      As a kid my report cards had notes that said, is a day dreamer, needs to pay attention. I got a D in 2nd grade math! Everything has always been a struggle. Before entering 7th grade I was required to go to summer school because I was deemed too immature. There are two people I consider my friends and I think I alienated one of them and lost her friendahip forever. I have lost a large number of jobs, many because I could not keep up, some because I said the wrong thing. I know I’m depressed.
      Then I read an article about ADHD and saw myself from childhood to adult. It is norhing short of miracle for me. Thank you!
