So you've befriended this kid?

I wish i'd have known a coworker with diagnosed adhd when i was younger. But i did at 49! she was so random, i finally asked her if she had heard of adhd and yes, and taking ritalin, and she helped me find my psy here. (this was at my job in the law firm).

once she came by to introduce a new intern and we had the strangest conversation, (as usual). i actually saw the intern look at her, then me, with this wtf look on her face.

she ended up being highly disliked for her unorthodox , innovative ways in the department. and also, my boss (you may remember he was a tyrant, but also brilliant), selected her to help him with a case for a big client. some of associates were livid. (saw this because she finally got fired for retalliating by criticising firm partners in public, at some seminar, and i had to print out stuff about it for my boss...)
