My Family Thinks ADHD and LD Are a Joke
"I'm a 32-year-old teacher who still lives at home, and I have been diagnosed with ADHD and have other learning disabilities, including dyscalculia (trouble with numbers)," one reader tells us. "Lately, I've been feeling like the family joke. Just yesterday, when I asked my mom if she could pay me back the money I lent her over Christmas -- I transposed numbers in my check register (yeah, dyscalculia) and was short of money -- she started laughing. Am I being oversensitive? Is there anything I can do to change these family dynamics?"
