I just want people to know that even though it has an awful name, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder is actually a devastating neurological illness. It’s deeper than it seems.
Sometimes it gets so bad I can’t even think straight or get anything finished. Being restless as an adult in public is not only tiresome, it’s embarrassing - acting on impulse, saying things and wishing you could take them back. All of these things are tough to live with, not to mention having constant sleeping difficulty.
How about emotional instability, at times saying ‘I love you’ to friends and family like a billion times and other times wanting to punch someone out – being so distracted that you can’t drive a car, finish a Movie, read a long novel or even say a prayer in your head without getting your attention pulled elsewhere.
It’s tough and I just wanted to let people know it’s not the joke everyone thinks it is.
