That is so weird. I’ll have to tell that to the multiple doctors that diagnosed me. What med school did you graduate from again?

Telling anyone to calm down is a guaranteed way to not get them to calm down.

That’s exactly like saying everyone has depression because we all get sad. Which I really hope you know isn’t true either.

Just because I have ADHD doesn’t mean I’m qualified to diagnose you. But please, tell me more about how you couldn’t focus on your homework last night. Here’s a wild idea, call your doctor!

10. “You can’t have ADHD, you’re too smart.”

I know, right? Hard work never pays off.

11. “You need to act normal.”

You need to shove your face in a pile of shit.
