Awhile back, me and my friend, Eric Willhelm, were talking about our busy lives and he mused, “Doesn’t everyone have ADHD?” That started me thinking about how probably lots of people wonder and are questioning ADHD as the issue. So, I asked him to come on the show with me and talk about it.
In this episode, we explore this question and talk out loud the process of answering the questions found on the Adult ADHD Self-Report Scale (ASRS-v1.1) Symptom Checklist.
Eric’s Awesome Quote:
How do you feel when you hear, “Doesn’t everybody have ADHD?” It’s a question often considered insulting by people with ADHD; after all, the answer is obviously no and it belittles the diagnosis, insinuating that ADHD isn’t real.
But is it always intended to deny ADHD’s legitimacy? What if the person asking the question believes it’s real because even his own son has it?
What does it mean if you don’t fit neatly into the box of ADHD or non-ADHD? Listen and find out.
