Despite having ADHD, a learning disability, and a sleep disorder, I’ve maintained a healthy 15-year-long career as a professional web developer. Knock on wood.
In fact, I didn’t even know that I had ADHD or the learning disability until the age of 30. I sensed that something was different about me, and that I struggled in a way people didn’t. And I developed a lot of strategies for dealing with my differences – long before I knew what they were.
