Astounding ADD Discovery!! - Letter to Doctor

by C.C.
(Maple, ON)

Dear Dr......

I have been going through troubled times. My mind is constantly thinking of changing my job. Since I moved I have been applying to various job postings and no success. I was getting very discouraged and stopped applying.

I would look at the postings and tell myself, do I really want to do the same job I am doing now? NO, I want a better job that pays more. So, what is it I want to do?

Then I would think if I want a better job I might have to go to school. But I don't have the energy to go to school after work and I can't go full time because I need an income.
I am bored with my life and don't know what to do next. Meanwhile, the thoughts don't stop and I have no gumption to do anything to change. My body feels restless and my head is heavy and foggy and constantly busy..noisy. But, no action on my part.

I decided to go see a counsellor/life coach and see if this could help me. Maybe, guide me in the right direction, as to what type of job I can consider, with my experience.
Or something. That's when I met John.

When I walked into his office he asked me to tell him why I was there. After I spoke for awhile he said, he wanted me to fill out a questionnaire for him. So I did.
After he looked at it, he started to explain how some people have very low electricity/energy in their body that doesn't allow them to achieve their potential. He called it ADD. I was blown away!

I couldn't believe that no one realized this earlier on in my life. During my school life especially. I hated school, I thought I wasn't very intelligent because I couldn't understand what the teacher was talking about or retain it. It was difficult to listen and concentrate. I was bored most of the time. Teachers would always say, she is too shy, very quiet, doesn't participate, needs to try harder, needs to be more attentive.....

All these years I thought something was wrong with me. Why am I so unhappy, bored, without any desire or interests? Everyone else seemed to be enjoying life, making friends, doing things together, but not me. Doctors thought I was depressed, so I tried all types of medication, went through therapy, group therapy, nothing seemed to help. I was still the same.

So Dr. ......., here I am at the age of 54 feeling discouraged that half my life has passed me by. I would like to have the hope that this ADD medication that John is speaking about can help me. I need to try this and if it doesn't help, fine, it is what it is. But if it does, who knows I may actually like myself and begin to live instead of just existing.
I really need to try this!!

I am Highly Privileged to Discover Your ADD
by: John

Dear Miss,

As I listened to your life story, I was reminded of the enormous and painful side effects ADD delivers. People may have labeled you "lazy" or "stupid" because of your forgetfulness or difficulty completing tasks, and you may have begun to think of yourself in these negative terms as well.

ADD that is undiagnosed and untreated can cause problems in every area of your life:

1) Physical and mental health problems. The symptoms of ADD can contribute to a variety of health problems, including compulsive eating, substance abuse, anxiety, chronic stress and tension, and low self-esteem. You may also run into trouble due to neglecting important check-ups, skipping doctor appointments, ignoring medical instructions, and forgetting to take vital medications.

2) Work and financial difficulties. Adults with ADD often experience career difficulties and feel a strong sense of underachievement. You may have trouble keeping a job, following corporate rules, meeting deadlines, and sticking to a 9-to-5 routine. Managing finances may also be a problem: you may struggle with unpaid bills, lost paperwork, late fees, or debt due to impulsive spending.

3) Relationship problems. The symptoms of ADD can put a strain on your work, love, and family relationships. You may be fed up with constant nagging from loved ones to tidy up, listen more closely, or get organized. Those close to you, on the other hand, may feel hurt and resentful over your perceived "irresponsibility" or "insensitivity."

I am looking forward to coaching you. One of the most powerful resource is gaining good knowledge about ADD.
