Eileen Bailey is a freelance writer, specializing in writing about ADHD, anxiety, autism, sexual health, skin care and skin cancer as well as other health topics. She is the author of The Complete Idiot's Guide to Adult ADHD, The Essential Guide to Overcoming Obsessive Love and The Essential Guide to Asperger's Syndrome. Her fourth book, The Complete Idiot's Guide to Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, is due out in late 2014.
Eileen Bailey began her quest for information on ADHD 19 years ago, when her son, then age 10, was diagnosed. At the time, Eileen had little knowledge of this condition, other than what she had seen on television. But reading about the disorder helped Eileen to understand and help her son through school. He has since graduated from high school and is looking into a career as a tattoo artist.
Although there were books available on ADHD, Eileen sought out support groups to help provide her with information on how other parents were coping with the daily struggles. Not finding any support groups close to her home, she and her husband developed a website, ADDHelpline, as an online support for parents raising children with ADHD. Eileen wrote articles to provide information and monitored the chat and forum. Within months, they were receiving visitors from around the world, all sharing the same concerns and questions. Both giving and receiving support helped Eileen tremendously.
In 2001, Eileen accepted a position at About.com and began writing for their site on ADHD. Over the years, Eileen has written hundreds of articles on all aspects of living with ADHD. She has been a guest on several radio shows, and her articles have appeared on many websites as well as in local magazines.
Eileen believes that understanding about your health condition is essential to working with your doctor and taking care of yourself. With this in mind, Eileen has expanded her writing to include different health topics. Her goal is to provide the information you need to know to make the best decisions you can to manage your condition.
