Storyboard Text

  • When you live with ADD without knowing it, you find ways to cope and push your way through difficult situations.
  • As a young kid, I struggled with paying attention in class, staying on task and keeping my desk in order.  Reading was the hardest of all because I wasn't processing anything I would read. 
  • Teachers were calling my parents into conferences about wanting to move me to lower-level classes because they thought I was slow or lazy or both.
  • This led my 2nd grade teacher to confirm her suspicions and send me to be tested for ADD. I was diagnosed with Attention-Deficit Disorder by my doctor. This is my tragedy.
  • I felt very relieved to know that there was a reason that focusing on things was hard for me, that I wasn't slow or lazy.  I have ADD and with some medication - things like studying and staying organized are possible .
  • I think my ADD limits my productivity, however I do work really hard to get pretty good grades of 3.83 GPA. I have learned that by creating a study plan, I can sometimes actually use my ADD productively.  This is my triumph!
