Finally had the nerve

My name is Mechelle. I am 18 yrs old. I was DX's with Add when I was in the 9th grade. I have never really been on meds for very long. My mom doesn't believe in add or meds and would only put me on them for a short while whenever the school would contact her about my behavior. I have been on my own for about a month now, as my mom kicked me out the day I turned 18. I work in a flower shop and have 25 days to go before I graduate from high school. I do the best I can by myself. And hope I will someday marry and have children. I like poetry, dogs and want to be a vet, if I can get the $$ for college.
Mechelle

Greetings Mechelle,

Welcome to the ADD Forums. Glad you're here. I too was kicked out, but at the age of 16. I wasn't dx'd until I was 32, but now I know why all the teachers and my parents called me a brat. I hope you acheive all your goals. It's hard work but it can be obtained. Good luck, and I look forward to getting to know you.
