    I am desperately seeking help from Blake. I have a 31 yr old son who is ADHD extreme and after reading Beating Bipolar, well in the book you may as well have used Jason’s name, it was like you were describing him and that the book was about him. We are going thru hell here and I really need help on how to deal with him.
