|What mental disorder do you have?|
I was actually diagnosed with ADD when I was in college. I had applied for an undergraduate teaching assistant position at the university's "Learning Skills Center" and during my interview the woman who ran the center (Dr. Ann Massey - I still look back and think of her as my mentor) asked a number of questions about my experiences in school before getting to college. At the end of the interview she told me that from my experiences it sounded as if I might have Attention Deficit Disorder. Now this was 1985 mind you, and ADD wasn't well known (and totally over-diagnosed) then. I certainly had never heard of it. I remember teachers telling my parents that I was hyperactive and day dreamed a lot (I always thought those two things were sort of contradictory, but apparently not). Dr. Massey told me that the LSC had the means of testing for ADD if I was interested. So I went through a battery of diagnostic tests and sure enough, I suffer from ADD. After all that, Dr. Massey informed me that it appeared as if I had developed sufficient coping mechanism on my own and didn't require any intervention. So in essence I got tested for nothing. On the other hand, I got the TA job, so I was happy.
