I wish they understood the same as what “syddog9” mentioned! Also, I wish they understood that I’m not this way on purpose. I’m as in control of my adhd as I possibly can be. I can’t afford behavioral therapy but I’m medicated, I eat healthy, try to get enough sleep & I use alarms, apps, timers & a bujo journal. I’m not blaming it on my adhd, I have & will always have adhd. I wish they knew that when they get frustrated with me I’m genuinely frustrated too. They just have to deal with my adhd when they’re around me. I deal with it constantly.
