I am a doc of 37 yrs experience, past 11 yrs doing just ADHD work. I was diagnosed with ADHD about 14 yrs ago, surprised at first (“how does anyone with ADHD get through med school?” “that was your hyperfocus”. yup, medicine is my passion.
What would I want people to know about ADHD? Intelligence or life accomplishments have nothing to do with ADHD – doctors, professors, executives in businesses – usually their area of expertise is something they passionate about, that’s easy for ADHDers to do. They probably had to study longer than others, or took longer to get the degree.
