You asked about patience. I too had this “problem” of thinking that everyone arount me was normal and that they had to be patient with me. Then my therapist put it in terms that i could understand and that I could share with other.

ADHD is not just a problem. It is a documented illness. And being so, there is not much you can do to cure it. You may, with medication, get reasonable control of it.

If you had cancer, do you think that those around you would blame you for getting it? Probably not. Well it is the same with ADHD .

We’ve done nothing wrong. nothing to bring this on ourselves.

Once we realize this and get others to do the same, the whole process should be much easier on them and us.

I hope this helps. I know it helped me.
