Hi my name is Amanda im 21. in elementary school i was diagnosed with reading difficulties, went to those special reading classes, my desk was always a mess and i would lose homework almost every day, i dont know how i passed each grade but i squeezed by.. in high school same thing although now my parents thought i was slipping up because my test scores were very low even tho i would study for hours and hours...was diagnosed with severe test anxiety by school pysch...was covered under the 504 plan for test accommodations where i got the test read to me so i could read and hear the test.. it helped soooo much!! with focusing on tests!!! anyways parents were happy and grades got better so didnt really worry about it..went to college still got testing accommodations throughout college recently graduated..i am currently studying for my state licensing exam to become a physical therapist assistant and needed to see a clinical psych. in order to get test accommodations went through all of that and got results back last thursday from pysch. He stated that i have classic ADHD symptoms and was shocked that this wasn't found way back when with the reading and focusing difficulties.. he wasn't surprised when i told him my struggles through school. i think he was just very shocked that no one picked up on the signs. So anyway, tomorrow i start on dextroamp-amphet. meds to help with focusing, being able to sit still, help organize so i dont lose things so much...i kindof excited in a way.. i hope this medication will help some..anyways just wanted to say hi to everyone and introduce myself. thanks for reading. cheers, Amanda

She is in excellent shape, really exercises a lot, and eats well... not at all overweight. Anyone else have any issues with this? I did find that it can go with PKD. She was reading that there are...
