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.
