My name is Caldwell & im 20 years old & living in South Africa. I have been diagnosed with ADHD since birth & throughout my entire life i haven’t really been exposed enough about my condition. Since i left school the world outside is alot tough than i imagined & it’s been hard for me to cope lately. My friends don’t know enough about my condition which makes it hard for me to express myself & i can’t tell my parents about it because i don’t feel comfortable enough opening up to them. Which means i turned to the use of marijuana to make me feel okay & forget about my problems however i am not addicted to it, it’s just a now & again thing. Im a shy person & at times i struggle to open myself up, my self confidence/esteem is really low as is any kid with ADHD too. It came to a point where i needed therapy because i was in such a mess/state that i had no one to talk to cause they just didn’t understand.
From the beginning of last year I’ve decided to really do some research on it as i would like to know more about what our minds so different from the “normal kids” . But i have no idea where to start as there is so much research done on ADHD already, i just have no clue what to research. Im really new about learning & understanding the condition & in dire need of any help please:frowning:.
