: Hi All,
: I am a 22 year old who was just diagnosed with ADD. I'll spare you all the long story of how much it's affected my school, work, relationships and life in general prior to diagnosis because I'm sure you all know from experience. I'm just curious as to the cause of ADD. I know it tends to be genetic, but what is it specifically? A hormonal imbalance? Chemical imbalance? What makes me this way?? Any info you can pass onto me would be GREATLY appreciated as I'm completely new to this whole thing. I'm relieved to know that there is a medical term for the way I am, but it doesn't heal the past. Being informed might help me to figure out how to stop it from repeating it in the future, though. Thanks in advance!! :o)

Please consider "Women with Attention Deficit Disorder: Embracing Disorganization and Home and in the Workplace" by Sari Solden. I, too, have just been diagnosed with add w/o hyperactivity (1-1/2 weeks ago). I bought this book a few days later and now I'm not an "I" anymore, I'm a "we". I had no clue all my life, and I'm twice your age. My highlighter (and my kleenex box) ran out and I've only skimmed the book. Good luck, Andrea.
