I love the idea of talking to an empty chair, what a brilliant thing to do.

I never really believed in ADD/ADHD. I live in Australia and thought it was just an American fad. There have always been problem kids – I was one myself.

Then my daughter had a friend at school with ADHD. She spent a lot of time at our place and her mother insisted I have a stock of Ritalin on hand.

I was amazed at the difference in her behaviour – this kid went from bouncing off the walls, completely intractable, to a normal little kid within half an hour.

Then when my other daughter told me she thought SHE had it, I was stunned. I had to do a lot of research just to believe it. Doing this, it was like a light globe going on – it answered everything, and not just about her; about me. I believe I have it too.

Now I’m really annoyed at people who are like I was. I understand the skepticism and where it comes from, but I suspect from now on I will be a better person, less judgemental.

Probably I’ve posted this in the wrong section. I’m new to this. I have extreme problems with computers; I simply don’t understand how or why they work.
