    ADD and Loving It?! Actor Patrick McKenna is after the truth. "Everything you think you know about ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder) and ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) is wrong." In this uplifting and entertaining documentary he talks to researchers, specialists and doctors about ADD and ADHD. He also chats with ordinary Canadians & Americans who are directly dealing with the challenges of this common problem. Interwoven with these insights, Patrick shares his own life story and his personal struggle with undiagnosed and untreated ADHD, and, now, his success in living with adult ADD. Though the suffering is real, Patrick is interested in the good news. When ADD is diagnosed and treated, life can become very sweet. A liability can become an asset. As one expert explains, "This is not a diagnosis to fear. This is a diagnosis to understand and embrace." The program amuses and amazes us by actually presenting the facts-what is known for sure. Patrick and director and co-host Rick Green lead viewers through a lively romp about the symptoms of adult ADD and the five keys to turning ADD from a hidden handicap that sabotages your life to an ally that allows you to soar. The production techniques are fantastic! Patrick laughs at the lies, busts the myths, and finally takes on the most controversial aspect of ADD - medication! duration 1:27:11   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)
