Is ADHD Real or an Excuse?
3 More Reasons It Can’t be ADHD
Like any adult who is diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, one of my first reactions was, “But I can’t have ADHD. After all…” Followed by a slew of reasons why this couldn’t possibly apply to me.
Some of my ‘reasons’ actually had nothing to do with ADD. (For example, “I wasn’t bouncing off the walls as a kid.”) But many of my reasons that proved I couldn’t have this mindset actually indicated that I did!
The fact that almost everyone offers the same reasons why it can’t apply to them reflects the depth of misunderstanding that still haunts this diagnosis.
In a previous video I talked about 5 common reasons people offer that prove they can’t possibly have ADD, ones that actually suggest they do.
Here are three more.
