First off, i just turned 24 this year, and I totally know how you feel. I was diagnosed with A.D.D. at the age of 16. Boy did things turn for the better after that. Yeah I don't want people to think I'm retarded or anything, but truth of the matter is, I've accomplished more than what is expected. I've attacked A.D.D. head on, figured out way's of helping myself. and I'm happily married to a woman that's task oriented, which totally compliments me. I'm a surfer, skateboarder, wakeboard, snowboarder and I love to play. I also work for a huge Engineering firm and I love it. I've already gotten a raise and a promotion to work closely on Bidding work, and proposal drawing. Not to bore you, but dude, if it's true, don't ever work at a place that is boring. That will totally take you back. Get into a place that has variety. And never look at A.D.D. as a flaw. A.D.D. is awesome and we are gifted people. Some of the most creative people I know are A.D.D. Don't let it get you down.
