so i am sure i have adhd, ive been wanting to go to the doctor to do something about it, but i havent been able to get an appointment. my parents think im fine and tell me so everytime i bring it up, my mom is telling me to go to the doctor and see. But, everytime i do something wrong, or forget something, or if im “lazy” (stuff thats bc of the adhd) she will get mad at me and yell at me. it makes me feel so bad and i always feel really bad for the rest of the day, i get very down on myself. everytime this happens i get so anxious and frustrated. i just wish that i was better and that i could fix it.

      If you’re new to this app you’ll find out soon you’re not alone! You’re ADHD isn’t a sickness it is a gift. Your brain functions on a higher frequency or vibration. There is great power in that. People that don’t have this don’t understand and never will. Just imagine if schools had ADHD specific classes. Imagine if there were entire schools for us! The incredible things we could do if we were able to learn how we are supposed to learn. We are incredible people being told to suppress our abilities and be ashamed of who we are! This world is has not been made for the divergent. Medication will help you focus but it won’t help with everyday things like forgetting to call someone or to take out the trash. We just have to learn different ways to remember, different ways to learn. But once we do learn something we are amazing at it! For us to learn and perform at our best it has to be something we are passionate about! None of this will be easy, but the first step is to learn to LOVE your self. You have powers beyond your wildest imagination. Believe. Open your mind to embracing how your brain works and you’ll truly see it’s potential. Hang in there we are here for you.

      I feel you, almost the same thing happened to me. I always felt guilty when I told people I felt like I might have ADHD because I felt like I was trying to make an excuse for being "lazy." My mom reacted the same way and every time I tried to bring it up, she would say "you're fine" and clearly I wasn't. A lot of people would tell me that I was distracted or forgetful or just unable to pay attention, some of my teachers noticed, but they would just say that I'm lazy on reports, it's hard when people are so ignorant, it's really a struggle. Every time I would read the symptoms of ADHD or read about what people with ADHD go through, I felt like I was reading my life. Hope all goes well for you btw :)
