    My success story with ADHD has two parts:

    The first part is that after high school I never thought I’d be able to go to college, let alone be successful there. Well, I actually ended up going to a 4-year college (after a brief break and a short stint in community college). And I was able through hard work and a lot of support to thrive there; both academically and socially. I ended up graduating with a 3.44 GPA and with the distinction of Cum Laude.

    Now flash-forward to nearly a decade later and I’m finding some success at work. I’ve got a job I love and for the first time ever people are giving me a lot of professional praise. It’s the first job I’ve had where I’m being considered for promotions and being given the chance to train in other parts of the company. I feel accomplished and it makes me proud that they don’t even know about my ADHD and are still giving me praise.

    I took medication until I was 18 and then I stopped taking it all-together, and have been medication free since. My success comes as the result of a lot of hard work and having the right support system in place.
