Terez, my ADD is why a have such a big mouth..

While Curt Schilling was leading the Red Sox to two World Series on the field, things on the homefront were falling apart with a depressed wife, an anorexic son and another son who was not just unruly – he was “irrational.” That’s according to Curt’s wife, Shonda Schilling, who has written a book, “The Best Kind of Different,” about her son Grant’s struggle with Asperger’s syndrome and the chaotic conditions in the Schilling household that led to the diagnosis. “We have all been fascinated with Curt’s ability on the mound, but no one, not even the people closest to the Schillings, have known the difficulties they encounter at home,” said Katie Leighton, the couple’s longtime publicist and Shonda’s close friend. According to the memoir, all four of the Schilling kids – as well as their All-Star dad – suffer from attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, a condition that causes inattentiveness, over-activity, impulsivity and behavioral problems. — Boston Herald
