Talking 'ello mates! - jittery guy from TN

Hi.

i am new to this site but i am extremely glad that someone started it. i live in a very rural town that has no clue how to handle an AD/HD student. In high school i was told by my first teacher that i acctually informed about my AD/HD that i should just quit school. She said this because she beleived that i would never pass a single class. I now live to defie that woman. as of right now i have strait A's in all honors classes.Oh, and I havent told a teacher since then but a few have figured it out.

I am glad that i now have others to talk too that actually understand my plight. i thank you for this site and i hope that it will help me understand AD/HD better.

Hey jittery, congrats on doing so well in school-that teacher was dead wrong. I struggled in school and worked hard for a 4.0 in grad school-I had to prove others wrong and prove to myself that I am smart.

Now go on and enjoy your future. Put that teacher behind you-if she/he is still alive, send them a graduation annoucement-and then walk proud!

Me-VI
