      I’m a retired ( not by choice) RN Case Manager & divorced mother of three independent adult sons who was diagnosed with ADHD ten years ago at age 54. I’m challenged living alone without my nurse identity feeling isolated from my successful sons as I set them free from me. ( they’re busy with their own lives flying independently as it should be)

      Is it possible for me to read your doctorate research results ?
