ADHD Attorney

A blog I created about being an attorney with ADHD and Asperger's.

Re: ADHD Attorney

Interesting.
The person who "pushed" me to get a formal ADHD diagnosis is an attorney.
Before he got diagnosed, he couldn't even handle college.

No, I don't proofread my postings. I type, I click submit. Then cringe if I go back & read it later.

Re: ADHD Attorney

Yeah, I was a high school drop-out. It was hard to get through junior college, and university. I struggled. But I was diagnosed when I was in my first year of law school and when I started medication, it was like night and day.

Recently, I went off medication for about 3 months. I was a wreck. Things were starting to fall apart. I am in much better control on meds.

Nice to have a diagnosis because then you can at least finally figure out what "it" is. It certainly isn't stupidity.
