I m a little hesitant to ask this question, but does anyone have trouble on the road? I m 23 years old and I still haven t got my driver s license yet. In fact, today was my third road test, and I failed to notice this taxi behind me honking at me from the lane I was about to enter. I had checked both my rear-view mirrors and was about to change lanes, when the taxi started honking and I (*insert frustrated growl here*) just picked up speed to go ahead of him. I still can t believe my reaction. Do any of you have similar problems on the road? Do you feel like you can t respond fast enough, or when you do you do the complete opposite of what you should have done?
I m not sure if it s an A.D.D problem or not, so I never discuss such things with my family. Also, because my folks refuse to acknowledge my A.D.D. and tell me it s all a matter of focus. This really frustrates me because I m doing all I can: I meditate, I practice breathing exercises, I even take the recommended Omega-3 supplements and make sure my diet and nutrition have a minimal amount of gluten, fats and artificial colors. And I still find little to no progress. I m always speeding and making hasty decisions. I m always inattentive and don t notice the cars around me. Frankly, I m not sure I even know how to get focused. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks, everyone.
