Every year, millions of withdrawn little girls and chronically overwhelmed women go undiagnosed with Attention Deficit Disorder because they don´t fit the stereotypical profile: they´re not fast-talking, hyperactive, or inattentive, and they are not male. Sari Solden´s groundbreaking study reveals that ADHD affects just as many women as men, and that the resulting depression, disorganization, anxiety, and underachievement are also symptoms of ADHD. Newly revised and updated to reflect the latest clinical research, the book explores treatment and counseling options, and uses real-life case histories to examine the special challenges women with ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) face, such as the shame of not fulfilling societal expectations. Included is a brand-new chapter on friendship for women with ADHD. Three empowering steps - restructuring one´s life, renegotiating relationships, and redefining self-image - help women take control of their lives and enjoy success on their own terms. 1.

In my room I have an original piece of artwork by Sally Huss which says, ´´Around me I wear a coat of many colors, fabrics, and textures. It’s made of friends and family here and no longer here, far and not so far. They are all part of my coat which keeps me warm wherever I go.´´ A few summers ago, I noticed a hole in that very coat. One of my best friends developed an eating disorder. As the disorder progressed I knew I needed to find help for her, and fast. I made the decision to approach her, express my concerns, and offer my support. The extraordinary thing is, despite her fears, she put her trust in me and leaned on my shoulder. This book not only contains our story, but a guide on how to approach someone you love, be it a friend or family member, about their potential eating disorder. It provides resources and insights regarding body image, dealing with your own issues, treatment options, risk factors, and much more. Most importantly, this book is a guide and teaches the listener how to approach a peer about the incredibly sensitive issue of an eating disorder. There is even a workbook at the back to help you lay out your approach. I hope you find this book useful, encouraging, and empowering. Check your coat; are there holes? If so, reading this book may be the first step to patching some of them up. Amanda J. Roberts received her PhD in Medical Psychology at the Oregon Health & Science University in Portland, OR.

Jenni had been in an abusive relationship with Ed for far too long. He controlled Jenni’s life, distorted her self-image, and tried to physically harm her throughout their long affair. Then, in therapy, Jenni learned to treat her eating disorder as a relationship, not a condition. By thinking of her eating disorder as a unique personality separate from her own, Jenni was able to break up with Ed once and for all. Inspiring, compassionate, and filled with practical exercises to help you break up with your own personal E.D., Life Without Ed provides hope to the millions of people plagued by eating disorders. Beginning with Jenni’s ´´divorce´´ from Ed, this supportive, lifesaving book combines a patient’s insights and experiences with a therapist’s prescriptions for success to help you live a healthier, happier life without Ed.

In our fast-paced, impersonal world, we all need to love ourselves a little. We need to find some worth within us, to believe we are capable of loving and being loved. We need to know we have reasonable chances of achieving our goals and making our way through the maze of life´s challenges. But what happens when our views of ourselves become totally distorted from reality? What happens when we falsify who we are and create images that, while grand and important, have no root in reality? We become narcissists, and the line between our fantasy worlds and our real worlds blur. Left unchecked, this destructive distortion will ultimately progress to the most severe form of narcissism: narcissistic personality disorder. But how would you know if you are a narcissist? Narcissists are basically too caught up in themselves ever to recognize or admit they suffer from narcissistic personality disorder. In his groundbreaking book entitled Are You a Narcissist?, author Larry Tate delivers the ultimate guide to determining if you suffer from narcissism and narcissistic personality disorder. Whether you are living with someone who suffers from narcissism or whether you recognize yourself as someone sliding in that direction, this audiobook is an intriguing listen about a personality disorder that was identified generations ago but is more prevalent in our modern world than ever before. 1.

Narcissism is a topical subject. It has always been known to afflict famous personalities, movie stars, and corporate stars. The interest in narcissism has now peaked with a new high profile personality reported to be suffering from it - Donald Trump. Do you see him as a narcissist or a messiah of the American masses? Listen to this book to analyze the pros and cons of this controversial disorder. But narcissism is much more than a disorder vexing the rich and famous. Is a narcissist powerful and ruthless person, like he is made out to be? Or is their bravado, swagger and bluster only a mask to protect their delicate personality? How do narcissists perceive themselves? How others perceive them? How do narcissists see others perceiving them? Are narcissists intentionally fooling or deceiving themselves about their larger-than-life image? If so, what purpose does it achieve? There must be some reason and method to the madness. This book comprehensively addresses this dilemma. Modern media bombards you with messages which range from bizarre to overtly spectacular. Reality television gives you a vicarious peek into the lives of the rich and famous. The naked truth is purveyed in center-spreads of glossy tabloids. There is no escape from obsession and narcissism. You are forced to identify with one glam star or other. The cult of narcissism is within your reach and lounging just around the corner. Is it possible to escape from the clutches of narcissism? Narcissistic Personality Disorder: How to Identify, Understand and Manage Narcissism will reveal the inner secrets of a narcissist to you. 1.

Lisa felt that she should know better than to hate herself for being fat. As a professor of women´s studies she knew she should love herself just as she is was - all 420 pounds of herself. But the truth was, she couldn´t manage to love herself, try as she might. And even after two lap band weight loss surgeries, she still suffered from binge eating disorder. In Lisa´s words, she could eat ´´two whole pizzas, three Entenmann´s cakes, and a two-liter bottle of soda in a three hour binge´´ all to punish herself for existing. Something had to change. Lisa´s second lap band weight loss surgery had failed over a decade earlier. But she was too poor and too defeated to attempt a third. But after more than 10 years of suffering daily binges, unbearable feelings, abusive relationships, and failing physical health, she knew she couldn´t continue as she had been. In 2006 she underwent gastric bypass surgery and began the long and difficult journey to health and happiness for the first time in her life. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Lisa Sargese.

Many of my readers come to me with lengthy stories of narcissistic abuse that they have endured. They are at a loss as to how the person they care about seems to have two distinct personalities. These individuals are seemingly dealing with a real-life Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, and they are usually at a loss as to how to relate to them or how to cope with their abuse. There is clearly an epidemic of narcissism - a contagion of sorts - that is occurring across the globe. Narcissism is generally handed down from one generation to the next. It is said that nearly one in four people has narcissistic tendencies. It is likely that the number of narcissists will only continue to increase. Many people wonder why or how the narcissist seems to have two distinct personalities. They cut their partner down, and then they retreat back to them with apologies and gifts once they realize that they cannot easily replace them. They have circular conversations, as if they are unaware of things they have said and promises they have made previously. They tell lies about their whereabouts. It is curious whether or not these behaviors of the narcissist are a part of their conscious awareness. It appears as though the narcissist is only vaguely aware between his ´´good´´ side and his ´´bad´´ side what truly goes on in his personality and in his brain. He stuffs his misbehaving side down and only displays the ideal image that he has valued since childhood. He knows that this ´´good´´ side will provide him acceptance, admiration, etc. He knows that his ´´bad´´ side will be punished, rejected, and feared. Children who are abused or in hostile environments as babies and toddlers can start to show signs of disassociation. They ´´zone out´´ so that they do not have to hear the fighting and warring that is going on between the parents. They create their own imaginative world. 1. Language: English.

Living with a chronic illness is tough enough on its own, but it can become an overwhelming burden when we believe widespread myths about chronic illness. Without a strategy to overcome these lies, we can descend into a listless existence, even as people of faith. In Perfectly Abnormal, Chris Morris tears down the erroneous and misinformed beliefs surrounding chronic illness. From the unique standpoint of being both a parent of a special needs daughter and having a seizure disorder himself, Chris guides listeners through difficult terrain as he shreds the eight most common myths the chronic illness community faces. Then he begins the conversation of developing a better theology of illness, with the intent of bringing his listeners to a place of intentional excellence in spite of their conditions. 1.
