What will life be like with treated ADHD? Will I finally earn a degree? Will I be happy? Not having a degree has made me feel horrible about myself for years. I went to a high school for academically gifted teens, but I was a solid C student. I had classes in which I excelled, and typical of ADHD those were in subjects I found fascinating. I then went on to a state college with open admission and was given an academic suspension twice. I didn't go back after the second failure. I skipped my one, and so far only, high school reunion last year out of embarrassment. My former classmates are professors, writers, CEOs, successful artists, doctors, and state senators. I'm an underpaid administrative assistant. It sucks because I would have liked to have seen them all. I can only hope that this medication and therapy will help me realize my potential, and that I'll be happy to attend the next reunion.
