I am a college senior with ADHD. I am working on a blog post something along the lines of "6 (ish) things someone with ADHD wish you knew"

So- I need your help! I came up with the ones important to me, but I don't want to represent just myself so:

What is something you wish people knew about ADHD?

It can be related to anything- but things surrounding higher education is preferred.

Thank you,

When a teammate with ADD forgets an obligation or is late, don't be quick to assume he or she doesn't care. It is probably quite easy for such a person to become distracted by something interesting and loose tract of time and priorities.

I wish more people knew, there is much more to ADHD then just lack of focus or hyperactivity. They have no idea of the struggles we have with emotional regulation and its very common comorbids like anxiety and depression just to name a few.
