Overview

Is It You, Me, or Adult ADHD? has helped thousands of readers understand how this highly variable syndrome affects them as individuals and in their relationships. Around the globe, professionals and couples who have elevated their lives with the book's wisdom recommend it to others.


Gina Pera expertly guides readers in making sense of your own Adult ADHD Roller Coaster-helping to:


  • View ADHD as a variable syndrome affecting individuals
  • Realize how later-in-life ADHD diagnosis creates additional issues
  • Revise old misinterpretations that can thwart progress now-for the adult with ADHD, the partner, and other loved ones
  • Heal poor coping responses and dysfunctional interaction cycles
  • Implement supports to completing routine tasks and reaching goals
  • Appreciate how ADHD can also negatively affect the spouses and other loved ones
  • Delve into "denial's" dual nature - physiological and psychological - and reach through it
  • Adopt proven approaches that remain extremely rare in clinical settings, especially couple therapy
  • Be a more pro-active and confident mental-healthcare consumer, especially with medications for ADHD


The science has been clear since 1994, when Adult ADHD was declared a medical diagnosis. Still, the public harbors misconceptions, and that means millions suffer needlessly. That includes millions of couples who can't understand why their lives together are so hard-often despite many attempts at therapy.


The simple truth is: Everyone knows someone with adult ADHD. Yet we often misattribute the symptoms to anxiety, depression, or even laziness, selfishness, "addictive personality," or moodiness. Some assume that ADHD means little boys with ants in their pants. In fact, childhood hyperactivity goes "underground" as the person matures, resulting in a mentally restless state.


Meticulously researched and written by Gina Pera, Is It You, Me, or Adult ADHD? helps you recognize the behaviors where you least expect them with:

  • Sound explanations from highly respected experts
  • Plenty of real-life details
  • Empathy and compassion for everyone affected by Adult ADHD
  • Clear advice on proven treatment options, including cognitive-behavioral therapy for ADHD and medication and practical solutions


The revolutionary message is one of hope for millions of people-and a joyous opportunity for a better life.
