Living with ADHD-His Personal Struggle
Imagine living in a fast-moving kaleidoscope, where sounds, images, and thoughts are constantly shifting. You feel easily bored, yet helpless to keep your mind on the task you need to complete. Your mind drives you from one thought or activity to the next. You're unable to sit still, plan ahead, finish the task or be fully aware of what's going on around you to where you don't notice when someone is speaking to you.
This has been what David Michael Carrillo faces while living with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder or ADHD. In his ministry presentation, he calls Fearfully & Wonderfully Made (Living with ADHD through stories and songs), David Michael openly shares his heart about the painful years of childhood and early adult life as he had to deal with, learning disabilities, ADHD, & rejections by peers that lead to the deep-rooted fear that kept him "trapped in a cage" of low self-worth. But he also shares about the Lord's faithfulness and the Gospel message that released him to "Fly Away".
