Re: In med school and no I didn't try to get diagnosed with ADHD just to help me stud

Haha! My old enemy math. I remember we had to take speed tests in middle school and I always dominated those but once I got into any class where I had to memorize formulas and tons of rules I started to falter. I took AP Calculus my senior year (AP= advanced placement where you took a national standardized test at the end for college credit). Besides missing over 35 days of school that year due to a different problem, I could never pay attention which ended with me receiving a 1 (lowest score possible).

I always made really dumb errors in math (usually addition or subtraction) just because I ran through it too quick

One of the really noticeable things after being on meds I've noticed is that I don't fill out the wrong answer on bubble sheets because of carelessness and I'm not always the first one out of the room. My errors weren't enough to cause me to fail but were still frustrating.
