    My ADD coach has asked me to come up with affirmative thoughts that I can carry in my wallet and my iPhone. When I feel overwhelmed by the world I can take a time-out to read them and center myself. I think Dr J has covered these in his recent video, but I found some more I’d like to share. I’m going to add some of these to my resume.

    WE ROCK!

    These are from: Pete Quily – Adult ADD Coach, Vancouver BC

    These are great.

    Highly recommend doing this, but also taking it further. Don’t just recite them, bring to mind an example to remind yourself.

    I know when I’m struggling and convinced I’m a failure… a common theme… it actually helps to pause and remind myself of things I’ve actually accomplished and finished and done. I am not a failure. I just have failures.

    Same as we are not ADHD. We have it.

    By the way, ADDled,

    I’d like to expand upon to what you said. Specifically that “We Rock.”

    I strongly feel that a convincing case can be made to prove we also “Roll”
