Okay, well since about 6th or 7th grade, I've thought I was Add. Now I am a 16 year old 10th grader. I have just recently confronted my 'rents about add in relation to me. I went to my councellor at school and she told me although she couldn't diagnose it, it sounded like I have add. Well, so I told my parents this too. My mom just took the Conners test, and all my teachers were questioned on what they thought. They all think that I may have a slight case, but nothing severe. However, they DO NOT UNDERSTAND! I've been terribly shy my whole life. I've been so to the point where when I was younger I was afraid to even speak... let alone let on in class that I was havign difficulty. At home I've always felt pressured to be a perfect kid. (Middle of four very brilliant children is hard to live up to!!) Well, no one seems to really believe that I have a severe case of this. Everytime I go through the symptoms it is a distrubing reminder of what all I've gone through my whole life. Everybody seems to believe that since I'm not a distrubance in class or even a great deal of a fussbudget, (but it is worse now as I'm older), that it just is not so abotu add. What can I do?? I'm feelign so alone on all this lately! Thanks! email your responses if possible!
