This series will attempt to de-stigmatize the image of people diagnosed with ADD and ADHD as lazy, stupid, and the butt of many undeserved jokes.

 Please find the envelope button to the right of this post and submit your contribution to me via email.  All micro essays and memoirs up to 1,500 words will be considered.

 Stories about ADD and ADHD can be funny, poignant, awkward, and redeeming and I want to see them all, so long as no one with ADD or ADHD is treated with disrespect.

Thank you so much for helping me dispel myths about ADD and ADHD.

You, my friends, rock!
