graduation day Posted October 3, 2007 Share Posted October 3, 2007 Hello everyone, I was just diagnosed with ADD yesterday and I feel like I graduated from something. I'm 25 and one of those overlooked daydreamers, and how I ever managed to finish school and get into university or anything for that matter is a complete mystery to me. This puts so many things in perspective. Finally I can stop beating myself up about all the things I'm not doing and start giving myself a big big pad on the shoulder and a "well done" to go with it for getting this far in spite of everything. So...I'm kinda new to all this, and then again not. I have been secretely stalking this forum for quite a while after randomly ending up here in one of those crazy surfing-the-internet-for-useles-info spells I get. I have the Google syndrome. I swear, Google was made for people like me, it's amazing, you just click and click and click and it feels like actually watching your own ramble except you're also getting some kind of input. Anyway, the point I'm trying to get to here is that I want to say a HUUUUGE thank you to everyone in this forum, because without you, I would've still been lying on the floor in the catastrophic mess which is my apartment, banging my head against the wall trying to stop my head from speaking to me (yea, I and my flat are still a big mess, but at least I've stopped the banging ) When I first came here, I was just really into reading what everyone had to say about anything, I was so amazed (still am) at how well-written, clever, humorous, sympathetic and compassionate all these entries of yours are. Also, there's a long history of mental illness in my family and I've found it a lot easier coping with it after finding this little treasure box. Then one day though, this specific forum really caught my attention (heh), it read:Could You Say That Again? I Was Listening to My Head. This really cracked the nut and here I am- KUDOS to whoever came up with that sentence! So again, THANK YOU all for helping me get my diagnosis, giving me a good read on all those nights I can't fall asleep, helping me get closer to my MI family members, thanks for being so mindblowingly AWESOME!
