A child’s view of ADHD from the inside looking out I hate to sit still I have to do boring things all day I can’t learn all those math facts It’s hard to listen for so long I try to do what my parents ask me to do, but I forget
A thousand negative messages I’m always in trouble for something

The “I can’t” Kid I can’t get started I can’t remember I can’t get things done Feels like I can’t get anything right!
