  1. I am so glad you got he help you needed. I have to confess, as a vetran of six failed medication trials, to being jealous of the benefit you and others get from medication.I must be one of the lucky 20% for whom the pills do nothing.
    It’s interesting to read about the whole “motorway of thoughts”. My mind does not race, it meanders. It wanders hither and yon. It drifts on the wind. But, as far as I can tell, I don’t think any faster than ordinary people. (I like to say “ordinary” rather than “normal”)

    Thanks for your article, and most of all, thanks for pulling yourself from the brink. The world is better for it.

  2. Thank you for sharing this. It’s I attempted suicide twice and was diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder for years before a neuropsychologist saw me and said I had one of the most severe cases of ADHD she had ever seen. 4 years later, I’m off public benefits and holding a full-time job. I’m sorry you were pushed to that point as well (being suicidal, not your diagnosis!). No one should feel like that’s the only way forwatd. As far as the hyperactivity aspect, consider this. You mentioned always finishing schoolwork first. Did it ever seem like other people were just…so…slow? I think maybe that’s a way hyperactivity manifests that people don’t consider.
