Subject: Looking for help/advice
Hello all. I am very new to this website and my diagnosis of ADHD. I was diagnosed a month ago and put on the medication Vyvanse to help control my symptoms. I also am seeing a therapist to help sort through what is in my head. I will be going back to school at the end of the month and will have to either hold off on therapy during the semester or find someone at school to talk to. This will be my last year of my undergraduate studies.
My dream is to get my Masters and Doctorate degrees, however I am not sure if it is even possible anymore. My boyfriend (soon to be fiance) is the complete opposite of me and plays a similar instrument. He has a 3.9GPA and practices all of the time. We don't want to part once we graduate, but I can't imagine getting accepted into the same schools.
I am wondering if graduate schools will listen to my situation about the recent diagnosis and give me a chance to prove that I am worthy of their programs, or if my application will be laughed at and tossed to the side for "making excuses". I have never met another person in a similar situation, and feel a bit lost.
Any advice you could give would be so appreciated. I am so scared for my future and embarrassed by my situation.
