New here, my story

Hello! Glad to find so many people who deal with the same trials on a daily basis that I do.


First, I wanted to say that ADHD has caused many disasters in my life. Without a proper diagnosis, I proceeded to run through 15 jobs in 4 years, lost my fiance' and my new born son, and alienated many of my family and friends with impulsive behavior.


Second, I need to say that we are NOT disabled and destined to fail. With medication and therapy, we all can turn the corner and reach our limitless potentials.


We all have the ability to become mathematicians, scientists, accountants, business owners, and (most of all) happy with whom we are.


What people with ADHD can do, we can do extremely well. Let no one tell you that you aren't special, because you are!


In some ways, I view ADHD as an evolutionary step in the human mind. Just wish the evolution would hurry up!
