The Sunday Times is a British newspaper owned by the well-known socialist philanthropist, Rupert Murdoch.

Columnists working for that newspaper often indulge in click-bait style articles designed specifically to confirm […]

There's no neat boundary around an ADHD diagnosis
When I grew up in the UK in the '70s and '80s, mental health and mental disorders may as well have not existed. They were never talked about, never mentioned in conversation and the closest you got to seeing them on TV was when someone went bonkers and got taken away in an ambulance by […]

More and more of us are being diagnosed with ADHD later in life - here are some tips I've picked up since being diagnosed at the age of 53.

ADHD Reality#7 - The Young and the Restless
By the time I was 16 I think I hit peak-hyperactivity. I did nothing except piss about.

ADHD Reality#1 - Never Do Today What You Can Put off Until Tomorrow
Procrastination is a way of life for people with ADHD and we become masters in busying ourselves doing anything but whatever the fuck we’re supposed to be doing.
Life with ADHD
