Hi all - first time admiting this..

Hi everyone. I'm glad I found this forum although I'm not exactly the most social person. Very recently (out of curiosity & boredom really) I decided to google stuff, among them was ADD. I don't think my jaw ever dropped before I read the Wikipedia entry. So many things suddenly made sense! I was overwhelmed!

I've been "forgetful", "careless" & "never paying attention" since 5th grade. Standing in the hallway everyday because of forgetting books / homework / etc... was not fun. But nobody back then knew about ADD, let alone the closed traditional society I live in. I am thankful though I found out about it now before I made any huge life decisions.

I am not officially diagnosed. Just saying the word "psychiatrist" here will make you the outcast / freak. I know I have it, & someday I'll get a professional to say it.

Till then, I have my articles, books (that I try to force myself to read) & this lovely internet to help me cope. Nobody knows, & you strangers are the first people I ever tell. I hope to make some new friends here & maybe learn a little more about this disorder
