Speed Is Relative … Even Mine

I don't feel like I've lived that long, though. I mean, come on, 55 years? It seems like just yesterday I was wondering what to be when I grew up.

The ADHD Road Is Paved

Nicely paved ...

What? Huh? What's that supposed to mean? Most roads are paved, but what is the ADHD road?
The ADHD road is the road of life for a person with ADHD. We each have our own road to travel in life. All of us do, ADHDers and neuro-typicals alike.
Much of the scenery is similar, though point of view and distance...
