About this audiobook

The first self-help audio program by ADD adults for ADD adults!

Attention Deficit Disorder, the most common learning and behavioral problem among children, also affects millions of adult Americans, more of which are being diagnosed with this potentially disabling condition every day.

Now Kate Kelly, a clinical psychiatric nurse, and Peggy Ramundo, a specialist in learning disorders -- both of whom were diagnosed with ADD after discovering it in their children -- bring together their considerable personal and professional experiences to create the essential guide to identifying, understanding, and managing the dynamics of ADD in adults.

You Mean I'm Not Lazy, Stupid Or Crazy?! provides accurate information, practical "how-to's," up-to-date research findings and moral support, and explores such issues as:

the differences unique to ADD adults and their impact on daily life

the diagnostic process

treatment options

personal, family, and work relationships

Already well respected across the country, You Mean I'm Not Lazy, Stupid Or Crazy?! is the indispensable reference for anyone who faces the challenge of ADD on a daily basis.

Is your life in balance?


  1. What is your daily/weekly work capacity?

  2. How much sleep and rest do you need, including "down time" when there are no demands placed on you?

  3. What is your financial bottom line -- how much income do you require to maintain an acceptable standard of living?

  4. How much time should you devote to family and friends?

  5. What must you do to renew yourself spiritually, not just in the sense of religion, but regarding anything that gives your life meaning?

  6. How much and what kind of recreational activities are critical for your well-being?

  7. How long can you work efficiently without a break?

  8. What obligations must you fulfill?

  9. What things are cluttering your life and should be eliminated?

  10. How much time do you spend daily on self-maintenance: grooming, dressing, or health care?

    I realize that this audiobook was published almost 30 years ago; so I started listening with a grain of salt & ready to accommodate for any shortcomings. However, I didn't expect the terrible & practically self-unaware suggestions this is loaded with.
    If you're trying to navigate you're ADHD in the 2020s, stay far away from this audiobook!

    Suspect you have ADHD? Want a quick intro to ADHD? This is a short and sweet overview with some very practical first steps at understanding why you are you. You’re not different. You’re simply not a robot created by the industrial revolution.

    Recommended as a great starting point. Then move on to other ADHD titles that will give you practical ideas for navigating your life in the world of robots.

    Very helpful, practical coping ideas. I don't have ADD, but bought the book because I have cognition problems. Got lots of great information.
