I'm not hyper but I have difficulty focusing and pretty much have every symptom listed for ADHD excluding the hyperactivity. It has affected my life in very negative ways. I barely graduated high school. I went into the Marine Corps and went to bootcamp without medication.. Was fcking terrible. I was singled out every day unti I just up and quit. I tried college and just couldnt do it. I tbhought I was just defective and I was just a shitty lazy person. My relationship with my girlfriend ended and failed because of this. She thought I didn't care because of my inattentiveness. Confidence took a huge toll. I went to a doctor told him I was depressed and desribed everything and he told my I have ADHD. The thing that I didn't understand is that all my IQ test that I've taken in the past I've scored an average 115-120 which is slightly above average. So I excused it off as just being lazy before.
I started taking adderal and my life has dramatically changed.. I'm a 2nd year engineering student and I have accomplished so much financially. I'm doing everything I want to do. The thing is that I'm sort of self conscience about telling a potential future girlfriend this. Not being nice or any of that please give me an honest response. Turn off or is it fine?
