i saw the equity officer the other day to see if i can have special exam conditions. she said with documentation from a doctor to say that i have adhd, that yes, i certainly can. i can have 10 mins extra working time per hour, and 5 mins extra read-only time. and i get a separate room.

so now i have to find a doctor who can help me.

Well I'm doing all correspondence, no more classrooms (thank God) and then I am doing a co-op placement next year. I'm finally close to graduating after a 6 year stay in highschool, in what should have been a 4 year program. It's not that I am stupid or anything, I skipped grades early in school. Just well not only ADHD, but life situations have made passing courses incredibily difficult.

Each year i too say that I am going to be more organized. And that actually isn't my problem. I have no problem getting organized. I'm actually relatively neat. My biggest frustration is in the classroom. The whole learning. I test terribly. I always do my homework with music and then I get in the classroom and all i hear are pencils clicking. Drives me crazy! I can't organize my thoughts b/c I can hear them. Is that weird? When I was in elementary school I wasn't tought how to cope with ADD or that it even was possible. I was sent to a doctor to get diagnosed and I've been on ritilan ever since, and i'm a sophmore in college now.
Are any of you on medication? How does that effect you in school? In your social life??
