Hello, last year I was sent by my college to a psychologist and she did a couple of tests on me, the psychologist diagnosed me with ADHD. I couldn't believe it because I was never diagnosed as a child and grew up in an environment where they did not believe in it. After the diagnoses I was a bit ashamed to tell my family about it or even get extra help from my college regarding my studies, I still am. Is this normal for adults?I am currently 23! Also, I really do not want to take the medications for three reasons. 1. I do not like the side effects I got from taking the basic dosage of 5mg. 2. It effects my sports training. 3 My future employers might not like it.
Furthermore recently I have not been myself ever since I left the medications, it's kind of hard to explain. Any advice for me?
