Before he received a diagnosis of ADHD at age 47, comedian Rick Green was best known for starring in The Frantics, The Red Green Show, Prisoners of Gravity, and History Bites. As he learned about adult Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (aka ADHD or ADD) and began to understand his own particular 'flavor,' everything changed. After co-producing the acclaimed documentary ADD & Loving It?! Rick, and his wife Ava, found themselves among the most influential and respected sources of information on this misunderstood syndrome. Their website, TotallyADD.com combines humor and humanity with solid expert advice. While it is estimated that 3 to 7 % of the general population has ADHD, for people with epilepsy estimates range from 12 to 57 percent. Rick's journey from chaos and suffering to understanding and success can offer insight and hope to everyone.
