    Hi there!

    So do you have a disability and are worried how it may affect going to school?

    I have anxiety and was recently diagnosed with ADD. (In a way not the typical ADD, I am a productive ADDer hehe). I was diagnosed right in the middle of this semester, my sophomore year. I never really thought I had anything I would consider a "disability", but the schools are very helpful. My school has an accessibility office. With a doctor filling out a paper verifying a disability they offer many services. My school offers testing in a quiet room in their center, extended test time, changed test start times for extra study time when classes are close to eachother, special parking, note takers, and a whole slew of other aides. I get to test in the center because with my ADD noises in the room distract me so dang much I want to go smack peoples tapping hands haha.

    It is hard at times because I know I should be doing my studying... but i get so distracted and then I get frustrated with my self.

    Hope it helps!
