The Complexity and Superiority of Attention Deficit Disorder
At a desk, you sit as your skin quivers each time the clock “ticks.” The sound of the clock creates restlessness in your body as you become physically hypersensitive.
Your vision tunnels as you hyper-focus on the minute hand; time slows down — A raindrop smashes into the window next to you, causing your vision to constrict and time to slow down. You can smell the damp maple walls that separate you from the trickling rain outside as soon as your senses begin to ripple into your consciousness.
Tick Tick Tick…
Nature’s exquisite harmony sets your senses aglow. Your senses adrift in a state of trance. It is possible to hear each droplet as it slams into a variety of surfaces. Each surface is like a different instrument in a band.

Contrary to popular belief, an individual’s greatest perceived weakness may actually be their greatest asset. A child’s greatest so-called flaw could also be his or her greatest strength, in spite of society’s negative perception of ADHD in children. Furthermore, this “flaw” can be turned into a valuable asset if used properly. Even so, in order to achieve this, society must better understand what ADHD is, its positive aspects…
