Worst enemies are the people who know how to push all of your buttons and get under your skin. They enjoy making you angry and causing you pain. The thing that comes between best friends and worst enemies is a thin line. It doesn’t take much for a disagreement to turn into a full-blown fight.

The Confession.

“I want to be very clear on this, point. I do not blame my parents for this. Your child is crying all the time, clearly something is wrong, the doctor prescribe a drug, he is not the only doctor who thinks it is a good idea, you give the drug to the child, the child, the child stops crying. It was a different time.”

Overall, I thought this was a very honest and insightful book. Perry’s writing is engaging and humorous, and he provides a unique perspective on what it’s like to live with ADD.
