First time poster…. long time lurker.
I want to publicly thank Rick Green and the folks at totally ADD. 5 years ago I was wallowing in self pitty eating Oreos on my couch wondering why I couldn’t hold down a job and support my family. By the Grace of God I decided to watch a show on WIPB entitled ADD and Loving It!?!?!?!
After watching it, it punched me right in the face. I have ADHD! After getting diagnosed, going through treatment, and utilizing a lot of tools here my life has changed dramatically.
Here are some of my notable “achievements” during the first portion of my adult life: 1 University academic dismissal, 7 failed jobs, 1 bankruptcy, 1 foreclosure, 2 vehicle repossessions, multiple failed relationships, and 100 lbs. of excess fat.
Fast forward a few years and the tides have turned! After obtaining my business degree, I am now employed with a Fortune 50 company as a business Analyst. I’ve been promoted three times in my career to this point, and my income is well over 3 times the average per capita income for my city.
I’m not telling you this to boast. There are many people in this world who are more successful than I am. I’m telling you this because I know firsthand that it’s possible to achieve your goals and overcome this paralyzing cognitive disorder that society calls ADD/ADHD.
It will always be a battle, but its worth fighting! Thank you all very much!wiredonjavaParticipant
