History with the Condition

"I had insomnia from the age of 2. In high school, I learned seven instruments because I couldn't stay focused on one. In college, I changed my major 28 times.

"Finally, at age 23, I began seeing a therapist for some anxiety and mild depression issues and got a bonus diagnosis of ADHD after explaining my strange relationship with caffeine. Now that I know I have ADHD, I've been enjoying a year-long retrospective of my life. Now, I understand why and how my brain draws so many strange conclusions and calculations. It's been a blast."
