I was diagnosed with ADHD about 15 years ago. It's funny how my doctor figured it out. Can you tell you left and rights? No! My hubby joked that he is going to put a L & R on my shoes. I can do NSEW. Anyways..
I've know I have ADHD, it has been so comforting finding this site, knowing I'm not alone in my daily struggles. I was thinking about when I was in 1st or 2nd grade, my father had to come in for a conference because I was getting so many errors on my selling tests, I remember going home and trying to study the words and I just was couldn't do it, I had to make cheat sheets. Then years later I had to read a book then write an essay on it. Here I am the night before still trying to read the book, about 2am I finally gave up and just started copying parts of the book, I know it sucked. But I makes perfect sense now. Can't comprehend the book, waiting until the last minute to finish, even though I had about 2 weeks to complete it. Looking back now I realize why I did what I did.
What I don't understand is why did I just remember this stuff.
