I am a freshman in high school, I have ADHD, bipolar, depression, and compulsive control disorder. My mental state interfere with my social and mental state, not to mention my school work. I have been in the gifted program since I was in the second grade. I always knew i was different, but just because i am smart it was still really hard to focus and control myself. People are always telling me that I can't do certian things, just because i have disabilitie. I show people that just because I have different problems than normal teenagers doesn't mean i can't do the same things. I am an out cast but i prove to people that just because I'm different doesn't mean anything. Just because you have something like LD, don't let it stop you from doing something you love. If you realy and truely want to go to collage, then go you may have to try harder than the other students but that's okay it just proves that it is something you want to do.
Empower yourself with positive thoughts on how to live successfully without thinking less of yourself. You can also set yourself little goals and determine to achieve them without difficulties or excuse. Think of yourself as any other college student and this will keep you going and purpose never to look on any shortcomings.
