Fraser tells his reader that he was often described as “disruptive” and “unfocused” in his grade school years. As Giles continues, he describes his mischievous behavior as a passing phase where there were other things he desired more than going to class and because his desires were not satisfied he rebelled. “This may be a less noble account, but hardly pathological, or in need of some medical classification” (Fraser 261). Many young children experience this same phenomenon; today a term scientists deem as ADHD. “Since the early 80’s, society has decided that adolescent trouble-making is some sort of medical condition” (Fraser 261).

He was diagnosed with Phimosis at approximately six months of age. David was taken to the hospital at eight months for the standard procedure of circumcision.
