My parents don't even know cause every time it comes up in conversation, it is the "you don't have it, you were just lazy" attitude.
My Father and step-mom thought the same thing 10 years ago when I was diagnosed. I wasn't allowed to say I was being hyper as a kid, they said you aren't hyper you are just active. Now my three brothers & my step-mom have been diagnosed. We'll see about my youngest sister. Sucks for my brother who is 24, because he had to finish college without the diagnosis and without the meds. I bet he would have graduated with a better GPA had he had it!

Oh and we, both husband and I, keep it to our very close friends and our families know. Work will know when it needs to know.
