i'd kind of a magazine have a book going on in my job and all that really is

3:08

pretty incredible considering i was the same guy and we couldn't even

3:11

for his long enough to read a paragraph so of is quite a transformation of

3:15

there's a lot other people out there and people think that it's just for kids in

3:19

there you go out of the truth of it is the symptoms never really go away and as

3:22

an adult you really need like you know you need treatment as long-lasting and

3:26

so it's really great ratings like violence after the really make a

3:29

difference in people's lives just i really would be the person i am today if

3:48

i think there are symptoms in my opinion uh... i think you know how we know

3:58

everybody's different but there are difference between eighteen eighty h d

4:02

would have liked to have any disorder

4:03

you can cancel this by the behavior pattern

4:06

is is i would say don't wait too late to have the kind of checked out because

4:13

you know you guys are web based lead to real materials dry school and

4:17

ineffective migrate so the opting to go even better schools was even an option

4:21

because because the struggle that winter early on because back then they didn't

4:26

have a treatment within a big deal

4:28

4:32

are out there and that you have a suspicion they might have ended
