My Life With ADHD

My name is Carsyn, I am 13, and I have ADHD.

I have been having This disorder my whole life but I found out that I had ADHD when I was 6 or 7. At the moment I didn’t know what it was, all I knew was to take a certain medication everyday before I went to school.

When I went to 2nd grade I started asking my parents what I was taking the medicine for and they told me. After that I thought that I wasn’t any different than others.

When I got to 4th grade I thought it was a good idea to tell people about my disorder but it turned out to be a bad idea. I was bullied, people thought I was weird because I was just a little bit different than them, but now I’m in 7th grade and people expect me for who I am.

Sometimes people can hurt my feelings because they say things that are offensive to me but I just brush it off. But there is nothing wrong with having ADHD and having this disorder has helped me to be myself. I always think about God because he made me this way and he made me unique.
