Just Because.........

Just because I have ADHD
Doesn’t mean I can’t learn.
Doesn’t mean I can’t focus in school

Just because I have ADHD
Doesn’t mean I am different.
Doesn’t mean I am weird.
Doesn’t mean I am not normal.

Just because I have ADHD
Doesn’t mean I can’t control myself.
Doesn’t mean I should be treated unfairly.
Doesn’t mean I am stupid.
Doesn’t mean I can’t succeed at anything.
Just because I have ADHD – Doesn’t change who I am.

This poem speaks to the hundreds of thousands of kids who at times are treated differently for various reasons. Kudos to the author, Brittany Miller, for her courage and strength.

You are to be admired for reaching for your goals in life (as you should).  So nice that you express yourself to others who need this inspiration.
