I have been diagnosed with Crohns Disease nearly 2 years ago. I have felt very tired and unable to focus all the time. As a early teenager I read frequently and now trying to read more than a paragraph is too much work, as I find myself repeating a sentence in my head and head over and over again not trying to comprehend, but not on purpose, and not even processing what it says. I believe I have ADHD, some say I have senioritis. No matter how much sleep I get, I am still tired, I sleep Atleast 4 out of my 8 classes a day. My mother blamed it on my work and does not believe I have ADHD as she has it as well. And just that I am lazy. I am struggling in school when I am usually a 4.0 student. I don't want this to ruin my life. It became so bad that one day I had taken a single Adderall provided by my friend. I NEVER DO DRUGS WHEN THEY ARE NOT PRESCRIBED. THIS WAS A CRY FOR HELP. I felt so absolutely normal. It was the best day of my life. I was not running everywhere, talking a lot, or feeling discomfort or jitty. I was not absolutely quiet either. I was fully active in class discussions and did not feel my eyelids falling every 5 seconds. Before I take assumptions and make an appointment which I may soon, do I have ADHD? And if not then what is it? (As a child I was quite the hyper child until I was diagnosed with Crohns)
