Oh, ADD and work a subject close to my heart!

I'm sorry to hear what you say about a previous bi-polar disorder and becoming a pilot. Is it true in all states? Can you contest the earlier diagnoses, or ask to be "re-tested"? Or prove yourself in some sort of "amateur" way? I hear pilots take provigel sometimes...and what of all those military pilots and others who are rumoured to take amphetamines?? Why ok for them to take psycho-active drugs? I sure hope there turns out to be a way for you to make this dream come true- it sounds so perfect for an add person. Good luck! You are really fortunate to even know your passion.

But almost as soon as the idea was budding, it ended....You can't fly if you take AD's and/or if you've had any previous diagnosis of bipolar disorder. I've been diagnosed bipolar II.
