Waaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! I'm confused already. I hope I'm doing this ok. My name is Linda, most people online call me runs. I'm 51 and was diagnosed with ADD when I was 46. I know (now) I've been ADD all my life and never understood why I felt different. Of course, I'm depressed and have been treated for that most of my addult life and I know that the treatment would have been essentially the same anyway. I just wish I had understood some things better and earlier. I have a 13 year old ADD son and my partner is ADD too. It can get really chaotic around our house but we have lots of fun together too. Never a dull moment would be a major understatement. My favorite quote is "It is never too late to be what you might have been." I know that my life began again when I was diagnosed and I am grateful for the second chance and all the ADD friends I have made along the way.
