Re: Working Memory

I hear you loud and clear. I'm 45, when I was in elementary school, I don't think ADD/ADHD was recognized. I was always "Mr. chatterbox", and a disruption. Teacher couldn't seem to put 2 and 2 together. In later grades I just fell behind because of a lack of organizational skills. Studying didn't help, because whatever I read, I forgot almost instantly, and I didn't bother doing my homework. Unfortunately, there weren't any resources for people like me, so I slipped through the cracks. I felt/feel stupid. This is still an issue for me today in my work life, I have an extremely difficult time learning new things, anything, for that matter. They get frustrated, I get frustrated, it's not a good time for anyone. Not many people are understanding of this, they just think I have a bad attitude. So yeah, you're preaching to the choir. How much does it cost to get assessed? I'm a cheapskate to boot so...
