As a child I was 100% ADHD, I had to act on every one of those colored bouncy balls bouncing around that contained my thoughts, acts, emotions,etc… The end result was half chasing 100 rabbits and catching no rabbits.

Around 35 years old or so I realized all the sudden I had switched to ADD, I still had all the bouncy colored balls bouncing around, but at some point I quit trying to chase all of those 100 rabbits at once and drive myself crazy, instead, I would kind of freeze up and just could not choose which one to start on??? Then never start on any!

So I guess I flipped from ADHD to ADD, but in either case Dexedrine puts me back to center and on track.
