My personal struggle living with ADD
By s1mplysmile on January 20, 2014
Fast forward to 2011 and I was graduating with my bachelor of science degree. Not only that, but I was graduating with highest honors. I ended up graduating with a 3.98 gpa. My grades even earned me membership in Sigma Zeta (a National Science and Math Honor Society) as well as Kappa Gamma Pi (a National Graduate Honor Society). I accomplished all of this without my medications. And now, fast forward to 2014 and I have not only completed a clinical dietetic internship but have become a Registered Dietitian.
Living with ADD is hard. It’s something I will always have to deal with. Some days are better than others. Some days I am on the ball and completely focused and others my mind is out in outer space. It’s a daily struggle but it’s something I’ve learned to accept. It’s a part of who I am. I had to work hard for my accomplishments but I am proud of that fact because I know just how hard I worked. If anything, I’ve also learned what I am capable of. I have learned that I am much stronger than I ever gave myself credit for. I learned that I can and will accomplish anything I put my mind to. ADD is not a weakness. It is a strength.
