Your mom believes the myths that are still prevalent about ADHD. You can have ADHD and get through school. You can have an ADHD diagnosis and never share it with anyone — it can’t “follow” you and haunt you if no one knows about it. If you’re struggling, get evaluated. Addressing it can help. Ignoring it will cause nothing but further struggle and pain.
