Hey, man.

You posted this almost one year ago. To put it bluntly, you alive?

I’m twenty years old, recently diagnosed with ADD. I’m now realizing how … whole life encompassing it is. And now reading this, it’s … partly refreshing from the whole “ADD people can be just like everyone else!!” “He’s strategies!!”, and partly terrifying to see what the path twenty years ahead of me looks like.

I hope you’re alive, because honestly it’d give me a little something to not … fall down the rabbit hole. I’m hitting the point where between ADD, anxiety, depression, now being medically discharged from the army for those things… I searched “ADD is ruining my life” (yes, a direct quote of my search) for a reason.

At the very least, I hope you’re alive. Please.
