I have Attention Deficit Disorder. I've had it my whole life, and I've finally come to realize that it may be the reason why I'm struggling so much in my senior year of college. I've been on medications for ADD for over a decade, but I feel like it's not enough anymore, even with the heavy dosage I'm taking. I've heard you can get a personal coach or therapist who teaches you how to manage your ADD without medications. Is that true or is it a scam? Please help me out, Flood.
