ADHD symptoms can vary greatly & be mistaken for other issues, leading to a lack of diagnosis & treatment. It's a complex condition.

Much in the same way diabetes can. If the symptoms aren’t bad enough to lead you to seek medical help, people just think you’re a low energy person with a small bladder.

Are you saying women get misdiagnosed? Because they definitely do.

I’m saying they’re under diagnosed

That too. I work in medicine. Women are usually diagnosed with anxiety or depression before they even acknowledge they might be in pain.

If you also have bipolar II like I do apparently it causes symptoms similar to ADHD. I have both but was originally only diagnosed with Bipolar II, it was later that my doctor realized I had ADHD too. Since getting meds for that I've had much better mental health.
