Labled Child


I am Maggie.
I am 19 years old.
I love the colour orange.
I am a documentor.
and
I have ADHD, SPD, Raynaud's, and a few other things that I don't want to list.

I was diagnosed a bit later in life. Most children with ADHD, these days, get the lable in elementary school. I was not diagnosed in junior high, but even before then, my teachers were working with my parents to help me through.

This blog will be a recording of my memories and moments with these, um, condtitions. I'm not sure what to call them.

I will write about the moments I found out and how I felt then, and about struggles I still have today as I work my way through community college.

I am hoping that this can be something of a resource to parents with children like me. I am blessed to not have a serious case of anything, but there is no denying its effect upon my life. Maybe it will give some parents a bit of insight if their kids aren't able to fully express what they're going through. I also have yet to find another person, my age, on the internet who is going through the same things -- even though I know there must be hundreds out there.

These lables do not define me, but they have given me, and my parents, one crazy adventure as I've grown up - and I know I still have a lot of growing to do.
