Reply To: scared to tell…


I can understand being afraid to ask. Are your symptoms affecting your grades at school? What is it that makes you want to be diagnosed? I ask because medication has side effects that may not be worth it unless you really think you need it.

If so, I think your parents would understand. At most schools, the school counselor or diagnostician would be happy to talk to you also. They can help you talk to your parents.

Good luck in whatever you decide!
