ADHD TIPS FOR YOUR LIFE – THE 15 RULES OF LIVING WITH ADHD


ADHD Rule 1. Don’t tell most people that you have ADHD

 

I rarely tell people about my ADHD in the real world for the following reasons:

  • Most people don’t care if you have ADHD – not your boss, co-workers, friends, or even family members in many cases (an unfortunate reality)
  • The mainstream media has convinced most people that ADHD isn’t a real condition (another massive problem)
  • Most people think you’re playing the victim card when you tell them that you have ADHD
  • Most people think that taking prescription ADHD medication to manage your ADHD is like ‘cheating’ (people will become very envious of you)
  • Everyone wants to give you their personal opinion on your medical condition
  • Some people will try to exploit your situation by asking you for ADHD medication (never do this – not once)

After making the mistake of telling people about my ADHD in the past, and getting literally zero benefits in return, I now realize that it’s in your best interest not to tell most people about your condition.

I understand talking about ADHD with your significant other, and other people who you’re extremely close with.

But, in my experience, telling people about your ADHD usually leads to other people holding your condition against you (it’s really unfortunate – but it’s also reality).
