She’s being a childish jerk.
I wasn’t DX’d until I was 37. My mother is a special ed teacher! I was so much less messed up than my brother and so well able to compensate in various ways that it occurred to no one that I wasn’t just a smart airhead or an “absentminded professor.” I was the first person to recognize my husband’s ADHD–and I STILL didn’t see my own. Only when keeping track of work plus 3 kids nearly killed me–STUPID things were also incredibly hard for me–AND I was trying to help our ADHD son that I realized that I was a classic girl with ADHD.
Not one person realized it before then. Not one. Including me!
