So I was diagnosed with ADHD in elementary school because I stopped doing my homework and was struggling in 4th grade compared to my previous grades.
I was wondering if any of you other 4s were diagnosed with this as well. Lately I've been wondering if ADHD is more to do with your way of seeing things rather than any sort of mental deficiency, because although I've been assured time and time again that my ADHD is "severe" I've always found ways to pull it together and focus. I can describe my experience as as learning to work with it, and that once you learn to look at life differently it stops being an impairment and more of a different way of looking at things. That is the conclusion I came to about regarding my own diagnosis, which happened around late high school, then it hit me that that sounds an awful lot like 4s (especially us 4w5's) experiencing our own abstract fantasy worlds and learning to live in reality.
And so now I'm asking you guys! Have any of you been diagnosed with ADHD? What are your thoughts on ADHD? Do you think I'm way wrong?
