      I absolutely love ADDitude! It has been one of the most important sources of information for me to understand my adult ADHD as well as my child’s. My struggle is that I am drowning in information and get so engaged in reading great articles. I keep looking for specific solutions, but only become disappointed to see comments like, “this is will empower you to recognize what is happening…” I would love more specific action items included in the articles. Am I the only one who feels this way? One specific article that I loved was the article about an ADHD mind being like an intersection with cars. I need more specific techniques to implement when I catch myself in the moment that I am responding with the ADHD mindset. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

      I read the same article. It talked about “The Intersection Model” and mentioned creating your own stop signs to help deal with the traffic. I just don’t know how to make a stop sign or where to put it. Maybe I need to make a rule for myself that if I have a certain impulse, or if someone reacts to me in a certain way, I need to immediately step on the breaks. I may not know why or understand that there’s a problem, but I could use those clues to tell me I need to stop before making another move. I think this is the article you’re talking about.
