say whaaaat? is on a distinguished road
Cool say whaaaat?-ny

hey everyone im new im 15 and live in upstate ny, just moved from dc area.
everyone in dc and now up here too tells me i have add and ive taken lots of online tests which say i have it to. parents of add kids tell me i have it and people that have add also tell me they think i have it. my parents refuse to believe it and say im not trying and they never noticed symptoms before.

i think im probably inattentive type becasue i just zone out all the time but when im not zoned out i do "wildly silly" as ppl call it, things but i dont really remember being hyper as a kid but now when im with my friends i do really stupid random things that i find amusing and i never know whats going on, i cant follow conversations unless im talking, i interups myself all the time and when i know im not allowed to get out of my seat i have to move and i get anxious and sweaty if im absoultly not allowed to move.

but im not sure ive always been hyper like that, maybe in elementary school i was just allowed to move enough to not like freak out like that? i am impulsive, constantly change the radio, interupt ppl, forgetful, lose everything, always late, cross domient, creative, catch onto sports really easily, kinesteic learner get headaches all the time, people always tell me im really random/ ask random stuff. iive always had these symptoms but they werent as much a problem as they are now. im really smart and my teachers loved me becasue i would volenteer to help all the time maybe just to get out of my seat i dunno? little things annoy me like clothing textures, smells, food texture, people slightly touching me or being too close.

its always taken me much longer to do hw than other people. so sorry this was really long and boring. i would have skimmed through most of it. so if you think this is add or not could someone please tell me im really confused because im not very outgoing when im the new kid (ive moved 9 times, 11 different schools) but i am way outgoing when theres someone else whose new and im with my friends.

Hey say whaaat-- You sound like me when I was 15 (a LONG time ago). My neices & nephew are about you age & have moved several times too. You sound like a pretty "normal" teen,doing "normal teen" things.

As far as the ADD part, that something you'll either have to do some reasearch on & give to your parents to read or deal with until your 18 7& get DX on your own. For now though you're amongst friends & can get a lot of info & advice.

Check out the teen section, I bet you'll find a lot of common ground in there.
