I totally agree with everything everyone has said on this topic. Having a Ferrari brain with bicycle brakes can be very difficult. Things have been so much better however since I was diagnosed with ADHD and started medication. I grew up feeling that I was full of talent and great invention ideas, but I could never seem to get started on any real path to Realizing my potential. In fact that word “potential” is like a four letter word to me. That’s all I ever seem to hear from people. She has so much potential! But I could rarely get organized enough to complete any invention, or story, or song, or movie idea, or painting, that I ever started. Or if I did complete it, I could never get the courage to take the next step and try to Really do anything to put it out in the world. It was like ADHD was my superpower, and my curse all at the same time!
