)-- Adultadhdpodcast.com offers free audio shows on coping with ADD/ADHD.
"Abby", a high-tech worker in Seattle, has a secret. She has Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, better known by the initials ADD or ADHD. Symptoms include the inability to maintain attention, impulsive behaviors and/or motor restlessness. AD/HD, if left untreated, can result in difficulty with personal relationships, staying employed, or completing an education.
"I haven't told a lot of people about my ADD because once you let the cat out of the bag, you can't put it back in," she said. "It's a problem I deal with every day. Most of the time, I can manage it. But I have to keep alert on how this disorder affects me. I do that through my podcast."
A podcast is a web blog (blog) that you can hear. It contains episodes of audio content collected together in a show. Anyone can click on the link and the computer's media player will play the sound file (mp3). Or people can listen from anywhere when they download the sound files onto a portable mp3 player like an iPod. Hence the name, podcast.
Abby's podcast can be found at http://Adultadhdpodcast.com. The podcast offers advice on how to manage Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. Abby talks about the treatments and medications for AD/HD. She gives tips on dealing with problems of focus, attention, organization, planning, impulse control, social interactions and other issues.
And it's totally free. "I write and produce this blog and podcast because I have ADD. I want to reach out and help others who have it."
Current figures show that Abby could be helping a lot of people. More than 27 million people own iPods and about four percent of the adult population has Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.
