ADDer Scoops Top Award

If you wanted any proof that ADD/ADHD doesn't have to hold you back in life, you couldn't do much better than Daniel Bedingfield who scooped the Best British Male Solo Artist award at the Brits this Tuesday.

His official website, DanielBedingfield.com, stated that "Although currently in New Zealand recovering from his recent car accident, Daniel gave a delighted acceptance speech by phone thanking his friends, family and management and of course, he would like to thank all his fans for their support." Danielís innovative debut album, Gotta Get Thru This has been certified X5 platinum and over 1.5 million copies of the album have been sold in the UK alone.

Daniel confirmed last year that he had ADHD, in an interview with Simon Hattenstone for The Guardian. The article, aptly entitled 'I'm absolutely nuts', stated that, "At 15 he was diagnosed as being hyperactive, and at 18 he was given the drug Ritalin. He says it transformed his life. "Three weeks later, I discovered I could think before I spoke; that there was a box to put the thoughts into, and then speak them. After a year I stopped taking it, and I could still use the box. I'm told that the most difficult time for anyone with hyperactivity is the transition from child to adult. And that's when they really recommend you taking it. At 18 I remember saying for the first time, 'I like myself.' " He had friends, confidence, and was making good money as a web designer."

We at adders.org would like to add our congratulations. Well done Daniel!
