Hello Everyone!

My name is Sam,

I'm 25 years old and in the last semester of obtaining my MA! I was diagnosed with ADHD when I was 5 years old, but my father (being the proud stubborn individual he is) did not believe in it so I was never treated until high school. By that time I grew out of the hyperactive part of it and just can't keep my thoughts focused on one thing. I have to try very heard to listen to people or my mind will wonder and I won't hear a thing. I can read half a book and not remember any of it. I somehow read it and my mind will think about food or some movie watched last night and I retain nothing. I've tried quite a few medications over the years and have finally settled on one that seems to help. I still have problems but I'm loads better. I even had to increase the font size because I couldn't focus on it (I'm sure most of you have the same problem). Well thanks for letting me vent a little.

Re: Hello Everyone!

Welcome!

I appreciate your increased font size! Both because of my ADD and my poor eye sight.
