I have a group of friends that are hecka smart (I am the youngest by a year or two)I mean like A year ahead in all classes. Their parents are Harvard lawyers professors, yea you get the point. So in this friend group I am totally the seventh wheel. However I am fine with that and I do not want to change it. Basically me and one other in the group have ADHD and i still do fine. However she is a bit behind she is very smart and has siblings in very good colleges, however she can not keep up with the rest of the group and resents the others because of it. So she is slowly starting to get depressed by the pressure, and drifting away from her friends. She is not happy and I am trying to help her as I can relate to her in a lot of ways. Ex. ADHD, and being the stupid one in the family. I believe that her changes are a result of her adderall medication, puberty and just being a teen. Ok so does anyone have any advice or suggestions?
Thanks for the help,
Sup Jeftheginger! Don't sell yourself short there buddy! I read stuff from 40 y.o.s that don't pass grade 4 in terms of grammar and structure. Your text was easy to read!

Adderall can make people less social at first. Some even develop social anxiety, so I'm amazed that you figured that one out! So you're right when you say it's her Adderall that's changing her, but you also have to realise that she will get better grades while on Adderall because she'll listen more.

Her cutting Adderall would probably mean failure, but help her your own way buddy!
