Over 50 but much younger at heart.

Re: Hello

I'm over 60 and wasn't diagnosed until I was a grandmother.

How old were you when you were diagnosed (if you have been)?

Re: Hello

Not over 50, but 50 on the dot.

Welcome to the Forum!

Cheers,
Ian

Re: Hello

It's kind of odd to me, after being considered learning disabled for so long, to finally beging understanding what ADD is. It is much easier for teens now.

Re: Hello

I'm way over 50! ADD is SO complicated...but so was my whole life while I was so clueless as to what the heck was wrong with me. Better to know, really. My DH is a Vietnam vet also.
