21 Of People’s Biggest Regrets In Life's Profile


6.

“Not fighting and advocating more for myself growing up. I struggled with classes, jobs, projects, and hobbies. I had a really hard time focusing on anything. I was called stupid, lazy, and all sorts of other things by my teachers, friends, and co-workers. I knew I wasn’t any of those things but just couldn’t seem to get things right. … Now, a father in my 40s, I started seeing similar issues with my daughter. When we went to speak to some specialists, it turns out she has ADHD and a generalized anxiety disorder.”

“We got her treatment and a prescription for some medications, and she’s doing so much better at everything. The similarities in her struggles and mine motivated me to get tested, and sure enough, I got diagnosed with ADHD (inattentive type). I started counseling and medication, and it’s like a switch was thrown. I’m a functional human finally. 

Now, I’m just dealing with the emotional trauma of growing up like that and all the pent-up frustration and anger over a life that ‘might have been’ had my parents, or anyone for that matter, made an effort to really find out why I was the way I was. … Better late than never I guess.”
