Rather than review our own movie, ADD & Loving It?!, we thought it would be best to show the impact it’s had. Here’s what TotallyADD members wrote. These are culled from Emails and the comments left on the video of the ‘trailer’ and Emails sent to us directly.

.       “I’m a father of an ADD child (now 15) and I can’t tell you what a struggle it has, and continues to be.  Have received great help in the past but when I watched your show, I was inspired. And even though I know a “ton” about the subject, your presentation was by far, the best I have seen.”- AD

.       “I have lived 30 years with an ADD son and took courses about ADD, read all I could. This is by far the best I have ever seen to help ‘others’ understand what it is and stop telling ADD people to ‘get your act together!’ Thank you, thank you, thank you !!!!”- LLB

.     My parents and i saw this show on PBS, and HAD to get it!! This video was SOOOOO helpful. It had put so many things in perspective for me, even things I thought were simply personal attributes/or setbacks. Sincerely, an EXTREMELY satisfied customer/ counselor/ college student
(Any questions? Just ask me.)

 I am so thankful I stumbled across it one Sunday morning after my diagnosis – I cried, I laughed, I nodded in recognition and felt understood. Thankfully I have been able to see it from the beginning – and cried and laughed and nodded. . . as I have in the 5 or more times I have re-watched. Thank you Rick and Patrick. I find myself really trusting the information because of all the Dr.s in it and giving credence to those Dr.s because they are in it. A logical circle I know, but they sure hit the nail on the head.

.       “Wow!!  Finally a POSITIVE look at ADD & ADHD.  This show is fantastic. Instead of crying like I’ve done through so many discussions and worrying about my now adult daughter, I can honestly laugh!” –PP

 I first saw it on PBS then got it on DVD and it didn’t hit me until I watched the DVD version (5th time watching the content) that the reason that it was not sinking in all the way is that it was chopped up by a pledge drive. -Ki6Wbh

.       Our family just LOVED your show, “ADD & Loving It?!” Such awesome information that was educational, comforting and even hilarious! Patrick McKenna and Rick Green are a funny and charming inspiration to those with ADD.” –JM

.       “I watched the film on Friday night and I loved it! As a teacher it gave me insight as to how my own students with ADD may be feeling. I liked the fast-paced, humorous approach you took to a documentary.” –LW

Thank you Patrick for lending your talent and energy to this project. Its nice to see a familiar face when looking into something that has so impacted me and I didn’t even realize.


.        “I watched your film last night (PVR’d it so I could “zoom” through any commercials), I’ll tell you, I got so “Gotten” about 1/2 way through — my husband started giggling and told me “Well, that explains why we had 16 different colours of paint on every single wall” (When I was choosing a colour for our house – which I still haven’t done. I did paint over the 16 with one crappy muddy bit of yuk,) … I started laughing and then went into hysterical sobs… I have never before been so “gotten” with respect to what I deal with… My hubby saw that these actions are not a choice, nor a lack of decision, but what it actually is… a part of how I operate.” –NB

.     This program helped me, and my husband (to deal with me) immensely. I’ve had A.D.H.D. my whole life, but wasn’t officially diagnosed until last year. I’ve never done any research to figure out how to mange it, this video gave me MANY tools that will help.

.     I’m watching ADD and Loving it?! right now at 3:00 am!! This is my 5th time watching it! It is amazing and I joke about it being my life documentary! I tell my friends that I’m watching my life on TV.

.       “Where and when can I get a copy of the documentary? I watched it with my Mom and Dad last night (all three of us have ADD) and thoroughly loved it. Thanks.” – J

.        That was the best show on ADD I have ever seen. -LN

.     My 9 yr old grandson was diagnosed with ADHD, which I thought was bogus and just an excuse for the teachers not wanting to deal with a highly energetic child. Boy, was I wrong. After watching ADD and Loving It?! I now realize this runs in our family – my mother, myself, my son and my grandson as well as some of my siblings and other family members. Heck, it’s no wonder I thought it was normal! 
I’ve ordered all the information available and have shared this website with my family. Know any good doctors who give group rates? LOL!! -Bettybhee

.       “Thank you for your Documentary!! I loved it~ thank you for putting it in PLAIN SIMPLE ENGLISH…” -C

.     I watched the show a while back and it completely changed my mind. 
My opinion of ADD used to be that it didn’t really exist and that it was just an excuse for people. I’ve made comments such as, “The cure for ADD must be leather because our father’s belt made us pay attention”
Thank you for opening my eyes and relieving my ignorance. It’s great to see celebrities promoting science instead of conspiracy theories and pseudo-science – I’m looking at you Jenna McCarthy and Oprah.


I just loved this documentary. It was so informative and I sent a link to all my family and close friends to watch it... I have just started exploring your web site and so far, I love it! Keep up the good work.

.     THANK YOU! This is a funny, interesting and it gives me hope for myself and my kids with ADD. 
But, I’m praying that this movie will be translate in French so soon… (PLEASE!!!!!!)
my kids don’t speak English enough to understand everything….It could SO encourage them …they are 11 and 13…they are not diagnosed …yet but we do have an appointment.
Merci beaucoup :O)
