    Seems like more and more, people are dealing with this challenge! Whether it is the presence of technology, or simply an increased awareness of a tendency, acknowledging the challenge is always the first step toward smart coping strategies. Many thanks to people like you who are de-mystifying and de-stigmatizing ADHD, and who are providing practical solutions for making life great, no matter who we are!
