Inspired by JonMikal's thread Seems everyone I have ever gotten to know real well in my life has had some kind of problem to overcome in their life. I know most people do not like to share this kind of information, but I am too old to give a damn. I also take the words "the truth shall set you free" quite literally. I shall start. I was born with a minor case of attention deficit disorder (ADD or HDD) As a child I could hardly ever sit still and got countless spankings for wondering away from home, couldn't help it as one thing would lead to anothter thing and soon I was miles away from home. One of the few things I could settle into where magazines, espeacially National Geographic, I could look at pictures all day and travel in mind. I have been called absent minded professor quite often as I am alway forgetting the little things. I don't have it so bad that casual acquaintances would notice, but my closer friends do and we can joke about it Today the ADD has changed to being inattentive where I have a hard time to get motivated or up and at it. I understand that's a normal progression of the disorder. It can be very frustrating at times cause I am alway losing things but I have learned to adjust. I think in the big picture what I have is a small problem and I am comfortable with it. Well if any one else would like to share by all means do so.
