I know that many people with ADHD get called lazy. I've read (via literature) that this is simply not true, but I get stuck with what the difference is...
- How do you know when you are (or someone else is) simply being lazy?
- How do you know when you simply lack motivation to do something?
- And is this the same as being lazy?
- Is it possible to tell the difference (both externally (IE: someone watching your actions or behaviors) and internally (IE: judging your own actions)) between when you're truly being lazy -- even if unintentionally -- and when you're simply having trouble with initiation as a direct result of the disability?
(Have there been studies on this? Textbook readings...?)
