Well, it’s good that he refilled your meds. But it still stings not to be validated, and that’s one of the big issues we deal with when friends, family, etc. — anyone who has the power to influence our emotions — says they don’t believe in ADHD or adult ADHD. Ridiculous. It makes us doubt ourselves and think, “If they’re right, and there is no such thing, then what is wrong with me? It must mean that I’m an idiot.” Let’s seize our power back and renounce that notion, here and now.
