Me 100% of the time. Luckily Ito help for my ADD when I was a child

fun facts!

  • ADD and ADHD are the same disorder, Attention Deficit Disorder was officially renamed Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder in 1994. Many people use ADD to refer to Type One presented here, and ADHD to refer to Type Two, but they are the same core disorder.
  • In many cases where ADHD carries into adulthood, it’s a genetic issue [My grandfather, mother, siblings, and I have all been diagnosed with ADHD], though this does not always occur.

hello yes this is me

more fun facts!

  • there are a lot of talks about how ADHD is overdiagnosed, and that may be true for boys, but for girls ADHD is severely underdiagnosed.
  • older studies mostly looked at hyperactive boys and that’s the perception we have of ADHD. because of this many girls will go undiagnosed until adulthood.
  • most girls/women who have ADHD are inattentive type. they tend to be introverted, disorganized and daydreamers. 
  • girls will internalize these as personal failings and teenage girls have a much higher rate of suicide and self harm because of it
  • ADHD is often comorbid with anxiety and depression, both of which are caused by the failings from having ADHD
  • depression can present itself differently in people with ADHD. it’s more of a discouragement from constantly failing, but it can be just as debilitating.
  • read this article from the atlantic: It’s Different for Girls with ADHD

AAaaaaaahhhhhh seeing this on my dash makes me so happy! I was diagnosed with ADHD when I was only three years old and I’ve struggled with it my entire life. In fact, I’m so disorganized and forgetful that my parents pulled me out of school so that I wouldn’t flunk it. I constantly forgot to hand in assignments, and my inattentiveness was so bad when it came to homework that my mom had to hover over me and make sure I did it every day. It was an extremely stressful ordeal, especially once I got to middle school. I was homeschooled for my high school years, using an independent study program, but I was so far behind on my assignments that that’s when my parents removed me from it by the time I was 15. I still don’t have a high school diploma, a driver’s license, or even a GED.

As a result of all of this, I’m dealing with anxiety and depression, as well, but with the help of medication and therapy, I’m getting things under check. I do okay without ADD-specific medication now, so I’m starting to feel much more confident about getting a driver’s license and just going and getting my GED so I can start looking for jobs.

ADHD is a seriously underrepresented mental disorder on this site, so I’m really happy to see this infograph.

Also its possible to have a combination of types 1 and 2

lifelong ADD patient here with some bitter remarks for onlookers:

fuck you if you ever tell someone that their ADD/ADHD isn’t real. fuck you. seriously.

on more than one occassion i have had people tell me they were fed up with my irresponsibility because i constantly forget and/or lose stuff like my keys, phone, and wallet. i used to lose my keys so often that i would lie about it to my mother. the punishment for losing my keys was to be grounded until i found them. the punishment for lying about it was to be grounded for three days. growing up was hard. this has been going on for so long that i have developed my entire life around it. by now my daily self-checks are as natural as breathing, but i still lose and forget things very often.

i’m fortunate that the remainder of my symptoms are under control. i have therapy for my anxiety and medication for my inattention, and because of these simple gifts, i have been able to go far with my life.

my fiance is also an adult living with diagnosed ADD and the difference between he and i is that i have had treatment and support for my illness while he has not. i could write a book about how unfair this man’s life has been and how difficult it is to help him get treatment when the only thing he has been told all his life that his symptoms are just in his head and that he’s just lazy/stupid/forgetful/etc.

i guess what i want to say here is please, please, be kind to your friends with ADHD. do not dismiss their symptoms and especially not their illness altogether. so often have i been told straight to my face that “ADHD isn’t real” that i’ve stopped mentioning it altogether unless it’s absolutely relevant.

doofusvirtuoso i think that’s you in the infograph, even has your trademark red shirt.

Yeah, pretty much spot on.

#I love how in the movies he’s like ‘yes. it hurts every time they come out’ ANGST ANGST ANGST #and in the cartoons he’s just like yolo i’m a fuckin mutant bitch this shit better make my life easier somehow #so he just uses his claws for everyday tasks #because what good are they if YOU DON’T USE THEM TO CUT SALAMI 

I find this oddly soothing.
