"I had insomnia from the age of 2. I learned seven instruments in high school because I couldn't focus on one. In college, I changed my major 28 times.
"Finally, at age 23, I began seeing a therapist for some anxiety and mild depression issues and got a bonus diagnosis of ADHD after explaining my strange relationship with caffeine.
"Now that I know I have ADHD, I've enjoyed reviewing my life pre-diagnosis. Now, I understand why and how my brain draws so many strange conclusions and calculations. It's been a blast."
