Just realized I didn’t answer River’s question.

Re where do ADDers fit?

It’s no surprise so many of us are in “Show Biz.”

I’ve heard it said that L.A. should be re-named “ADD-Town” (though I personally prefer, “Swan Lake” <g>)

We suck in mundane occupations.

We blossom in any arena that demands high concentration (because of the ADD “gift” of hyper-focus).

BUT … there’s a catch.

We “gotta wanna.”

If the arena doesn’t catch our imagination, fugetaboudit.

If it does – especially once we have the right meds – we excel.

To put it another way…

I can’t work 9 to 5 to save my life (if there’s no reason, other than money, to be there).

But, I will happily work 5 to 9 (that’s 5 a.m. to 9 p.m.), 7 days a week, if the arena catches my fancy.

(Been doing that since 1972!)

Hope that partially answers your question.

MUST get back to work.

Cheers till next time,

GN
