I never knew this week existed. Wow I am totally psyched. I really want to be involved. No one understands how exhausting this disease can really be.

Create a pictures with messages about ADHD to post it in our wall in facebook, twitter.  Make fairs of health concerning all about ADHD, including food, games, all concerns about how its affect our lives and how we can face it.  Look for the famous ADHD atletes or celebrities (sorry for my english) get together and he or she explains how they work with the condition and how parents help.  For example, Michael Phelps, Ty Pennington.  Ask them to post information about ADHD in their pages in facebook and twitter…. We may go to the postal service office and talk to the Postmaster to have a table of information about the conditions and try to recruit people to have a support group.  (Sorry for my english again, please excuse me if Im not write clearly).  Try to find out if there is any legislation for us, if not work for it! Look in our area if there is any organization that can help like Lions Club, Leo Club, Boys Scouts, Girls Scouts, Rotary,  Wear a yellow t-shirt one day of the week, one that have a message in positive about ADHD.  Sorry, I think write too much. Nice day smile
