ADHD and College and Higher Education
diagnosed at 40 and want to go back to school but really scared!
So here’s my deal…Back when I was 19 I attempted to go to college but was not diagnosed and had some major attention and learning issues I am positive were due to ADHD. Now that I have been diagnosed and have my family, I want to go back to school and I’m afraid that because of my age and the ADHD I will just fail.
I am a positive person and I have let fear run my life for a long time but I really want to achieve something and have a career and live my life to the fullest, age and ADHD be damned!! If anyone has a similar situation or experience, please share. My major was music and I would love to work in the music therapy field possibly helping people with ADHD and addiction issues as I spent many years self medicating and not being properly diagnosed. I have been sober for 2 years and am ready to go! Just need some words of encouragement.
Thanks to you all! You are an inspiration to me…
