2 Comments: How ADD (Inattentive Type ADHD) Looks a Lot Like Learning Disabilities

  1. As per usual, this “article” was a whole lot of generalization and nothing. I wanted to know WHICH learning disabilities are most often missed in diagnosis or misdiagnosed as ADHD. Thanks for wasting my time.

  2. I am 18 yrs old. I dropped out of continuation high school because I couldn’t sit in a classroom any longer. My anxiety was through the roof, I had no friends and I wanted out of there. I have dyslexia, Adhd inattentive, auditory processing disorder, anxiety, and depression. My sophomore year O started doing MJ carts and vaping. I was eventually approached by older seniors to sell drugs for them on campus. I found it exciting and I started having a lot of friends. But I also started taking more drugs as well, like Xanax. I eventually got kicked out of my high school the end of my junior year. My mom then kicked me out of the house. I went to live with my dad who has always been there for me. My parents were never together since I was born. My dad was always in my life and fought for me so my mom couldn’t take me from him. My dad picked me up from school that day and I’ve been home now for 16 months. But now I am stuck, I’ve been in my room mostly smoking MJ and vaping and I then every 5-6 weeks I go on a Xanax bings to forget about all my problems for a few days. This really worried my dad and step mom. I’ve been to counseling and taking meds. But I recently stopped all my meds. I’m stuck here in my room and in my head. I don’t know what to do or how to do it? My dads trying to help me but ion still stuck. Help please?!
