What Do You Want People To Know About ADD/ADHD?

Because it's so much more than just being "easily distracted."

If you are diagnosed with ADD/ADHD, you know that it can be a very complicated and personal disorder.

So you may have also had to deal with some judgement or stereotypes from people who don't understand ADD/ADHD.

But we want to set the record straight. So tell us, what do you wish people knew about the disorder?

Maybe you wish more people understood that it's a legitimate neurological condition that changes your brain.

Or that there are actually three different types of ADD/ADHD.

Maybe you want people to understand that it impacts every part of your life and relationships — not just school.

Perhaps you wish more people understood what your medication does and why you need it.

Or maybe you just want people to know that having ADD/ADHD doesn't make you any less intelligent.

No matter how long you've been diagnosed with ADD/ADHD, we want to know what you think other people should understand about the disorder and how it affects your life.

Tell us in the comments section or submit your thoughts with a photo in the Dropbox below.

Sometimes, it's easier to express or explain what it's like to live with ADD/ADHD through photos (like I did here!) So feel free to either tell us in words via the comments section or send us a photo and description using the Dropbox!

If you’re having trouble uploading your photo, you can email it to with the subject line “ADHD Post Submission.”

Your story might be featured in an upcoming BuzzFeed Health post!
