  •  Wow (4+ / 0-)

    That is me exactly

    I quit Flute, guitar, wrestling, football.

    Found theatre in High School.  Loved History and English, got D's and F's in math and science. Spent a semester in Junior College, got an A in my History class and failed everything else.  Spent 4 years in the military and was promoted ahead of my peers.  Got out and finished my degree.  Since I was majoring and studying something I love, Political Science, I was invited to join the honors fraternity in college.

    Started seeing psychiatrist in 2012, who prescribed me Adderall.  I know drugs have a negative reputation, but this one has been a lifesaver.  My reviews have drastically improved at work, and I am being considered for a six figure position.  

    I have accomplished all of this in a year and a half.  Had I had a support network in HS, I could have gone to an Ivy League school.
