As the title states, I have ADHD. Now, this is not a debate. I’m not here to ask your opinion on whether or not ADHD is real or not. In fact, I’ll share a little from an expert on the matter. I’ll quote Dr. Edward M. Hallowell, author of Delivered from Distraction, which I am currently reading; “ADD is not a religious principle; it is a medical diagnosis derived from such solid evidence as genetic studies, brain scans, and worldwide epidemiological surveys.”
Too many days have been spent under the veil.
Today, I rose from my sleep and found myself blind to the world.
I stumbled, cried, and prayed for my eyesight back
I felt around but nothing could be found
Not a door, a window, or the smallest hope for light
“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.” ~ Aristotle
Here’s is the prologue of my novel The Eighth Son: Awakening. Forgive the grammar. I’m a pretty good storyteller, but have no sense of punctuation. Well, anyhow, enjoy.
One thing you will notice from the get go is that I have no sense of punctuation, which is kind of odd for someone with a college degree. I’m not sure if that speaks more about the horrible education system of this country or more about my ability to fake till’ I make it. Well it seems like I faked it all the way through High School and College graduation. If I’m going to be honest though, I don’t really think I ever made it.
