Read your book in two days. Was thoroughly engrossed at how you presented yourself and your learning stiles and temperament in general. All the while I kept saying that is me and that was me. You zeroed in on things that I have spent so many years trying to figure out. I am 58 and have been on Stratera for maybe 6 years. Does it help? At first I thought it did but I try to structure my days and routines by following some aides prescribed by ADD literature.
You can be sure, I will forward this to my friends who “are like me”.
Thank you for unlocking some key difference explaining who and what I am.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts Patty.
There were many times during the research process that I gained a lot of clarity about myself and felt like many of the ways I thought I was “wrong” were in fact just the way my brain is wired. And the more I understood about left and right brain- visual- thinking – I even started to like myself more. And I found out there are many ways we think – that have been discounted – but do in fact bring tremendous value to situations or learning.
As a person that can get distracted – I also felt better knowing it was part of being visual – and the ways I have learned to focus myself – are on target and do help me be more efficient and productive.
Thanks for sharing your thoughts and encouraging others to reconsider the way they see themselves.
