Hey ADD/ADHD people, I have parents that dont believe that have ADD. I have not been diagnosed by a doctor but my mother will not let me even bring it up. I very sure i have ADD because i have had teachers in the past say so and i have ADD/ADHD friends who have noticed the way i do things.I get overwhelmed easily and my ADD makes it hard to function at what my parents want me to do. What should i do to be diagnosed and be able to get help?
I don’t know that a doctor would see you to evaluate you without a parent. However, I would talk to your guidance counselor at school — sometimes they can help with these conversations with your parents.
