Living with adult ADHD can feel like you're in a constant battle with your brain.

Every day, you have to fight to stay in control, to meet your obligations, to not screw up--forget actually living up to your potential. But what you might not know about, and what's even more damaging, is the constant, corrosive emotional stress of a lifetime spent wondering what the hell is wrong with you.

In Focused Forward: Navigating the Storms of Adult ADHD, author and self--proclaimed "ADHD-er" James M. Ochoa, LPC goes beyond the management and scheduling techniques most ADHD books focus on to deal with what really holds so many ADHD-ers back--the emotional fallout of ADHD. He helps readers identify, manage and alleviate symptoms of a PTSD-like condition he calls the Emotional Distress Syndrome, with practical, proven advice including:

  • Understanding the link between ADHD and emotional distress
  • What Emotional Distress Syndrome ("EDS") feels like
  • How to construct an Emotional Safe Place
  • How to recruit your own Mental Support Group
  • Eight essential tools to help you cope
  • And more...

With wisdom, humor, and plenty of (sometimes painful) empathy, Focused Forward will help adults with ADHD move past the pain and shame toward a future full of possibility, balance and joy.
