lisa ling diagnosed add at age 40

Lisa Ling is all sorts of amazing!

She has a long, illustrious career in journalism, her own TV show on the OWN network called Our America With Lisa Ling, and a recent A.D.D. diagnosis.

Wait… what??

That's right! Lisa Ling was filming an episode of her show and the topic was Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) but she ended up being diagnosed with ADD while on the show!

She said:

"My head is kind of spinning. But I feel a little bit of relief because, for so long, I've been fighting it and I've been so frustrated with this inability to focus.

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."

That's so crazy she had no idea!!

An ADD diagnosis at age 40 is pretty uncommon. But at least now Lisa knows and she's said the knowledge has given her "clarity." That's great!

Check out the video (below) to learn a little more about Lisa's new situation.
