Hi,

I would say it’s a good idea for 1 reason: Many people exhibit some of the same behaviors as people with ADHD, but don’t actually have it. I’m not minimizing what you’re saying and you may very well be right. Aaaand if you do have ADHD you might feel motivated to use the resources, such as this forum, that are available so you can get the help and support that only our tribe can provide. (Okay, so, technically, that’s 2 reasons.)

Just my 4 cents (adjusted for inflation 🙂
