Having ADHD and being asked why I struggle to motivate to do things I wanna do or being told to “just try to focus better” is like living in a world where I’m using a Mac, and those people have a PC. And when I’m having computer problems they tell me to just press the Windows key on my keyboard. Like. I don’t have that button 😭
I feel the same way!!! It’s really hard for others to understand especially when they’ve never experienced any of this before. Have you tried explaining this to them? Maybe that’ll help.
yes it happens at my workplace and I had a panic attack and cried and got sent home. Like I don’t get scheduled anymore because of it
like they know I have ADHD and I was even giving pushback saying “yeah I’m trying as hard as I can I just struggle with this cause ADHD” and I’m told not to blame everything on it
Ik how it feels I struggle with it everyday bit it is controllable
It gets better
Strange analogy, but YES.
