Rowan that is exactly how I feel! I came across this post while researching some info for a family member. The more I read, the more I personally resonate with so much of what is being said here. As with you Rowan – I have struggled with the downward spiral of feeling “lazy” and incompetent. I believe ADD is a medical condition – just not one I ever considered I may have. I always just thought I was lazy, unmotivated or depressed. I think I need to look into this more!
