Hi,
Your situation reminds me very much of my own situation with ADHD. Just from reading your post it very well seems as if you could have ADHD. However, most of the time or at least is the severe circumstances it effects your grades. However, it does not in your situation. I don’t think it would be a bad thing to bring it up to your parents. If you do have it, it would help for them to understand how you perceive things through there own eyes. However, its not a necessity sense it doesn’t seem to impact your grades, so you wouldn’t need medicine. If your parents are the open type and would be willing to get you certifiably diagnosed I don’t see the harm in it. When my own parents learned about the disadvantage and struggles children with ADHD go through it made our relationships much better. Personally, it is up to you to decide if you want to tell them or not.
