    Confession time: I kinda cheated my way through 11th and 12th grade. It got so boring I couldn't survive without cheating. I never did bad on the tests, so do I regret it? I'm not sure.

    I struggled throughout all of school until I finally did independent study for Junior and Senior year. I’ve been in college for 7 years now, and still going, but boy is it difficult. i’m not on meds now but was in elementary and middle school. So maybe that has something to do with it.

    I was a high school sterling scholar 3.2 GPA and wasn't diagnosed until later in life. I was shocked to learn that others didn't live with the same amount of turmoil inside as I did. Taking adderall opened my eyes to the calm that I never had. I'd been ignorant of the struggle I was going through so I pushed and pushed and was motivated to get good grades because it was "cool" and my boyfriend was the dreamboat straight A student. If I'd been aware that I had a learning disability I would have probably done worse.

      It was excruciating to get through my studies in high school. There was a lot of tears and shame. It was kind of miserable.

        But I hid it so well by being funny. And then I got through a college and a second bachelor's online.... Because I thought that was the only way to make it in this life. Apparently there is something called starting your own business and being N entrepreneur which suits me much better.
