Unhappy ADD and other things - December 9th 2011, 03:59 PM

whats wrong with me? I have ADD and can heal to fast to count. I have a stomach condition that causes me alot of pain. It would help to talk to someone who understands this even a little. ADD feels like Dslexyia words jumble around when i read.

These seem to be rather common disabilities, and I know that a lot of my friends have ADD and stuff like that. There's nothing really wrong with you though, as long as you're on medication, everything should be fine.

You are completely normal (: Everyone has some sort of difficulty to face. I know it can be frustrating sometimes, but you'll get through things.

I have ADD too! Right now, I'm also getting tested to see if I have Dyspraxia. This thursday I'm seeing a psychologist about it I have a speech impediment (which might actually be the Dyspraxia) which I still can't get rid of, and turning 18 in two months. We all have our difficulties (: it's about getting through them and enjoying life instead of letting our hardships handicap us.

I mean I was diagnosed with ADD about one year ago. Wow actually huh times fly by O.o I didn't even notice it's gonna already be a year. I started taking medicine about a year ago. At the beginning of this year, I finally got accommodations in school. Before the diagnosis, I was still a good student. I have even in advance classes. Now though, I'm maybe to succeed even more because teachers are aware of the difficulties I have (and I had assumed were something everything went through).

I remember hating myself because I thought I wasn't smart enough. That is not the case with me, and is NOT the case for you. You are highly intelligent, you just don't realize it. Don't look as your condition as something to hold you back, look at it as something to make you appreciate life more. Something that allows you to develop better life skills because you need to go the extra mile. You are really smart, so don't hate yourself, okay?




Sometimes all you need to do is sprinkle a little glitter on someone's raincloud to blend them a rainbow.
Having a bad day?
Need some glitter?: Look, Listen, & Love
(note: I do not own the first two)
PM me ANYTIME if you want to talk!
I'll listen. You are not alone.
