If you or someone in your family has issues with lack of attention skills or lack of focus, is constantly fidgeting and paces a lot, and can do many things at one time but never finishes any of them, there is a possibility that the person has ADHD. My mission is to help people live better lives with ADD and ADHD.

How AI tools like ChatGPT can combat ADHD paralysis
In April 2023 I was quoted in an article that is now published on Mashable about how chatGPT can aid a person with ADHD. Here are the hightlights of what I contributed:
1. ChatGPT might also come in handy as a memory device, since the tool can log past conversations and generate a topical label for them. So you could, for instance, brainstorm in a chat with ChatGPT as if you were talking to a friend or a peer in your industry. The chat itself would then become your conversation notes. Using it might also help reduce distractions. As someone whose tab count on my phone's browser has long read "99+" I can see the appeal of having one single interface for looking things up.
2. Probably the most powerful aspect of it related to ADHD is going to be in overcoming procrastination. In addition to organizing thoughts, ChatGPT might also come in handy as a memory device, since the tool can log past conversations and generate a topical label for them. So you could, for instance, brainstorm in a chat with ChatGPT as if you were talking to a friend or a peer in your industry. The chat itself would then become your conversation notes.
3. When you think about AI, it's going to help patch up the weaknesses of people in the realms of inattention, lack of focus and organization, and procrastination. That could go a long way in clearing a path that allows a person with ADHD's gifts to shine. There is a connection between people with ADHD and creativity, emotional intensity, and sensitivity as one that can be embraced as benefits that balance the struggles with executive function. AI cannot really replicate any of these things but it can help support them.
