ADULT A.D.D. –WHAT IS IT??
Speaking from first hand experience and with great
Joyce Sutay candor, Lion Ron Hudson admitted discovering he had
Secretary Adult Attention Deficit Disorder saved his marriage and
Linda Marin his life. The condition stems from a chemical imbalance
in the brain caused by heredity or from a head trauma;
the results are the same. Some of the symptoms are
Donna Capstaff forgetfulness, tardiness, impatient, short temper, being
1st Vice President unorganized and a general lack of concentration. The
good news is that it can be treated. “It is very important
that you seek a physician
2nd Vice President specialized in Adult A.D.D.” says
Del Tucci Ron. Wife, 1st District Governor,
3rd Vice President Kathy, said the treatments are life changing. We are so
grateful to Ron for stepping out and educating the public
about Adult Attention Deficit Disorder.
