Richard is a Program Manager living with ADD and depression. In this episode, Richard walks us through half a lifetime with undiagnosed ADD at work. His journey to diagnosis starts out as the smart kid who could finish his homework in five minutes and ends as an adult taking on too much responsibility to get the rush of feeling valued. After “acing” the lab test for ADD, Richard is on a different journey. The journey to getting OK with being good enough.
