My child’s doctor told her that often ADD comes along with high intelligence. Congrats on making it through med school. Having watched my daughter struggle through, I know that it’s not only a matter of being able to learn SO MUCH STUFF and keeping all that information in your mind but that also there’s a lot of emotional struggle in sometimes abusive situations.

Whether you’re a chronic procrastinator or not, having ADD it’s a good idea to treat yourself as one. That means that you need to be rigorous in redirecting your procrastination EVERY time. And also be firm but kind with yourself. (The self-kindness is an important part.) If you got through med school, you can do this! We will help you tame that monkey.
