I just Dontr know what to do, and any advice would help greatly.
This past past summer, I was diagnosed with ADD and a visual motor deficit. I'm a junior in high school, and my parents were less than willing to accept it, let alone consider medication. Before school started this year, I admitted that I really had thought about suicide, rather than deal with classes. They ended up relenting and taking me to my dr, who prescribed Adderall for the ADD part of it.
Still... it doesn't matter how attentive I am. I can't keep up with all the paperwork. When teachers had out assignments printed plain white paper, I have spend a good portion of my time using a highlter, ruler, and pen to underline and circle things and add lines to write on, just soo can READ it. Otherwise, it's just a sheet of unorganized words and symbols... Useless to me.
While it's better than jist not doing the work, it's still takes a lot of class time in order to do tis. Especially since writing is difficult and illiegible if I dont concentrate on it with a good amount of time.
Im falling behind in most of my classes now. Because of my school's writing initiative, we are required to write an essay in each class. I can almost never finish worksheets.
I'm overwhelmed, to say least aha, my dr was talking about sending me to get more processing deficit testing done, and maybe get accommodations for school, but idont want to fight my parents for it. In any case, it'll be too late for tests this year...
