Directly my ADHD has caused me severe difficulty and lifelong struggles, but such difficulty and struggling has given me insight and empathy into other people, especially those with complex behavioral and emotional difficulties.

I have a lot of empathy for others who have not had the most fortunate circumstances in life, this is without a doubt due to the disadvantage that i have suffered.

For some reason also, I am very good at interacting with younger people and children.
