Celebrities with ADHD/LD - “Managing symptoms is a lifetime commitment. You have to be willing to experiment. If one thing doesn’t work, another will. There are alternatives and there are answers.” ~ Howie Mandel, Comedian, TV Host, and Author
Rick Mercer....Comedian, award-winning television host of the Rick Mercer Report, and blogger is definitely one to follow. I'll admit, I didn't actually know Rick Mercer was gay until recently. He does (wisely) keep his personal life private. In 2005, he became the spokesperson for the Walk for Life, a project by the Canadian AIDS Society. And last year, he joined the It Gets Better campaign in Canada, to help GLBT youth across the country. @rickmercer
