Explaining adhd problems to normal people
I was recently got diagnosed with ADHD. Im not on my medicine yet, and I feel like im drowning. How do you explain to your teacher that you just couldn’t find it in yourself to start your homework? Or how do you explain to your “normal” family all the issues you have and, why you cant get finish anything. Whenever things dont get done, or lost, I start to feel like im suffocating. People dont understand why you act this way. They think your over reacting. Or pulling the adhd card. In fact its the only thing keeping me from getting it done, because im not lazy! The stress combined with the inability to sustain attention is getting to me, and I feel like no one is even interested in “getting it.”
