@wiredonjava I just scrolled down my post for the first time(whoa!). It seems silly that I posted most of my life in a nutshell. I’m glad someone read it. It’s funny as I am learning about ADHD I have read many times that ADHDers tend to be creative and would be good at photography, hairdressing also firefighting, construction tradesmen and entrepreneurs. Been there and done them all before I was diagnosed. Coincidence? If I had been diagnosed before I did all of that who knows where I could of gone. However the optimist in me says I have to look back and perhaps be thankful for all of those experiences. Maybe there was a reason my life has been so unpredictable and put me back in a job that I never thought I would come back to. We can’t change the past but I’m telling you what, the future sure looks a lot brighter. Did you know Steve Jobs, Richard Branson, Albert Einstein and Bill Gates have been diagnosed or rumored to be ADHD? I
think know there is hope for you and I.
