Hannah’s Story

I read a lot of the other stories and all I can say is “me too.” I didn’t learn about ADHD until I was 35. I wish I could have a do-over…or maybe not. Life WAS pretty rough, but made far more difficult b/c of my undiagnosed condition. As a baby, I managed to routinely…

Deborah’s Story

I too have really bad memories of school and even the parents and the school kids. We moved a lot when I was growing up so that was hard too, I never had friends or even any memories of friends. I had such trouble learning everything and being made fun of on a daily basis…

Sandi’s Story

Opps, oh, oh, I forgot, I’ll get to it, you’re not going to believe this, I did what? I made a mistake, I mixed it up, I slipped up, I lost it, I’ll get to it, it won’t happen again I’m sorry. This is how I began 85% (a guess) of my conversations most of…

Bryant’s Story

About a year ago, I was diagnosed with ADHD (Inattentive Type). I was in 8th grade and my GPA was in the sewers. (It had already fallen past “toilet” status.) The diagnosis came as no surprise to me or my parents. This lack of surprise is most like lt attributed to some crucial facts. Fact…

Megan’s Story

Greetings all! I have been reading the stories here, and I thought that I would offer up some of my coping mechanisms. Our strange and misted life can seem like a living hell to those who don’t know – don’t understand what we are going through. I’ve been depressed and defeated oh-so-often; more than once…

Darling’s Story

I am 52 years old. As long as I can remember, I’ve felt ‘different’ and ‘weird’.
