“When I hear people popping off that they think they must be ADD I just want to scream. Those people are making light of a disorder that is devastating to those of us who truly carry that burden. ”

Aren’t you projecting a fair bit? How do you know they themselves don’t struggle? How do you know they make light of the disorder?

Did you ever consider that comments like these might deter people who legit might have ADHD from seeking evaluation because they don’t want to be “one of those” and rather continue to suffer in silence?

At the end of the day, how does it impact YOU if some random other person gets misdiagnosed?
