I agree.
Tolerance is like the big scary boogie man that people unnecessarily worry about. Yes, it happens but ime its rare, and only an issue after years of stimulant use. Plus, when taken at theraputic doses its not as common.

As an adult, you are in the drivers seat. Surround yourself with allies who will support you through your ADHD struggles. For people who lecture about how ADHD isn't real, you don't need to engage with them. Offer them some educational materials (Russell Barkley), and invite to truly understand the disorder before they ignorantly try to lecture you again.
IMO it doesnt matter if you have people that understand adhd or not. Its none of their business.
