But wait, there's more. Will credits his ADD for his songwriting career:
"A doctor diagnosed me as having [attention deficit disorder] and suggestedIf you do the math in the story about Will, you'll see that he had a successful career as an attorney, made partner at his firm, and then was diagnosed with ADD. I think that's like a lot of us ADDers who were diagnosed as adults. We created our lives, only to discover that there's a name for why we function the way that we do. And medication can give us that ability to focus on the talents and strengths that may have been tangled up all of these years.
I try Ritalin. In my mind it unleashed the creative gene again, and it was like
the light was back on. And I said, Dammit, do something with it this time."
I can't wait until May 20th to see if the Battle of the Davids features Will's song!
