Tongue my mom doesn't believe it

Over the past year and a half I have been diagnosed by 2 doctors and still my mother doesn't believe i have ADD. She believes she knows more than them and she says my bad attention is caused by my anxiety. Because of that belief i wasn't even able to discuss possible treatment for ADD with my doctor since anytime i mention it I'm shot down. it is a problem and i should at least be able to talk about it with a professional.

sorry this is just a rant but i thought someone out there may relate to this.

I'm so sorry, random1human It sounds like your mother is in denial, or perhaps just doesn't know a lot about MI. Why can't you discuss it with your doctor? Is your mother there with you when you discuss it? How old are you? I think you have every right to get the treatment you need and deserve. Your mother may not believe it, but you have a diagnosis, so you should have priority. I don't think it's far of your mother to dictate your life and your own mental health. Is it possible to see your doctor without your mother coming in? I believe you have every right to privacy when it comes to these things. I'm so sorry, I know how hard it is when the people who are closest to us aren't supportive. I hope you'll be able to get treatment. Feel free to PM me anytime. Let me know if I can do something to help you. Wish you good luck! Let us know how it goes. Sending many hugs to you

Sometimes parents take it personal as if they did something wrong which isnt the case. are you a minor?
