Love is like blood; it drains away from many small wounds and leaves a stain you can never remove. My Dad taught me that.
I have ADD...Attention deficit disorder often goes unrecognized throughout childhood. This was especially common in the past, when very few people were aware of ADD/ADHD. Instead or recognizing my symptoms and identifying the real issue, my family, teachers and relatives labeled me a dreamer, a goof-off, a slacker, a troublemaker, a just a bad student.
I was able to compensate for the symptoms of ADD/ADHD when I was young, only to run into problems as my responsibilities increase. The more balls you’re trying to keep in the air—pursuing a career, raising a family, running a household—the greater the demand on your abilities to organize, focus, and remain calm. This can be challenging for anyone, but if you have ADD/ADHD, it can feel downright impossible.
The good news is that,I learned to manage the symptoms of adult ADD/ADHD—even turning some of my weaknesses into strengths. I learned it is never too late to turn the difficulties of adult ADD/ADHD around and start succeeding on your own terms.
