I wish people saw the way I do.

I was diagnosed with ADHD in about the first or second grade, I am now a Junior in high school. Throughout all of these years of schooling not once was I given any accommodations. I am on a 504 plan for my depression and anxiety but not once in that plan is anything for my ADHD mentioned. My mom is also a guidance counselor for our school system and she, and all of my teachers but one, hold me to expectations that are way beyond my limit. I have tried and tried to talk to my mother about it but every time I bring it up.. I get ignored. I want and try to live up to everyones expectations of me but I just can’t and that frustrates me. I constantly think about how different my life would have been if I was never diagnosed: how much easier it would be.
