Short introduction

Hello from the Netherlands.

After being diagnosed with ADD at the age of 46 a lot of pieces fell into place.
I've been struggling with work and relations all my life. An underachiever, and a set of brains that just won't shut up and keeps being distracted all the time.
Besides that, a depression, but I'm coping with that pretty well.
Also highly gifted, probably the reason I've been able to hide things so well, even from myself.

I'm hoping that with a lot of understanding here, I'll finally be able to respect and accept myself.

Re: Short introduction

Now that you have some answers, and hopefully some treatment,
I think you will be able to accept and respect yourself. Welcome.
