Thank you for sharing your story. It has come to my attention that your signs and symptoms are very similar to adult gifted individuals -( very misunderstood by our society through ignorance and distorted depictions in the media). Take a moment to consider educating yourself regarding the fact that symptoms of ADD are very similar to giftedness. Here is a connection to a renowned professional on this issue, and brief article to peruse regarding the implications.

With respect for your shared story and care for you,
