Earwax is on a distinguished road
Hello, here's a bit about Earwax

Hello all, Aaron here.
I'm the classic ADHD poster child. I was diagnosed when I was around seven or eight years old, spent my school years often separated from the rest of the class due to constant talking and distractions, passed most tests with flying colors only to receive poor grades due to not doing/losing/forgetting homework, projects, work folders, ex cetera. I ended up dropping out of high school and getting a GED, then I got a job at the UPS distribution hub where I've worked the last fifteen years. Started dating my old HS sweetheart in 2011, we got married, bought a house, and had a baby.
I was kind of a loner just drifting through life in my twenties, but once I settled down with serious responsibilities and a relationship, I realized how much my ADHD has effected and does effect my life. In the past I had vague ideas about how ADHD meant I was distractible, forgetful, and a bit energetic. But as I began facing more and more issues in my marriage as well as the many important things that I struggled to keep up with, I began looking into the how's and why's of my disorder. Now that I have a better understanding, I'm doing what I can to take full control of my life. I've been on medication for a couple years, and now it's just a matter of adapting to and organizing my life around my ADHD.

I'm happily married to an amazing woman and we have three wonderful daughters (two are from my wife's first marriage). My oldest daughter has been diagnosed with ADHD, and we suspect my wife has it as well.

I spend my freetime playing guitar, video games, reading, and watching nerdy stuff with the wife. I'm working on making a little workshop in the garage, with hopes of building guitars in the future.
