I just realized a really important reason for getting the diagnosis! I’m apporoaching my first PSAT in the eighth grade in a few weeks and it’s a timed test. So it’s very important for me to have that label in order to get accommodations for the real thing in juinior year of high school. Because that’s a very big thing for me taking a super long time on tests!
Oh also, I was thinking of texting my mom about ADHD while she’s on her walk right now. She already knows most of my symptoms she just doesn’t know that they’re symptoms of ADHD. Is it unreasonable to ask for advice on what to say to her? Like on a text? I don’t know. If you have any tips that be great. But I doubt anyone will see this in time. But for the future!
EDIT: ok yeah, so maybe texting isn’t the answer. Any tips for how to strike up the convo in person? She already knows all or most of the symptoms. It’s just about bringing up the name ADHD.
