Nov 19, 2018 · ADHD in Mental Health

I recently stared my freshman year of high school. Talkative and excessively hyper are words that have always been closely assosciated with me. Also, lack of attention was a topic often talked about between my teachers parents, and a goal they often set for me. My parents, who I don’t blame whatsoever, dismissed these as issues requiring a doctor and figured I would grow out of this, which makes sense considering these were in my elementary days. Now, atleast 4 years later, I still experience all of these issues and more, at a heightened amount. As far as attention, I feel like I have no choice and fall victum to it. I can be paying attention to the most interesting thing and boom, my imagination swoops me out of wherever and I can’t pull my head out of the sky until it falls. I never felt weird in my hyperness, but my friends would often be like “chill” and I would be confused because I didn’t realize I wasn’t being chill. Anyways, to sum things up, I think I might talk to my parents and pediatrician, but I don’t want it to to seem like a cry for attention or such sorts. Should I talk to my parents/doctor about it or is this a normal experience for high schoolers? If I should seek help about this, I don’t really know how to. How do I?
