Adult ADD...WHY NOW??? Why Me?

I know now that I have had this for years? I made it through school with lots of visits to the principals office "discuss my lack of performance" and extra work and teachers that cared about me and all of us as students. I was never diagnosed but now I know I have it and I need something to help me out.

Decided to write a book...well we will see how I do it

For the last several months I have been seriously considering writing a book from the perspective of a college football player who finally had to realize that life was about to jump up and smack him in the jaw. That person was ME! From 1989 - 1994 I lived the dream. I tell you what I had all I needed and then some. I had school paid for, tutors (if I wanted them), girls, football, extra credit for no reason other than being a football player, did I mention girls, etc... You name it and it was mine for the taking during that time frame and I SCREWED IT UP!

But that is not the whole story. Now that I have had several years to reflect on things it isn't just that. Since 1995 I have gone to as many UAB games each year that I could as an alumni/former player. One thing has always been felt by me as lacking was direction and leadership from the administration as a whole. This program could be so much better but has been extremely lackluster in performance. I mean when I was there we had 4 winning seasons in the first four years. They have had THREE since 1995!!!

So I hope that I am able to get it all done and work on it the way that I want to...who knows if I am a decent writer or not or even if I know what in the heck I am talking about but I intend to do my best.
