I’m so proud of my step-daughter, she is one amazing kid! You see, she also has ADHD like me; the difference is, is that she has been on medication to control her ADHD symptoms since she was about 7 years old. Thankfully. She is only 13 now and she has such an emotional grasp on her strengths and weaknesses. I am so happy to see that, even though Lily has been through some rough times in her young life, she perseveres. Smiling, she doesn’t let things get her down.
I wasn’t diagnosed or medicated until I was 27 years old, and by that time, I had totally made a mess of my life. I only wonder how my life could have been had I been medicated young. I am excited to see Lily grow and avoid all the invisible vectors of ADHD that won’t pull her away from her focus.
