I was diagnosed at a young age, though, I was never treated.. I was doped up for a good 2 years until my father got custody and got me off meds (not abruptly of course). I was around 9 or 10 at the time, I never really thought about my condition up until VERY recently. And honestly? It's kinda weird, I dunno why but it just is. I had the sudden urge to start researching and I realized that my entire life I've been living with severe ADHD symptoms and never really thought about it too much!
I used to be a gifted kid, get straight A's with a fat grin. Then.. I just stopped being good at stuff. I couldn't focus, well, on things that I should be focusing on. I am a lazy person who is usually unmotivated to do anything and I don't know if it's because of ADHD or just because that's who I am.
I started researching a bit (please keep in mind that i am not an expert please take the following with a grain of salt)(I seriously don't get that expression) and found out that Neurotypicals think differently than people who are neurodivergent. That was a mind-blowing thing to hear, all my life i've just been /thinking/ the fact that I can get lost in my own mind is sick, and then I realize that other people don't think like that. ITS JUST WEIRD!
Oh yeah hi everyone I'm new here and I wanted to talk about somebody about ADHD but the circle of people that I'm around usually are too judgemental for me. I thought maybe talking to people who relate to me might help, Anyway here's a nice picture of a gecko I found on google!
I'm sorry for my post being too unorganized.
