My ADHD flew under the radar?until I had kids

I heard the refrains throughout my childhood: If you?d just try a little harder, you?d be first in the class. Why do you keep making careless mistakes" You have no common sense. Can?t you keep quiet" Stop daydreaming.

Finally, I collapsed in my psychiatrist?s office and cr...
