At an early age (5-10) my parents were told by school doctors/specialists that I demonstrated typical ADHD
symptoms. Throughout school, I was disruptive, inattentive, and generally off-task nearly all the time. Humility aside for a moment, I believe myself to be a very intellectual person. Despite my disruptive nature in school, I have always excelled in nearly every subject. Because of this, an alternative diagnosis for my disruptiveness was often cited as "boredom".
