About the Book

Bryan takes us back with him to his early days in school when little if anything was known about Attention Deficit Disorder, a neurobiological disorder that would go undiagnosed well into his adult life, thus creating numerous hardships for him, both in school and at home. He strived to do well in school and please his parents, but he couldn’t. He was always daydreaming and distracted and had trouble accomplishing his schoolwork. He did not understand why he wasn’t like other students. His teacher and peers ridiculed him for his inattentiveness at school, while his parents punished him for failing grades and presumed laziness at home.

Bryan writes an emotionally traumatic account of the years of punishment and criticism he received for having undiagnosed ADD as a child, and how he finally got help as an adult. His intuitive sense that he was extremely talented at some things, motivated him to focus on what he could do well. He contemplated the paradox of his impressive talents and his depressing failures often, which ultimately led him to seek help and finally be diagnosed with Attention Deficit Disorder. Finally receiving a diagnosis of ADD was a life changing enlightenment for him. It has helped him heal the emotional scars of his past and move forward with newfound self-confidence, to more successfully use his innate ADD traits.
