I don’t know what to do to help myself. I go to a ridiculously high acheiving school in the uk who have virtually no provision for students with ldd except telling me to “highlight things as it will help me remember them” my parents are both stressed people so telling them the true extent of how anxious i get would make things worse. My dad thinks keeping me of sugar would help but my mum refuses to help him as how can her “straight A” daughter have a learning disability. What do i do? Why would i be assesed as having add to a level that it seriously affects my relationships and school life yet NOTHING BE DONE ABOUT IT. I also don’t know how to tell my parents the anxiety of fulfilling deadlines and completing the 2-3 hour a night homework is slowly affecting my health as i find myself become more ocd about things. “Tap this 26 times” etc. sorry this may have been completely ridiculous but i am lost. What the hell do i do for myself?
