Living with ADHD
S2 EP #6: Timothy Denevi grew up with ADHD and was among the first generation of boys prescribed medication for this disorder in the 1980s. Upon having an adverse reaction to the medication he was prescribed for ADHD, as a child he began the journey to finding the right treatment. As an adult, Tim wrote a book about his experience titled “Hyper: A Personal History of ADHD”, which is a remarkable book both for its sensitive portrait of a child’s experience, as well as for its thorough exploration of a remarkably complex and controversial mental condition and its treatment. In this conversation, Timothy shares how his life has been impacted by ADHD and how he eventually found healing through individualized treatment and painstaking research.
