A story from a friend
Many of you might have saw this in the comments but one of my friends wrote this. I have copied this word by word not correcting any thing and this is all true!
im going to write this as anonymous cuz im not allowed to say who it is. my cousin has ADHD and it effects the whole family. everytime he (10) his younger brother (8) and his youngest sister (3) come over for a family dinner he never plays games with us and if he does he is always arguing therefore its really hard for us to get along and play normally which means fights. i feel that the one that is effected the most is his younger brother. the reason i say this is because everyone one loves an adorable 3 year old, so she gets attention. since my cousin with ADHD has ADHD and is hard to control (in the nicest way possible) he gets attention. the only one that doesnt get attention is my young cousin. this means he does everything he can to get noticed my his parents even if it means crying over things which is not worth crying about or using violence on my cousin with ADHD. that means my cousin with ADHD gets really angery and hits him back, there is no way to controll his emotions. this usually leads to most of the FAMILY fighting. my cousin goes to a special school because HIS school couldn't handle him. its a very rough and challenging time for all of us but one day we will get over it.
