I was diagnosed with ADHD when I was in second grade and I am anxious because I am seriously shy and have never done anything like this. Coupled with ADHD I also have anxiety. Currently I am not taking anything for ADHD but I am taking anti-anxiety medication. To me ADHD is a part of me that not many understand. I live in a toxic household where I am constantly told I am too sensitive and need to do better. My brother once told me that watching How To ADHD was making me think things that I identify with is a lie and I don’t actually have the disorder. It doesn’t help that I always interrupt people talking to me or blurt out things with no thought what so ever. I am also a huge nerd and they can’t understand when I can’t focus on anything but a new book I started or a piece of art I am working on. I guess I’m lost, being told that I don’t have this disorder when I have a diagnosis. I don’t know what to think so I came here. Though I will say it is neat to be here.
