‘I was born into a dysfunctional family’: Father speaks about his children’s struggles with ADHD
RIT, N.Y. — Father of four, Eric Puzio, has a new story to tell.
The 52-year-old has been diagnosed with ADHD, and now he wants to share his story with the world.
“I have two sons and a daughter.
My sons are 17 and 17,” Puzios son told CBS News.
“I have a daughter that is 20 and she is also diagnosed with the condition.”
Puzio is the founder of RIT Academy, a program that focuses on learning for adults with ADHD.
It’s been an experience for him.
“My children were brought up in a dysfunctional household.
I have two kids, they were all raised in that environment.
It was a dysfunctional environment, and I am dealing with it,” he said.
Puzios sons are in his 60s and 70s, and his oldest son has been dealing with the disorder since he was four.
Puzias oldest daughter, who is 30, has ADHD herself.
Pizio, who lives in the Bronx, says the diagnosis has affected his life and the quality of his life.
“When I was diagnosed, I was very confused and I didn’t know how to deal with it.
So it’s a lot of challenges to deal the medication.
It is very difficult for me to get the medication to work,” he told CBS.
Pozio says he has struggled with depression, anxiety and a loss of confidence.
He says the medications he takes have not worked.
“It has been a very hard process.
The medications have been effective at getting my medication to me, but they have not been effective for my depression and anxiety,” he added.
When asked if he is a hero to his family, Puzi said, “Yes, I am.
I am not.
I did not deserve to be diagnosed with this.”
Pizios son, who also suffers from ADHD, said his father was a man of integrity.
“He’s not a villain,” Pizio said.
“He has done everything he can to help me through this.
He is not the villain.
I feel like I have been raised by someone that is a good person.”RIT Academy is a program for adults diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.
It aims to provide intensive instruction to help adults who have ADHD learn to manage their disorder and manage their lives.
“You can have an ADHD diagnosis and have a great life, but the symptoms and the severity of it can make you feel worthless.
You have to be a good role model for your kids, and the medication can really help,” Puhios son said.
