School work

by Grayson
(Roundrock, Texas )

I haven't been diagnosed with add yet but when I read the criteria for add (inattention type) i feel like I am reading about myself. I have all the classic add inattention symptoms. My school work (for as long as I can remember) has always suffered because of this, I cannot keep my mind on homework/schoolwork etc. For more than 2-7 minutes. It has always taken me atleast 2 hours to do homework even when it was just one simple thing. And because of this, my parents always yelled at me because I was SO FREAKING SLOW when it came to doing my work. My parents even assumed I didn't even care about school or grades (but at the same time they knew I get panic attacks about school, so....?) and they TOLD me that I didn't care.


But this year is a new year, and my alledged ADD is being carefully "investigated" by my parents along with a mental health profesional. So wish me luck and I hope everyone is succesful with managing there symptoms!
