Writing space and ADHD:

I have had tons of things going on besides work. I am about to start school Tuesday, and I have been cleaning to get my new desk moved in too. I love it, and here is the new layout.
 
 
I also had to finally tell my supervisor and the people I work with the fact that I have ADHD. ADHD is attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. It means I am impulsive, and I have to have questions repeated because I do not pay attention when someone talks to me directly. I also make careless mistakes, and I was afraid to admit I had the disorder because I thought I would seem weak. I am not though, but I doubt you could tell I have it sometimes. I tried to take Ritalin and Adderall but they gave me headaches, made me lose my appetites, and I stayed up until 3 in the morning. The disorder is non curable, and I do not think I want it cured since it is part of who I am. Not too many people understand how hard it is to have it in the first place.
 
On top of all that I even have dyslexia in Math which makes me reverse numbers, and it is considered a learning disability. I have issues with that at work since I accidentally reverse numbers. I want to succeed in life to show people like me that you can be successful regardless of the mental disorder you have.
 
Do you know anyone else that experiences a disorder, or do you have one? Do you think people get treated differently because of it?
 
Until next time,

  1. My brother has dyslexia, and he was treated as if he was an idiot for most of his schooling. He's actually highly intelligent. :-/
