I WILL BE STARTING COLLEGE, AGAIN , FOR THE THOUSANDTH TIME. I HAVE ATTENDED MANY DIFFERENT COLLEGES. I AM 24 YEARS OLD AND I AM ADHD. I HAVE BEEN PERSCRIBED ADDERALL 30MG THREE TIMES A DAY(FOR ADHD) , CELEXA 20MG ONCE A DAY(FOR DEPRESSION), TRAZODONE 150MG AT BEDTIME(SLEEPING MEDICATION).ANYWAY, I CAN'T SEEM TO KEEP UP WITH THE NOTES IN CLASS. I HAD A LOT OF SPECIAL HELP ALL THROUGH HIGH SCHOOL AND NURSING SCHOOL IS JUST A NIGHTMARE ! I NEED A "NOTE TAKER/PERSON" LIKE A TUTOR TO GO THROUGH THIS WITH ME .I HAVE DONE THE STUDY BUDDY, THE TAPE RECORDER(HORRIBLE IDEA BECAUSE I NEVER HAVE THE TIME TO L"RE- LISTEN" TO SEVEN HOURS OF TAPE!), TALKED TO MY TEACHERS , STUDIED NIGHT AND DAY. BASICALLY I AM DROWNING !!!! I NEED SOMEONE WHO IS EVEN PAID TO GET THROUGH THIS WITH ME. I AM NOT LAZY I AM JUST CAN'T KEEP UP WITH THE NOTES, HOMEWORK, SLEEP, EATING, A SHOWER, WASHING CLOTHES, AND LETTING(BECAUSE I AM FORCED TO....)MY APARTMENT GET SO MESSY ! I JUST DON'T HAVE TIME TO BREATHE ! IS THERE GOVERNMENT AGENCYS TO HELP ME? I WENT TO TALK TO SOMEONE(GOVERNMENT AGENCY) THAT IS SUPPOSED TO HELP ADHD BUT,I DID'NT QUALIFY FOR AID BECAUSE MY BODY PARTS ARE'NT MISSING, OR SOMETHING SO SEVERE(TO GO ALONG WITH ADHD) THAT I COULD'NT RECIEVE HELP. ALSO, THEY WANTED TO KNOW ALL SORTS OF PRIVATE INFORMATION ABOUT MY DEPRESSION AND IT'S NOT THAT IT'S SO HORRIBLE ,BUT IT IS ALSO NOT SOMETHING I AM WILLING TO ADVERTISE. I LIVE IN A SMALL TOWN ! SO, BACK TO THE TOPIC. HOW CAN I GET HELP IN COLLEGE? DOES ANYONE ELSE HAVE THESE PROBLEMS? ARE THERE PEOPLE THAT YOU CAN HIRE TO TAKE NOTES , IF SO PLEASE LET ME KNOW BECAUSE MY PARENTS WILL KILL ME IF I FAIL COLLEGE AGAIN! MONEY AT THIS POINT IS NO OBJECT !!!!! THANK YOU FOR READING MY DESPRITE PLEA !!!!!!!!!
