She knows why I have to stay on the meds. She's not embarrassed I'm on meds. She just doesn't want me to have to take them forever.
I didn't mean to sound critical at all, and that's great she was supportive of you getting help.
I'm sure if I had been going through depression my mom would have had me get help as well. I think part of why she reacted the way she did about me thinking I had ADD was because she's always had huge plans for me. From a pretty young age I can remember her telling me "You're going to go to a four-year university!". I don't know why having ADD would prevent that, but I think that her fearing it may have been part of her reacting the way she did.
