So, I recently realised I very probably have ADHD. Still waiting for a diagnosis, but I’m telling my close friends as it’s such a huge thing happening in my life right now!
And actually, one of my best friends very likely has it too. He has pretty much all the symptoms, so I want to mention it, but I’m afraid it will come out wrong if I don’t carefully think about what to say! I don’t want to sound like I’m trying to play a psychiatrist and “analyse” him, or like I’m projecting my own ADHD on him.
Have any of you been in that situation, either telling a friend/partner/family member or being told by someone that you might have ADHD? Do you have any tips for what really works, or anything I should avoid saying?
I’m probably just overthinking this, but I can imagine that if it comes out of the blue it could be quite shocking, so I’m curious to hear about your experiences and ideas!
Thanks for any help!!
