It's Hard

By: Kristin, Age 14, Tucson, Arizona

I have ADHD.
Sometimes I say things impulsively
and kids think I'm weird
and then I get embarrassed.
I get tired of my teachers telling me to slow down and think.
I try, I really do,
but sometimes I don't think it's possible to control myself.
When I'm hyper I feel this strange pulse going through my body and I feel like I need to move badly.
I'm not on medicine any more because they never seemed to work.
It's really annoying,
but I live with it because I don't really have a choice.
