OK, so my son is recently diagnosed as ADHD/ODD. As the psychologist is explaining how genetics can be a big factor, and how parents sometimes realize they suffer from the same disorders after having thier child diagnosed, he is looking at me and giving a polite snicker, pointing out some of my mannerisms and habits (coping mechanisms?). Hyperactivity is definately not a problem with me, but I have always had problems with memory, and attention span, detail. It just makes me wonder. There are other things, but I'd like to keep them a secret for now - we could run out of acronyms. Anyone out there that can share a first hand description of what it is like to have ADD? Thanks.
