when I went to get checked out for this, I had myself checked for OCD as well. A lot of these terms get tossed around as buzzwords, and get thrown on kids who’s only actual problem is being pummeled by sugar in their diets. OCD people are much more serious. If you have to wash yourself like 40 times a day or you will DIE, you have OCD. OCD is hardcore serious, and you will definitely know you have it, or those around you will.
ADHD basically you have too much energy. You can’t pay attention to things, you interrupt during conversations (and if you have something to say but can’t, you can literally feel it), you get nervous tic’s, mood swing’s, trouble sleeping, and not being able to sit still (you’ve undoubtedly seen people sitting there just tapping their leg nonstop for no fucking reason at all). It’s a genetic disorder, with possible environmental causes, and has been known to have been caused by brain damage. You don’t fix it with diet and exercise, you pretty much HAVE to medicate it.
Imagine injecting yourself with pure adrenaline every morning…that’s ADHD.
