I'm very frustrated because I'm trying to get accommodations from my college, but the amount of things I need to provide to prove I have adhd is absolutely ridiculous. Any other mental or physical disorder just needs you to fill out a form, but to prove you have adhd there's a 3 page list of info and documents I have to provide. Why is it so much more difficult for adhd? Why can't they just believe me when the doctor signs the form like everyone else?
I don’t know. It’s ridiculous, making people who have executive dysfunction do all this stuff that requires good executive functioning.
I suspect it has something to do with the persistent belief that people grow out of ADHD. I don’t know why that is still so prevalent, but SO MANY people still believe it. It’s ludicrous.
