I had the biggest criticism from my sister. I’m not diagnozed but I’m working on getting tested. The whole thing is practically imposible in the place I live in.

My sister berated me over these issues and the irony is that I think she has ADHD too because it’s in our genes. She’s hyperactive and she can’t be still and all the symptoms I read about H part of ADHD really shows on her. I want to talk to her about it I haven’t found a way to do it. I haven’t even told her that I think I have the disorder.

Both our parents exhibit these symptoms but getting any medical help in this country is close to imposible.

If ADD is 40 years behind other syndroms and disorders, my country is 40 years behind other country in any field including medical especially ADHD and neurological issues.

The country is Serbia.
