Are you living with an “in-denial” adult with ADHD? Try humor. For starters, check out this short video featuring Canadian writer/director/actor Rick Green and maybe share it with your partner. Then both of you can (I hope) have a laugh.
In case you didn’t figure it out, Rick has ADHD. And guess what? Ava Green, his wife, works with him as video story editor. And together they produced the much-acclaimed GlobalTV documentary ADD and Loving It?!, featuring Canadian actor Patrick McKenna. Here is the description from the TotallyADD website:
The film is an inventive and often hilarious look at adult ADHD – not a surprising approach considering Rick and Patrick worked together on one of Canada’s longest-running and most popular comedy television series, The Red Green Show. Both Rick and Patrick have been diagnosed with ADHD (Rick several years ago after his son was diagnosed, and Patrick in the course of making the documentary) and they share candid stories of life while untreated and undiagnosed, and how they’re successfully coping now.
Last year, while speaking at the CADDAC conference on ADHD in Toronto, I had the great pleasure of meeting these nice folks and am happy to share their groundbreaking work with you. Especially for those who aren’t big readers, I know the video will be so helpful. But it’s the humor that really breaks new ground. The entire documentary is available for sale at the TotallyADD shop.
