since when is everyone suddenly an expert on mental health? if i went to the doctors and they said "you show some symptoms of cancer, we should schedule a proper diagnosis" i dont think anyone would say "no you dont have cancer theres no way youre doing fine" but if my therapist says "you show some symptoms of adhd, we should schedule a proper diagnosis" suddenly my parents know all about adhd and are saying "no you dont have adhd theres no way your grades are good and you dont have the symptoms"
@132ikl God fuck my mum did that to me. After *several* of my ADHD friends mentioned to me that y'know maybe I might be ADHD too, I said that to my mum and she dismissed it because I was never "bouncing off the walls" as a child. Apparently she forgot that "attention deficit" is part of ADHD too.
