Thank you so much for sharing your experience. I also could never study well in common areas, with any kind of music playing near me, or with other people when I was in college. The environment had to be just right and even then I’d often sit for hours attempting to get thoughts out – so frustrating and exhausting.

Do you think you would have benefited from medication when you were younger or did all this only become necessary because of the requirements of working and going to college? I also try to avoid pharmaceuticals as much as possible, but I’m trying to keep an open mind for my daughter.
