Discovery of ADHD brings comfort
by Juliana Morales
I have always had friends, heard of celebrities, this person, that girl, hell, even my brother was diagnosed with ADHD (though I discovered this only when older; my dad decided against medication).
It was ignorant of me to never think that if it was in my family, then maybe I had it to. I never thought of myself as having "a condition". Maybe I did not want to label myself. I don't know about then.
But I know NOW that I am experiencing a sense of peace in thinking that I may after all have ADHD. I still haven't gone to the doc yet but want to soon. I always felt such great frustration in thinking that I could never get things done, that there were so many things requiring my attention, that whatever I was doing at the moment, no matter how important, needed to be replaced by something else even more so; that I was "slow, easily distracted and forgetful."
Until now, whenever I heard of such descriptions of myself, I would fall into depression because I did not know how to fix it, no matter how hard I tried.
Now the world is before me and all I need to do is discover the different methods used in controlling this condition. That there is hope after all for ME....well, that's just it then. There is.
