whats up, I'm Dave. I was officially diagnosed ADHD[Combined Type], at age 4, I believe. Doctor's told my mom I'd grow out of it. Well ,that never happened. Instead it manifested into, 'Severe Mood Disorder' , and 'Major Depressive Disorder with ADHD [combined type]. Also experience anxiety too. Other than that I function pretty well for the most part. I'm a certified firefighter, I have been studying abnormal psychology (mental disorders), and drug addictions for about 3-4 years with a lot of avid reading, and research. I plan on going to college, and plan on doing clinical work -dave
I'm plagued by an illness that has no cure, only a temporary solution. I've been diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyper Activity Disorder, Anxiety, Mood Disorder, and Major Depressive Disorder. For the most part I function rather well but still feel the mental pain and anguish, and frustration. But that hasn't stopped me from becoming a certified firefighter, winning the "Captain's Award", which is presented to the member who most demonstrated skillful and enthusiastic participation and leadership in fire fighting and fire groud operations, in company and department training drills, standby duty, and mutual aid calls. Went through intense elite fire fighting training and passed. I almost dropped out. It was a 152 hour program. First in my town to go through it.
