W hat is it about A.D.D. that makes you think that one day it will all be gone, that someone will “save” you and the daily struggles will all fall away? Why all the fantasies where the heavens open up, the light shines on you and suddenly you are on the tarmac with Jen Lopez (<= substitute your favorite star/starlet here) with the paparazzi lights blinding you as you climb into your Lear jet and head off to a paradise of white sand and crystal clear blue water and thoughtless hours on the beach?
Maybe it’s because this fantasy is a hell of a lot better than the lives we normally lead.
But A.D.D.ers still cling to the fantasy. They don’t give up…even when they should.
