Ya, I feel like one of the biggest challenges of ADD is that often it comes across as someone just being lazy. Like the garbage thing, most peole don’t understand that even routine things you do every week or everyday, even if you have tools to help you with it are sometimes easilly forgotten by people with ADD.

I used to not talk about my ADD too, because growing up I was expected just too buck up and bear it and it was a source of shame. At this point though I’ve come a long way in trying to understand and forgive myself fo all the countless small mistakes I make, I just wish sometimes the people in my life would accept it too.

Thanks yall for replying though, it’s nice to know some people out there get it. 🙂
