Astounding ADD Discovery!! - Letter to Doctor
I have been going through troubled times. My mind is constantly thinking of changing my job. Since I moved I have been applying to various job postings and no success. I was getting very discouraged and stopped applying.
I would look at the postings and tell myself, do I really want to do the same job I am doing now? NO, I want a better job that pays more. So, what is it I want to do?
Then I would think if I want a better job I might have to go to school. But I don't have the energy to go to school after work and I can't go full time because I need an income.
I am bored with my life and don't know what to do next. Meanwhile, the thoughts don't stop and I have no gumption to do anything to change. My body feels restless and my head is heavy and foggy and constantly busy..noisy. But, no action on my part.
I decided to go see a counsellor/life coach and see if this could help me. Maybe, guide me in the right direction, as to what type of job I can consider, with my experience.
Or something. That's when I met John.
When I walked into his office he asked me to tell him why I was there. After I spoke for awhile he said, he wanted me to fill out a questionnaire for him. So I did.
After he looked at it, he started to explain how some people have very low electricity/energy in their body that doesn't allow them to achieve their potential. He called it ADD. I was blown away!
I couldn't believe that no one realized this earlier on in my life. During my school life especially. I hated school, I thought I wasn't very intelligent because I couldn't understand what the teacher was talking about or retain it. It was difficult to listen and concentrate. I was bored most of the time. Teachers would always say, she is too shy, very quiet, doesn't participate, needs to try harder, needs to be more attentive.....
All these years I thought something was wrong with me. Why am I so unhappy, bored, without any desire or interests? Everyone else seemed to be enjoying life, making friends, doing things together, but not me. Doctors thought I was depressed, so I tried all types of medication, went through therapy, group therapy, nothing seemed to help. I was still the same.
So Dr. ......., here I am at the age of 54 feeling discouraged that half my life has passed me by. I would like to have the hope that this ADD medication that John is speaking about can help me. I need to try this and if it doesn't help, fine, it is what it is. But if it does, who knows I may actually like myself and begin to live instead of just existing.
I really need to try this!!
