To a lot of people, ADHD is just a quirky, catchall term for being a little hyper and
distractable. But it’s actually so much more than that and it’s a lot harder to deal with
than most people realize.
Because while it’s tough enough to have ADHD as a kid, when you have ADHD as an adult, it’s almost more difficult because missing deadlines, being disorganized, and having difficulty concentrating at work isn’t attributed to you being “just a kid” anymore. Instead, you’re thought of as lazy, as careless. Incompetent. And that fucking sucks because you’re seriously doing everything in your power to stay ahead and things still fall through the cracks.
