ADD is so hard to deal with in general but much harder as a child. I really hate the fact that a majority of people in this world claim to have ADD. Just because you are forgetful and cant pay attention does not mean you have ADD. I was tested on many many different machines, sleeping tests were done, computer tests were done. I have been on over 12 medications to try and help it. I had a horrible time in school growing up and I really regret haing to go through that. I feel that if I had a better shot in school on the right med rather than trying to work through school on 10 wrong ones.. I would be better off. Oh well if I hadnt gone through that I guess I wouldnt have the life I have now, and I have to say my husband and son are blessings in my life..
