Doing a lot better since getting meds

Adult ADHD Without Impairment?

Posted 09-16-11 at 12:14 PM by CrushCrush
Here's a video I made with my non-ADHD brother. He's been studying ADHD also. He's known me my whole life and spent most of our life living together so he knows me really well. Here we discuss people who have ADHD, but to him is it logical to say you have ADHD without impairments?
