I'm ADHD and Misunderstood

by anna
(salisbury, nc)

i am about 17 years old and was diagnosed with adhd when i was 12 years old. for years i have been able to keep a b average and in sixth grade was the only grade i struggled with because my mother had a new job and was not there to help with my work. I had been tested and was above average in certain areas. i am good at english (like the vocabulary and spelling) math, mainly alegbra, and health sciences and general science. i have struggled with things like history but my memory helps because i have photographic. i am now in tenth grade and am taking honors classes which stimulate me. There are other diagnosis on me b/c of what i dealt with growing up, like divorce and emotional abuse. I am thinking that i am gifted but i am probably the worst cook and with things that require lots of concentration at home.
