ADHD and the Creative Mind

Lisa Ling

“I have always had a bit of a difficult time focusing on things that aren’t interesting to me…”  Lisa Ling added, “I get really, really anxious before taking any kind of test or having any kind of evaluation. As a journalist, when I’m immersed in a story, then I feel like I can laser-focus.  “But if I’m not working, my mind goes in every direction but where it’s supposed to go. I’ve been like that since I was a kid.”
