ADHD myths
As someone who just found out a couple years ago that I had ADHD for most likely all of my life, I began devouring every book,video, and white paper I could find on the subject.  One of the first things that really struck me was the wide range of opinions even among professionals regarding ADHD.

I've read everything from the authors suggesting we are damaged goods if we have ADHD and should just take our meds and shut up... to were all amazing geniuses with superhuman powers. Then of course there is the camp that denies ADHD is real.  Of course, at one time people thought the world was flat and elephants held it up.

Research continues to expose the myths and misunderstandings at a ever increasing rate.  However, until the population is fully educated about ADHD, we must not be defined by uninformed opinions about what ADHD is. Our gifts and struggles are both unique and often common to those with ADHD. Yet we never should be defined solely by ADHD, our gifts, or our struggles.
