Something that sort of ticks me off is that ADD and ADHD is seen as just regular people. Those that are just a little extra. ADD is ruining my life and is the most severe I have. Despite that, people feel that it's not real.

If I say I have autism, people are all oooh you must be so disabled, but my autism is super mild compared to my ADD. What do I tell people? It is maddening.

It is really hard for people who don't struggle to understand how every aspect of life is imparied and unrooted by ADHD. I personally have just learned to not care what others say, own my ADHD and learn all I can to better myself and overcome the obstacles it brings. Times are changing however-- I do think there is a shift (for better or for worse) to the awareness of ADHD. Those who know, know the struggle. Those who don't need to educate themselves.

I think maybe it is too hard to understand.
