I joined this group not because I have children with ADHD (yet) but because I do. I distinctly remember what it was like as a kid/teenager/adult who always felt like nobody ever really understood me. It was a huge relief when I got the diagnosis and began taking meds and was able for the first time in my life to concentrate and focus and remember things. It was a huge relief to realize that I wasn't broken just different. I figured maybe I could be helpful to someone with a child who has ADHD but doesn't know how to explain themselves to anyone.
