“I did better at school when I was on it, but it made me a zombie. You become obsessive. Dexedrine, Adderall — it’s like any other drug. It’s like coke or crystal meth. The more you do, the less it works”
But he didn’t stop there, he went on to say:

Every fan of Will i Am and just about everyone one who follows the latest news on ADHD knows by now that Will i Am has revealed that he has ADHD. I found out from an article published on the online UK Mirror.

How many times have you thought to yourself “I wish I could slow down, relax and take in this moment”?
Have you ever had a truly spectacular day you wish would last forever?
