I am middle aged. I have done a lot of reading in my life but it's always been a challenge. I would like to consume more reading material. I might have to go back to college to get a second degree for a career change. I have been out of work or years. What can I do to sit down for long periods of time and read? When I do finally focus I end up falling asleep.

Interesting question Intracellular. I grew up believing we were put on this earth for a purpose. But I am not so sure anymore. Or, I am here fulfilling my purpose but have it's not what my big ego thinks it should be. I am a happy dad. But I also want to be a famous musician. I doubt that will happen. But being a loving dad is more important.

This ADD runs in my family. My father had it, but he just died. My elder brother dropped out of high school in 9th grade because everyone thought he was the dumbest kid on the planet. My son has it too and has been on vyvanse and adderall. I was sick lately and needed some ginger which I learned to love as a child, but this is the crystalized ginger (like candy and awfully hot). I too stared out the window, could never pay attention or anything in school, but when my mother introduced me to crystalized ginger, I became an A+ student. I have one year of college and married in 1975 and had to give back 2 full-ride scholarships. I am an A+ student because I learned to love crystalized ginger. Give it a try. Better than caffeine anyday!
