I don’t want to brag or anything like that but all my life, I’ve been told I was an underachiever when really I tried so hard to succeed in school, being social, being healthy, etc. I always wondered why I couldn’t become perfect. I wouldn’t fail but I was just an average joe and nothing scares me more than being average. Finally, I get an answer to all my problems and that’s ADHD. I could never focus in school. I could never focus in conversations and just zone out. Now, my life has started getting better with what I like to view as a second chance with medication and if I got this far with this disadvantage, I know I can kickass with treatment. Months pass by and I do start performing better at school, I start engaging more with my co-workers who viewed me as the “weird kid” thanks to my impulsivity. I work full time at school and work but I can’t seem to balance studying, working, and being an enjoyable human being for others. My parents can’t support me financially and I can’t fail in school. After every solution comes more and more problems, what would you do in this situation? Without money, I can’t afford my share of the rent and my diet and without grades, I’ll be stuck being a soulless cashier with “Life is Good” by Drake, Future playing in the background as my thoughts skewer towards regret and anger of not discovering this earlier. I am 18 and need a year and a half left of school. College is my option too. Thanks in advance!
