ADHD? Don’t Label Me! – Part 2 – Video

Rick rants about labels. No parent wants to have their child ‘labeled’. That’s understandable. But often it becomes a defense, a way to not deal with the problem, or to deny there is a problem. “He’s just creative.” “She’s just a loner.” “Everyone is like that.” No, they aren’t. Not to this degree.

    Hello, I have been thinking that I have ADD for a while now. And recently it has been greatly affecting my life. For a while now I have been doing below my potential in school and I started to realize I have had these symptoms all my life. I am currently in the 8th grade and I am positive I have ADD. I always procrastinate(by the way I am currently procrastinating as I write this now because I had all weekend to do my homework and barely started) and do well under pressure. The thought that I have ADD first occurred in the sixth grade where my teacher told my parents that she thinks that I may have ADD. My parents and I quickly denied this primarily because I previously done well in the 5th grade(even though I did still procrastinate that year and had poor attention) and that teacher smoked, had children that do drugs, and overall was not that good of a teacher. As I got into 7th grade I considered it every once in awhile but was quickly shut and I never did research because I frankly didn’t want to know. Now, after doing research I seem to have close to all the common symptoms of ADD including a good portion of the ones in your unofficial ADD test. I am currently struggling with how to come out to my parents with my problem and getting tested. My parents work in the ER which allows them to experience all of the worlds worst versions of metal disorders, which gave them their mentality toward mentally disabled people. This makes this really difficult to come out the them. So please give me any advice you can on this subject. Thank you for your time.

    Amen! My parents knew, but didn’t tell me until I was in my late 40’s. with many failed attempts at a fulfilling, “normal” life. I did’t understand why EVERYTHING was harder for me than any of my peers, or why my peers never became my friends.
