One of the major causes of ADD is hereditary. Do either you or Damien’s dad have it as well?
Well Spear… I was never diagnosed, but I do believe I have ADD, a relatively “mild” case if there is such a thing. I taught myself coping mechanisms as I got older, especially after Damien was born. I do have some sensory issues in that I cannot block out ambient noise- I hear everything all the time, and I am easily distracted, but I need to do several things at once to be able to focus on one of them. I need to have the TV on whilst I blog or bake- its my “white noise”…
I believe Damien’s father does indeed have ADHD, but I don’t know if he was diagnosed.
My father also has ADHD, and I believe my sisters also have it… My poor knucklehead didn’t stand a chance!!
