I know what Ray means. I have ADD (attention deficit disorder), and have always had it. It made school hell. If Ray has it, in addition to everything else that’s plaguing him, maybe there’s some hope for him at the college level. (College less of a hell than grades 1-12, and graduate level education was also less of a hell.) With help, a student can cope with it. The rest of his “stuff”? The PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder)? I can’t say.
