    A shame that it is only for undergraduate students. I’m back in the classroom after 21 years pursuing an MS degree.


    what about graduate students in the medical or pharmacy school. ADHD has been an everyday struggle to control in such a competitive environment. From struggling to pass highschool, jr college, and a university college as a result of growing up without helath insurance and a late diagnosis at 21years old, I along with two friends in professioal graduate school could us the help. Grad school is expensive, and we both uae shire products


    I have had ADD since the first grade. I have been taking Vyvanse for a number of years and it has worked great for me. I am applying to undergrad school for the fall and the scholarship would help my family.

Bonnie, there are no words to express how deeply I’ve been affected by your blog! I’ve only read a few things, but they have created such a complete mind shift that the tears shed have washed away my struggles forever!

For the first time in my life I feel understood and hopeful that I can put some tools and systems in place to help me overcome!”
