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. 😔

      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!

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