Hi

My name is Derron and im 17 yrs old, i was just borwsing the web with google looking for others with my same name. and i found one one here. Interesting i bumped into this cause i have add too. basically, everything is like lifeless for me, the ability to communicate and have any kind of good conversation is like impossible. What other forms of ADD are there? something just above ADD? Somehow i know that what i have is more difficult than ADD, Maybe ADD but just more symptoms to the point of being almost lifeless, like no heart, no soul almost... it's weird, very hard to explain, maybe thats the best explanation even though it might sound like im just making this up or something. ( I can write and do a conversation on a computer alot better than in real life)

Welcome Derron. I am sure you will find this a place with lots of good info and support. Have you been diagnosed with ADD yet? I would read the book Driven to Distraction. Also go to
ADDresources.org and they have some articles which help tell what ADD is and is not. Hopefully we can put some life back into ya! Good luck!!

.

I was diagnoised (forgot the spelling for some reason) when I was 3 i believe, right after I was adopted. I was told it was because my birthmother was an alcoholic, either that or my father, who was one of those who came, "did it with her" and left. My birthmother was either 17 or 18, considerably young to be able to support me (plus she barely had enough money). Then i ended up in a foster home, 3 yrs later i was finally adopted to a family that i believe ended up (God's plan) showing me God and how much love He has for me.

Thankyou, I will probably not be much of a typer here, i am not good in continuing conversations, The only way that we can probably continue in conversations, is questions (maybe not, we will see). so if i dont reply much, probably cause i don't know how to respond, i do acknowledge that others probably have this same problem but i have yet to meet one person with the same problems (in person) Sometimes i am very good at conversations and everything else, when i pray. but then usually i just forget and i get distracted, for example like my computer.

Hang in there Derron. We are a very patient group and do not care if you type a lot. Just be yourself. There are lots of us and some will be like you and others won't, but we accept everyone as they are.
