Things are still nowhere near perfect for those who are 2e/gifted but disabled, but they are a lot better than what was available for people my age. I may have AD(H)D traits but wouldn't claim to have fully diagnosable AD(H)D. My 'traits' are 1)difficulties with organising and planning 2)difficulty ...

I've read so many posts about people doing well until they reach college/uni. Then pure brain power isn't enough , and the bad habits they got away with come home to roost. I have no great achievements , not in the way that such things are usually judged. I do my best to be a good dad,granddad, and...

For whatever reason I get more upset over a lack of replies to forum posts I've made than posts on FB and X. It may be distorted thinking on my part, but the posts I'd most like replies to tend to be the ones that are virtually ignored. I do realise that a FB friend is, for the most part, very diffe...

^ I'm probably the most unpopular student to have gone to my public school in the 460 years of its existence. I was treated like I was an ugly freak. I had no idea how to socialise well. That situation hasn't changed much over the years. I've periodically tried to socialise more, as it's regarded as...

I've not come across many overachievers in the high IQ community. I've come across more than a few underachievers. It took me ages to find a good explanation for the gulf between my achievements and my cognitive ability.The simple answer? EF>IQ when it comes to school age academic achievement. I was...

and a false sense of how smart you are. Well that certainly put me in my place. If I had a strong sense of self it wouldn't matter, but because I don't the wide ranging views of how intelligent/smart I am aren't easy to cope with. Some see me as no more than a fool. Others see me as a person with '...

Very few replies :( Hopefully it's because hardly anyone on this forum has ADD. I'd rather that than it's because I'm disliked.

It's been suggested as a result of a thread I started on a FB high IQ group that I may have attention deficit disorder. The thing is I can focus intensely on things that interest me. That's made me believe that ADD wouldn't be something I have. Reasons for thinking I may have are centred round diffi...
