      Don...as usual you hit the nail on the head. Especially your last sentence which encapsulates the profound tragedy that ADD visits upon us. I have always felt like my self-esteem was circling the drain and just a nanometer from dropping in. I was lucky enough to have a very supportive family who kept me from making any really self-destructive missteps...but it could have happened and thinking back, it scares the living hell out of me.
