When Everyone Knows the ‘Answer’

“As ADHD gets diagnosed more frequently and receives more media attention, all of a sudden, everyone seems to know the “answer” to my problems. What can I say to these people?”

If people frequently comment on your “problems,” you might want to explore the possible reasons with your doctor. Your ADHD symptoms may not be properly treated.

If these people are simply butting in, you might say, “I appreciate your concerns. However, I am working with a competent medical professional and feel that I am in good hands.”
