When I was 11, I was diagnosed with ADHD. It was a great relief to know why I was struggling, but having an ADHD diagnosis did not in and of itself resolve any of my challenges, it simply categorized and in some cases amplified them.
You might think I am duped daily by entitled kids who want medications to get better grades. As one girl bragged to Schwarz, "If you keep playing the angsty-teen role, you'll get something good." Give me a break.
