Eye opening!! I did not realize I had ADD until I was almost 80 y/o. I’ve have always needed to pass cars when driving and get plenty of inner road rage. I’ve left grocery shopping carts ’cause I could not stand to wait any longer. I never realized it was ADD. Right now I’m in a retirement community and trying to learn a game called rummy cube.
I’m very slow at playing right now. I’ve gotten so inpatient that I decided that I’d better just stop trying to learn the game. I always wondered why I Hated to play board games as a child. A lot of my behavior and emotions that I had growing up are now making sense to me.

I am looking for some professional help but can’t seem to find it; but I will keep trying. I don’t know how to change my brain!!
