ADD may or may not exist. It may even just be a different personality type. Who knows.

But, what I DO know is that it is NOT comparable to waking up one day being paralyzed and unable to walk. Oh no, not at all.

I am a brain tumor patient and know exactly what it's like to wake up partially paralyzed one day and unable to walk.

The last thing I cared about was impressing people that I couldn't walk and making sure they believed me!

Oh, it's definitely not the same thing at all!

First, thank you for reading! Second, Thank your sharing your concern. I truly appreciate having the opportunity to respond.

Please accept my apologies for any lack of clarity in my writing that contributed to this misunderstand. I did not intend to imply that having ADD was like being paralyzed in ANY way. In contex, I was explaining that ADD is inherently INCONSISTENT - one day you can, next day you can, then you can't. I was only trying to use an analogy to explain why it is so frustrating. You never know whether you are going to be "on" or "off" and there is a 50/50 chance. For most people, they are only off maybe 80/20 or 90/10. It's the "magnitude" of the problem that causes the serious disruption to your life.
