    This is one of the most compelling articles I’ve read. It really addresses ME. All through my school years I had to work so hard to meet the goals I had for myself. Yes, I was in the top eighth out of 800 students when I graduated H.S. but I worked extremely hard at it. It wasn’t until I was about 38 yrs, of age thatt I was diagnosed with depression, extreme anxiety,and ADD. I continued with life and at 49 yrs. old I finally fulfilled my life dream of higher education – college. (Even though I had a counselor in H.S. tell me that I wasn’t college material). As usual my ADD, depression controlled with medication and anxiety made school very difficult. Thank you so much for this link. I look forward to following it. Thanks again my dear friend.

      It’s never too late to learn! Too bad more people don’t take time to educate themselves…it would make life so much easier for so many people. I know you did well in high school…you also did well socializing (with me! and others). Remember the State Typing & Business Competitions and the Senior Cup Award?LOL It’s those skills that help me with this website. No one can take education or experience out of a person…even with a brain injury! You are very welcome my dear friend!
