Re: Could it be ADHD after all?

A lot of girls, especially bright girls who do well academically, slip through the cracks.

I graduated with a degree in elementary education in the early '90's (not so long ago) from one of the best teacher prep schools in my state and never learned about girls having ADHD or Inattentive ADD or Dyscalculia, which I was also diagnosed with when I was diagnosed with Inattentive ADD in 2010.

Even if you did present growing up but your teachers, parents and doctor aren't aware it exists or don't believe in it, especially if you did well academically, then nothing they saw would clue them in.

As someone said you are 2/2 as far as psychiatrists diagnosing it then the anti-depressants and mood stabilizers didn't work but the ADHD meds did.

Look at it like research. If it were put to the test: what does the evidence show?

Shame derives it's power from being unspeakable.
Shame corrodes the very part of us that believes we are capable of change.
Shame cannot survive being spoken. It can't survive empathy.
