Hey! I was wondering if anyone else here was diagnosed with ADHD twice. I was diagnosed as a child, but my parents assumed I would grow out of it so I never received treatment for it. I found out about this when I was 28, and it was like something clicked in my brain. I always felt there was something wrong with me and like I had so much potential that I couldn't live up to for some reason. I got another diagnosis as an adult, but really wish my parents did something about it when I was a kid. I feel like I could've accomplished so much more if they did. 😔

    Similar situation here. I’m still trying to recover my self esteem!

    Wow. Seriously the same situation. I saw a psych when I was a kid who diagnosed me and my mom didn’t want to put me on stimulants for I was a child. However, from a parents perspective I’ve been trying to understand that. Wondering what the trajectory of my life could’ve been is what weighs on me the most… But as an adult, I know that I can change it all. You can, too. Don’t dwell on the past. Start a new future for yourself. I started taking Adderall a few months ago. Changed my life. I’ve never felt better. If you have any questions, let me know. Good luck!
