Scottish singing sensation Susan Boyle is convinced doctors misdiagnosed her when they wrote her off as a mentally ill toddler.
The star, who shot to fame after competing on TV show Britain's Got Talent last year (09), suffered minor brain damage after her mother was forced to have an emergency Caesarean section birth.
Doctors claimed Boyle would grow up with emotional and learning difficulties, but the 49 year old is adamant their predictions did her more harm than good.
She tells U.K. broadcaster Piers Morgan, "Some people in the medical profession said to my mother when I was one years old, 'Don't expect too much of her.'
"How can they foretell that at that young age? They can't. Hyperactivity in the '60s was considered a mental illness. It's not; it's Attention Deficit Disorder, they call it now. I think with myself, it was the wrong misrepresentation. My mum and dad knew it was, (doctors were) professionals and they tended to think that doctors were God and they knew everything, but they don't know everything."
