Tame the Struggles of Women and Moms with ADHD
Women, in general, are expected to juggle many responsibilities, from childcare, house management, social events, relationships, holidays, and in most cases, all while holding a full-time job. Society expects women to do all of these things and to do them well. But if a woman has ADHD and is disorganized, overwhelmed, distracted and more, how is she supposed to manage without falling apart?

Manage ADHD in Your Children and Loved Ones
Life is not always easy when your kids, spouse, partner and/or other loved ones have ADHD. Terry knows because ADHD runs rampant in her family. Not only does she have it, but so does one of her daughters. This book will make you laugh and cry, but also give you some real tools on how to manage things from figuring out what to do if you think your child might have ADHD to negotiating relationships in general when ADHD is part of the picture.
Conquer Your Clutter, Disorganization and Chaos
You have ADHD. That means you most likely are struggling with clutter and chaos. When other people jump in to do their laundry or spring clean, you might be left scratching your head, wondering where to even start. If you’re wondering how others can put a meal on the table every night, keep items where they belong, and maintain a tidy desk, this book will take the mystery out of that.
Since Terry, too has ADHD, she understands how difficult it can be to get organized. The stories and articles in this book will offer a lighthearted view on dealing with clutter, meal planning, and more, but you’ll also gain a deeper understanding of why it’s all so difficult if you have ADHD. You’ll also enjoy tips and strategies to help you get through it all.
Thrive with Hypersensitivities and ADHD
Have you been criticized your whole life for being oversensitive? Do certain smells overwhelm you? Do you hear things that others can’t? Do you notice and get irritated by things that others easily dismiss? Maybe you get dizzy at the mall because of the onslaught of various stimuli — noise, smells, even the movement of people all around you.
You aren’t crazy. People with ADHD often are highly sensitive with a finely tuned nervous system. This can cause distress in many, but let’s not forget the positives of being sensitive to one’s inner and outer world. More than likely, you are highly intuitive, sensitive, caring and creative.
Terry is hypersensitive and has ADHD. This book is a collection of personal stories, blogs, and information about living with ADHD and hypersensitivities. Terry’s hope is that you find them enlightening and helpful, but, more than that, she hopes you begin to accept your own hypersensitivities and maybe, just maybe, you’ll find humor in all of this.
Survive and Enjoy the Holidays with ADHD
If you’ve ever been to one of Terry’s presentations, you might have heard the story about her holiday dinner disaster. It’s practically become an urban legend. If you’ve missed it, the hilarious story is in this book.
You’ll also read about how to manage your summer vacations without going nuts, tips on gift giving, and entertaining (not that Terry claims to be any kind of Martha Stewart — not by a long shot!)
So when holidays or vacations come up, pick up this book. Have a laugh or two, but also enjoy the help you’ll receive when dealing with these tricky times of the year.
