Having been born with a bluish tint,(cyanotic?) PFO(never closed) ASD, Murmur over 45 yrs ago. All my childhood and adult life my ability to multi-task, concentrate verbal directions and or reading and need to re-read a few sentences has not been easy. Is there any known information about people who was born with what I described, and lving with ADD? Is there any forum with information how having CHD there is a chance of having learning difficulties?
I was at a support group with a friend for adults with learning issues and that question was unanswered.
I remember being told as a child, She is in "la la land". or she is in her little world of forgetting.
Is it possible for the two issues to go together?

Thank you
