She tried way too hard in college and when that failed, she pulled away. Yeah now that I know more about ADHD, I can see why she is the way she is at times. I used to think she just didnít give a crap, and in some cases she really doesnít and has even admitted it, but in other cases it is just her ADHD. I do give her credit for not using her ADHD as an excuse for bad behavior though. And I am glad you told me how you deal with ADHD and i hope you find friends that will last a long time.
That's super common for people in general to struggle with creating meaningful friendships in college. ADHD can make it even harder. Research shows that quality matters a lot more than quantity, so if you think of her as one of your quality friends, then just make sure that you're communicating to her whatever needs you have as a friend!
