ADHD! It's All Mishegoss

ADHD! It's All Mishegoss

By Mark-John Clifford
ADHD or ADD! What do you think of when you hear those terms? Does the word Mishgoss pop into your head? Mishegoss, Yiddish for insane, madness, and crazy. Sometimes those terms define your feelings when you live with ADHD. Patti and I try to help make these feelings make sense by talking about our own experiences living with ADHD. We're the UNCOLA of content. We're unedited, unscripted, & refreshingly real. We're real people talking about real-life issues living with ADHD, from family to business and everything in between.

ADHD & Mischief
Is there anything wrong with being a little mischievous? Kids do it why can't adults? Why do we blame ADHD on us or our kids being a little mischievous? There's nothing wrong with it. We should be more mischievous in life. Kids learn from it. Kids expand their horizons from it so why not us? Shouldn't we dare the exciting once in a while? There's something do it I believe and there's no blaming ADHD or ADD. You could I guess, but why?
October 11, 2019
