When I first got diagnosed, no one in my family would believe I had ADHD. They just dismissed it. I couldn’t believe it. No one was upset when they found out my thyroid gland was under-active and I had to take medication for it, in fact I have to take it for the rest of my life.
No one said anything about that, or thought I was using it as some kind of excuse, or that pharmaceutical companies were making up Hypo-Thyroidism to sell more Synthroid and get kids hooked on Thyroid meds.
