I couldn’t agree more, Candace. At age 54, I am often told I could not possibly be “that old”. I tell them I attribute it to the “deer in the headlights” expression that’s always on my face! I truly matured later because of my ADHD. And yes, my 18 year old son got his ADHD (and possibly Autism traits) honestly…from me and/or my side of the family. I like the idea of a lighter case load, I am sure that will be best for our son in college too. Thank you.
