I have had adhd all fifty years of my life. I always knew I was somehow different from others, that things just never seemed easy for me and then at the same time certain things I was focused on would sometime amaze others. friendships were rare and hard to find. school , work, family , any social event was always a strain .I didn't find out about the adhd until I was forty and was. randomly tested along with others in a state run vocational rehab for those who had injured themselves on the job and had to switch occupations. it has been a chore.
