Hyper active, spaz, the hummingbird, and my favorite, my mothers chandelier swinger.I was diagnosed when I was in kindergarten or first grade. I didn’t speak to anyone except my older sister until the age of two. I am a self-taught reader at the age of four. Nobody really told me what that “really meant”, to be hyper active. I did run everywhere I went. Did not stay with my mother in the grocery store. They told me that I had a difficulty with sitting still, looking at the teacher during class, and talking too much. Has an adult,I found that it is a lot more than what I was told. I didn’t outgrow it and had a lot of problems adjusting in my early 20s. I am glad this post was made. Thank you for helping expose the many of us, the underserved.
