In brief: You are unique
I agree with dr. Villar. There is no reason to be ashamed of being yourself.
Each one of us is unique--we have our own strength profiles. Your value as a person is not dependent on you being like anyone else. What you want to achieve for yourself is what's important. Ask for help and be proud of yourself for getting involved and seeking to improve yourself. Your efforts will pay off.

In brief: Find the real cause
Adhd is a subjective psychiatric label.
It does not address the real underlying cause of the symptoms. Find a doctor who will work to find the real cause and treat it so you can have success in school without psychiatric drugs or psychiatric labels.
