I am a working mom who is blessed with a family full of ADHD - also known as "active alerts" - myself, my husband, and our two wonderful children. As I discover more about the wonders of being actively alert about everything all the time, I have come to realize that I was shaped in many ways by the undiagnosed and untreated symptoms that run rampant through my extended family. We have learned to weather many storms together and apart from each other, as well as the storms we have created in each other. Now, armed with more information than I know what to do with, I strive to find peace within the storms that will always surround my life. I hope that sharing my struggles and my successes will help others find their own way to peace within the storms.
