"ZeSquishmitten" of San Diego, CA

I'm "ZeSquishmitten", name not listed for privacy protection.

Grew up with many 'trained experts' (teachers, special care administrators, etc) noticing what they felt were strong symptoms of ADHD. Barely made it through high school without treatment... Ten years later I can't get further in the workplace without a college degree, and I'm staring this beast in the face yet again.

Already taken steps to get professionally diagnosed, been working carefully on finding a solution. Just here to get some resources, and some tips as I prepare to attempt higher education. Still trying to identify a few things that confuse me about my own condition.
