My name is Bryan Hutchinson and I have ADD. I was first diagnosed with ADD at the age of 37. Today I have a much better understanding of who I am compared with just a few years ago. All the pieces have come together. It has been a very liberating experience! I want to share that experience with you in various ways. One way, which has been an emotional and necessary way, has been to write a book about my life and creating this website ADDer World, to help raise awareness and understanding for our so called disorder, which can be a gift instead of a disorder.
I have a deep interest in helping others find help for issues which could be related to ADD/HD. Having lived most of my life with undiagnosed ADD I know firsthand how problematic and hard it can be to have extreme difficulties and not know why. I have written a book which tells of my struggles and why diagnosis was helpful and liberating. I also explain how I have used and continue to use my ADDer traits for success and happiness. ADDers are wonderful and creative people with fantastic attributes and it’s about time we stand up and use the positives to bring us ever forward to be happy and successful.
Bryan writes an emotionally traumatic account of the years of punishment and criticism he received for having undiagnosed ADD as a child, and how he finally got help and achieved great success as an adult. His intuitive sense that he was extremely talented at some things motivated him to focus on what he could do well. Finally receiving a diagnosis of ADD was a life changing enlightenment for him. It has helped him heal the emotional scars of his past and move forward with newfound self-confidence, successfully using his innate ADD traits.
