Isn't it interesting how diagnoses can affect us?

That was part of @brandonwilson's comments on my post from yesterday. I was thinking about that today. There aren't too many diagnosis of diseases like ADHD or dyslexia where I grew up but I wonder, would a diagnosis as a kid,have affected my confidence?

I was a quiet kid growing up. I sat in the corner and preferred to be alone. My siblings were always running around with energy to spare.
I wanted to be a part of none of that madness. I would cry if they came too close to me or my imaginary kitchen. 

I was also bad at sports. When me and my siblings got tennis lessons, I would keep missing the ball. When learning something new, I tend to asked many  questions that no one was curious about. The questions got worse with jokes. 

I am still not certain why I do what I do. But I always felt different. Fortunately, I was always good at school and good with people so my parents never had me checked for anything.
But that depth perception diagnosis seemed to have boosted my confidence because it arrived after I was an adult.

      @abrahamKim - that boo hurt like a knife to the heart. I am particularly sensitive to it from Sir Abe who I know boo-s nobody else.

      I had a rough day yesterday and I wrote a post cussing some people out. It was a private therapy session.

    @keni I was also quiet, bad at sports, and good in school. So we have that in common :) I think the marshmallow experiment is informative. Some kids can delay gratification and some can't, and there is a correlation to behavior as adults. I think a similar construct might apply to being diagnosed with some condition. Some kids will be defined by it and limited and others will get strength from it and not let it hold them back.
