This is why I’m very apprehensive about talking about my problems and that I’m taking generic Concerta for A.D.D.
The thing is, if you don’t have A.D.D./A.D.H.D you will never understand how difficult a seemingly super simple task is.
Like in my case, taking the wheelie bin out to the curb on Thursdays (with exception for holidays) it’s ALWAYS on Thursdays, I have a weekly reminder set on my phones calendar and I even write a note and put it with my glasses before bed on Wednesday night, I will STILL forget half the time.
Yes I feel the same, it’s so frustrating to be an adult and have someone treat you like a child because of their ignorance about a legitimate medical condition.
