Back to my Story

As a child, I had trouble paying attention in class. I recall in the 4th grade when I was 10 years old. The material that the teacher explained overwhelmed me. She called on me but I couldn't pay attention because it was too much to bear. I daydreamed a lot. By the time I finished daydreaming, my mind returned to reality. The teacher finished explaining the class lesson. I imagined myself doing better if I could pay attention better. Those of you in my position may have understood.



Later in my late 40's my paternal aunt mentioned to me that I have a family history of ADD. I had not seen her in over 30 years. Another case, ADHD is when hyperactivity is often involved. I get excited when speaking. I'm not sure if it's a personality thing or part of the symptoms.



Low self-esteem is involved. As a child, I felt stupid. I could never get good grades as the smarter kids did. They always answered correctly.



When I was 10 years old, I envied a new girl in my 4th-grade class to the point where I despised her. She got better grades than me no matter how hard I tried. I thought her being left-handed had something to do with it. She wrote so well as a 10-year-old. Her cursive handwriting curved towards the right of the page. I, a right-hander, mimicked her writing style. I could do good as her, so I thought. It wasn't the case.



I wish that technology existed back then like today. We have smartphones with search options on a page. I can find a search term and highlight it. I am a deep reader, not one who reads from left to right. The anticipation of reading left to right alone is aggravating and boring. At least to me, it is. I am anxious to know what the article is about and what is to come. Others may have this problem.



Of course, back then were manual fluorescent highlighters. All I had to do was highlight the word I wanted on a physical page. But after I highlighted the first word I wanted, I then wanted to erase the former word and highlight a new one. These were the days before the digital age, unlike today. We can add and erase in the drop of a hat many words and not waste paper in the process!



This is to help people like me understand. I hope this makes sense end my love goes out to all who strive and do our best in life as best as we can.



I don't want to go too far into depth about ADD. I will have to save the subject for another article to read. I want to keep my focus on the table of contents. For those who had trouble like me, it's easier to focus on little bits and pieces of information. Today I'm a better person with the medical help of medication and therapy. It helps ease my mind and I can focus better. Little did I know back then that ADD even existed back then when no one knew what it was back in the late 1970s/early 1980s. Not even in school.
