I fell into a pit of depression

In college, I understood the concepts and got the work done quickly and easily. It wasn’t until my second year of college where I began to take upper division classes filled with harder concepts and tasks. I had to learn how to sit down and actually read the textbook. I could not sit down and focus in both class and at home when trying to finish my homework. I began to run behind on all of my classes and had to result in withdrawing from so many classes that I lost my scholarship. I felt like there was something mentally wrong with me and I fell into a pit of depression. How could something so easy before now become one of my greatest challenges? Finally, this last summer I went and saw a doctor about this; they diagnosed me with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Once prescribed me with the right medication and dosage to help me stay focused, I went from 8 hours to complete one lab, to finishing it in under 3 hours.
