Re: Writing with ADHD

I've been on meds for 5 days now and I've revised an additional 3 pages. While that doesn't sound all that impressive, I'm pleased.

Well, the rest of my team played slow pitch while I either sat on the sun warped bench or stood in right field attempting to pick splinters from t...
