While disclosing ADHD in the workplace is typically not advised by most ADHD experts, I do wonder if a confidential conversation with human resources is in order. Maybe not disclosing your ADHD, but simply the bullying in general, to get some guidance on how it should be handled.

Your Workplace Rights with ADHD

I see a lot of this “teasing” when people don’t understand that there’s a physical condition behind the symptoms they see on the surface.

Maybe next time, you ask one of your co-workers how it would feel if you mimicked or teased them about ___________ (something “out of the norm” they do).

It’s a tough situation for sure, and I’m sorry you’re going through it.
