      My 10 yr old daughter was really upset when we told her that we were going to talk to the school counselor to get her help for her ADHD. I explained that it was a really good thing and it would help her, but she still didn’t want us to do it no matter the benefit to her. I thought that maybe she just didn’t understand. THEN, I went from a top performer to a bottom in a new role I took on at work. I was in position for a year before I finally told my boss. She handed me ADA papers to have my doctor fill out for any accommodation I might need. I instantly felt as my daughter did. I try to tell myself that it will be a good thing, but I still feel like a failure. I try to fight those feelings daily. I will be 40 in a few weeks and was diagnosed at nearly 39. Another interesting fact, I was not having success finding he right medication so I took a genomic test, genesight, I think, and there were 0 medications that are compatible. We also did a similar test for anti depressants and none of the medications that also help with ADHD symptoms were compatible. I am thankful that there are others out there and that I am not alone. Thank you!!
