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

I'm a big advocate for diet and exercise in helping ADHD, it really helps with the jitters and makes your focus better.
I'm a chemistry major. I really love chemistry, but sometimes I wonder if I didn't choose this major out of some masochistic streak or something. Drawing things out does help me, especially with certain problems, but I'm more of an auditory learner, so recording my lectures makes a big difference. It gives me much more latitude when I'm taking notes because I know I can go back and fill in the blanks.

About exercise, that's something I keep saying I'm going to work on... I suppose I need to just DO it, like everything else. I will take that to heart and actually get on the giant treadmill taking up half of our living room. LOL! Luckily, my diet is okay.
