GG’s right! The ADHD diagnosis puts us in a different box than “normal” people (whatever that means!) Differences between people create opportunities. If you can figure out what you’re good at, you can take advantage of those differences. For example, some people with ADHD get bored easily in meetings (disadvantage), but can remain calm and focused in an emergency, when the people around them are panicking (advantage). Obviously, that kind of person could be very successful in emergency health care, but don’t give them an administrative job!
