I moved to a foreign country because I felt like a foreigner in my home country (the US). I honestly thought it might help. I thought being an actual foreigner would protect me from the feelings of being different because I’d finally have a good reason!… it did NOT work out. It only brought my feelings of isolation out more clearly. Wherever you go, there you are. But I’m glad I finally have some sort of explanation for why I feel this way (that is, IF I have ADD, I am still seeking diagnosis).
