ADHD stinks. You can’t focus on anything.
In school my grades got really bad because I just kept focusing on things
that weren’t important like when I have to be doing math and be focusing on that
one crumb on the desk. I’ve had ADHD since birth basically. And it’s been
really hard. ADHD also has side effects such as depression and anxiety. And I’ve
had to press him since fourth grade and I’m in eighth grade now. ADHD also comes
with a lot of pills…I used to take about three to five pills. I’ve taken that
range of pills my entire life. Today I take three pills a day; an antidepressant,
a focus medicine and a medicine to help me sleep. Did I mention that ADHD also
comes with insomnia? I’ve had insomnia since third grade. My insomnia I got so
difficult that I just couldn’t sleep at all I stayed awake for a maximum of four days
and I just kept falling asleep in school. During recess I fell asleep and woke up
to all my friends staring at me. Yeah ADHD is probably the most degrading
disorders of all time in my opinion. Just comes with so many side effects and
makes you really self-conscious. People also probably think I’m really weird in
school…especially because sometimes when I get really upset or anxious I just
curl up in a ball and don’t talk to anyone. And that can last for up to an
hour or two. It’s just been really hard to cope with it and I’m just really
hoping I can learn to manage it better as an adult.
Overall ADHD has made me a better and and not-so-good person at the same time.
I don’t really know how to explain it. I feel like ADHD is kind of a burden but
it’s kind of a special thing to have because kind of just boosts your
creativity level like… noticing
things just gives you a better imagination.
