Mine Is 144. Whoopie!

I was tested around first grade and scored 144. Ever since, it has been a curse that I cannot break. All through school, I was compared to my brothers who, while also intelligent, scored well below me in IQ. Thanks to a undiagnosed ADD and excess parental pressure (ok, and a bit of laziness) I struggled through school and became mired in depression as I constantly struggled to measure up to my family and friends. I am thankful for my intelligence, but it came with plenty of unintended consequences.
