Does anyone else struggle after being diagnosed as an adult thinking about how different their life could have been with an early diagnosis?
I’m currently writing an article for work about my experience with ADHD in order to educate people on the subject and hopefully destroy some common misconceptions about the condition. Part of the article is focusing on how it affected me as a child and through school. I really struggled in school and while I passed my exams and gained a degree I just about managed it. I feel sad thinking about how different things could have been if I could have had help all along. Maybe I wouldn’t have had to settle for second best in things because I was a low achiever. Maybe I could have had a better career, gone to a different University… the list goes on.
