Having ADHD is like trying to climb to the top of a mountain with a backpack full of rocks. You are ready to make the climb, but a little anxious because you've been told that you just aren't cut out for mountain climbing, that maybe you shouldn't even bother. But you know you can do it. And then you realize there are people that are just zipping up to the top of that mountain ahead of you. You tell yourself, "But I did all my prep work! I am smart! So why can't I move as fast as everyone else?" Then you find ways to get some of those rocks out of your backpack. Learning coping mechanisms takes out some of the rocks. You still have some rocks left in the backpack, but you find you can scale that mountain much easier now. You aren't giving up, you aren't having to stop for hours to convince yourself into getting moving again. And then you make it to the top of the mountain.

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder is a problem with inattentiveness, over-activity, impulsivity, or a combination, but remember symptoms of ADHD can often be mimicked by other disorders.
