In 2008, the Global Television network in Canada gave Rick and Ava Green the green light to begin shooting a documentary. Rick gave it the working title Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder in Adults: Symptoms, Diagnosis and…”Oh Look – Cows!“   Global TV recommended a shorter title and ADD & Loving It?! was eventually born.

As Rick and Ava began shooting interviews for the documentary, some things became painfully obvious.  First was the amount of misinformation and fear that surrounds ADHD—no one could believe that we were looking for facts and not controversy.  Second was the lack of help for anyone seeking a diagnosis. There’s a shortage of doctors trained to diagnose and treat ADHD and it’s a worldwide problem.

ADD & Loving It?!  turned out to be an inventive and often hilarious look at adult ADHD. This was not too surprising, since it featured actor/comedian Patrick McKenna (and his wonderful wife, Janis), who worked together with Rick on the long-running Canadian television comedy series, The Red Green Show.  Both Rick and Patrick have been diagnosed with ADHD–Rick several years ago, and Patrick during the making of the documentary.

For his work as the film’s creator, writer and director, Rick was honoured with the prestigious Celebrity Transforming Lives Award from the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health Foundation.

 Despite the documentary’s success, it quickly became evident that releasing ADD & Loving It?! wasn’t enough.  A companion website, TotallyADD.com was founded and launched in 2009 by Rick’s company, Big Brain Productions Inc. to provide an ongoing resource and community for adults with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADD/ADHD), their families, employers and caregivers.

We also launched TotallyADDShop.com to provide a resource for a wide range of informational books and videos. Of course, there’s stuff that’s just for fun there, too (Rock Star AD/HD tee-shirt, anyone?).
