Description

Now updated with edited narration for listening ease.

In Focused Forward: Navigating the Storms of Adult ADHD, author and self-proclaimed "ADHD-er" James M. Ochoa, LPC, goes beyond the management and scheduling techniques most ADHD books focus on to deal with what really holds so many ADHD-ers back - the emotional fallout of ADHD. He helps listeners identify, manage, and alleviate symptoms of a PTSD-like condition he calls emotional distress syndrome, with practical, proven advice including:

  • Understanding the link between ADHD and emotional distress
  • What emotional distress syndrome (EDS) feels like
  • How to construct an emotional safe place
  • How to recruit your own me support group
  • Eight essential tools to help you cope
  • And more....

With wisdom, humor, and plenty of (sometimes painful) empathy, Focused Forward will help adults with ADHD move past the pain and shame toward a future full of possibility, balance, and joy.

Daydreaming can help your ADHD

Where does Focused Forward rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

A new take on ADHD. I loved the part talking about the neuroscience behind daydreaming as part of the Mental Support Group & Emotional Safe Place. Also knowing that the ADHD brain is wired to be more trigger happy with the limbic system, the tools to calm the inner lizard - when it inevitably thinks that performance review is an attacking T-rex - was super helpful.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

Narration was a bit stilted in places. And although bullet points and parenthesis make for good visual variety in a book, it was a bit crazy making listening to punctuation being read out loud as "bullet point", "quote", "end quote", "parenthesis", "end parenthesis".

Great book. I needed to hear this stuff.

While the content was nothing short of brilliant, the reading was a little distracting. And for an ADD mind like mine, that meant there were a few points I had to listen to repeatedly just to hear them. The main cause of the distraction for me was everytime the reader paused the narrative to say "parenthasis" or "quote". I don't need the verbalized puctuation to get the point. In fact, in most cases, it stopped me from getting the point. I pushed through the little annoyances, however, because the content is just so great. Thanx for writing such an awesome book about the emotional side od ADD. It has made a huge difference in my life. Now on to the next shiny ADD book.

Great content - distracting narration

I was so excited to listen to this book. The content is something that is important to me. The narrator was good except for the fact that every time there were parentheses it was stated in the narration as "begin parentheses and then end parentheses."That and the lists that were bullet pointed, the narrator would state "bullet point" at the beginning of each new item on the list. All of this was so distracting I couldn't listen. I feel like a book written for people who are easily distracted should have as few distractions in the narration as possible. I will try and read the book itself, which is not as easy for me, because I really want to hear what this author has to say. I just can't get through the audible version, which is disappointing.

AN ADDer's God send TO GIVE TO family & friends!!!

I felt like he was reading me my own life story! I'll be buying the paperback. If you know anyone with ADD, please tell them about this book! The CONTENT in this ADD book, is LIKE NOTHING ELSE I've ever read, and while some authors have touched upon the subject of emotional stress in adult ADD, no other has explained it in depth, as intimately as this one. I'll be using all of his advice, re-listening to this book each week, and using his explanations, verbatim, when people ignorantly dismiss ADD as a fake illness. This is a very rare but so desperately needed book. Thank you to the author!!!

Some of the content is priceless

Full of tested strategies, this book made suggestions I would never have thought of, that truly appeal to those with ADD/HD. The author describes adult ADD/HD with sometimes painful, sometimes hilarious clarity. Start with part II (as he suggests you can). I found I was burnt out (waiting for the point) from part I by the time I got there.

Annoying

If you must have the information in this book, I strongly recommend purchasing this in print form. I personally was distracted and irritated to the point of not being able to absorb what is likely great and useful information. The frequent reading aloud of parentheses and bullet points could have easily be avoided by using inflection. With hopes of declining frequency (parenthesis, of the reading aloud of parentheses and bullet points, end parenthesis), I tried to muster through this audiobook. There are only two more chapters and I just can NOT. I normally wouldn't write a negative review, but if I can save just one person , it will be worth it.

ehhh, lost intrest half way through

the book caught my intrest and had me hopefully reading/(listening ) , waiting for new insights that were for sure going to solve my problems ;) Then about half way through, I lost hope. I did keep listening though, just incase, but it seemed more like the book was advertising the authors life help Center and electronic brain therapy than an actual self help book.

Sensible ADHD help

Ochoa gives sensible advice. This is not quick fix stuff, the Emotional Distress Disorder of ADHD is very real and lifelong. But I am not afraid of it anymore.

Fantastic. Informative.

Great for the ADHD person ESPECIALLY the last 2 or 3 chapters about ESP and MSG. No they dont mean what you think they mean lol his humor is GREAT and he writes from experience ( he has ADHD himself) as well as a therapist so he knows and understands us. He GETS us. Worth the read/listen. With good books like this i usually listen first the get a hard copy and listen again as i read along and highlight so I can get it " under my belt." The ESP( Emotional Safe Place) ie meditation and MSG ( Mental ...sorry i forgot what it stands for at the moment) but those things are worth the whole thing and are life changing already for me.

Bullet Point - Terrible reader

Bullet point - Terrible Experience - open parenthesis - and I mean it - close parenthesis

Bullet Point - Clear voice but totally idiotic reader.

Bullet Point - The book has a lot of lists - open parenthesis - and things in parentheses - close parenthesis

Bullet Point - begin quote - A little - end quote exaggeration is not what is happening here, it really is this bad.

Bullet Point - The narrator emphasizes every single item of punctuation.

Bullet Point - This is terrible because the book has many bullet point lists and parentheses

NOT just tips and tricks:realistic, kind guidance

I loved this book as it deals with "the one thing" we struggle with most-finding ourselves in that storm of emotions again. I got a lot of validation and understanding for myself, learned how "normal" I actually am, and will take a lot with me on my journey. Thanks for the years of work on this book.
