I’m so sorry your mom isn’t open to the idea of ADHD. There is a lot of misinformation about ADHD out there that fuels this.

Here’s a diagnosis guide for when the time comes:

ADHD in Adults: Your Guide to Symptoms, Diagnosis and Treatment

And know you’re doing awesome recognizing that something is off and looking for help and wanting to do better. That’s a huge step in the right direction that many struggle with.
