Is when people think us sufferers are always hyperactive, and when they forget about the inattentive part. As a normally active person who, on the other hand, is inattentive, this gets on my nerves.
I can sit really really still, be quiet, and not bother anyone. But I have a really hard time paying attention. This means people think I am just lazy, and that I’m using ADHD as an excuse.
“But I don’t think you act like a person with ADD at all!” they say. “Maybe you just have some problems taking it all in!”
That’s a euphemism for stupid, by the way.
