As an adult living with ADHD and Giftedness, Stacey Turis is an expert on being weird. After doing daily battle with her quirks for 35 years, she finally decided it was time to hug it out and accept her differences to live a peaceful existence. She has successfully learned to view the world of ADHD and Giftedness through her “special eyes” and maneuver through life accordingly. Stacey realizes that her ADHD and giftedness give her a magical perspective on life that comes from intimately engaging with the universe in ways that don’t meet the eyes and can’t be explained. She considers that a good thing. Stacey lives in Texas with her husband, two kids, a dog, three cats, and eight goldfish.
