Since I haven't posted in a long while I figure I would return with a topic that's been on my mind for a while now. As an ADHD guy one of the most frequent and frustrating things that's happened throughout most of my adult life (even though I'm 25) is I'm treated so differently than everybody else. I hear this is a problem with many ADHD clients such as myself, but I do want to know if anyone else has gone through this.
Almost everyday I'm consistently treated like I'm half my age or people act as if I'm not as capable and I don't understand why. It has nothing to do with people thinking less it's just the fact I'm restrictive from doing anything to the point where it feels like I've become my disability somethings and it really takes its toll on my patience. It also doesn't help that you don't exactly have the social skill to keep up with your friends as if feels like you're always the one playing catch up to them, which is how I feel around friends online. Perhaps its just me who feels this way on my side?
I just can't articulate why I'm treated so differently from other people like I can't do anything. It feels very embarrassing at times and even when socially trying to interact with people. It often times makes me feel alone and like I might not be able to do anything. Sure there are things I'm not able to do as much particularly when it comes to motor skills, but it's not limited to just that and I don't know why when you have ADHD you feel treated differently than other people.
