Premed dealing with adhd


#1

Hi! I was told I had ADHD at 11 years old, and my dr didn’t focus on my ADHD, but more my anxiety. I am just now realizing that my anxiety is onset by my ADHD, and it is because of all the research I have been doing which brought me to ‘How to ADHD.’ It changed my life for the better. I can finally just send a video to my family and friends and explain to them why I am the way I am. Every video I’ve watched about ADHD has brought me to tears, and I finally felt heard and understood. I recently found the channel when I was in the most boring semester of my life. I was devastated because we all know when bored…at least for me, I get nothing done. I told three of my closest about my ADHD, and they said it was an excuse and that I could do better. The saddest and most heartbreaking part was that they were doing better than me on exams and in the class even though I was the one teaching them the material on the exam itself. I’ve always struggled with labs. I finally understand why I can never do experiments without knowing what the next step is without asking the person next to me. Trust me, I know its sad. The weird thing is I worked as an EMT for a year, and any time there was a medical crisis-- my hyperfocus was on. Any time there is crisis or chaos, my brain is ready–except for exams. I have really been struggling with it, and I don’t know if any of you know but there are ADHD specialists. I had no idea, and my heart hurts that I didn’t know when I was younger.

hahahah there goes my adhd with a long ass story.

Anyways, thanks for having me!!
