Hello there Thomas!

As an older (okay, just ‘old’!) woman, it’s tempting for me to suggest that some of the feelings you’re experiencing are likely to do with being 16. Being young is wonderful, being young is also a very hard number at times! And that’s about as much as I remember.

There again, I do not have ADHD, I’m just a moderator support person. And I do realise that connecting with others who are experiencing similar challenges is the one main reason you’re here. So might I suggest that you go to the search function and see if there are any fairly recent posts that you particularly relate to? You could then reply to a few of those if you wish and perhaps that would help the process of getting known here and finding the people who will truly be able to advise and understand.

FWIW I am now going to investigate the author John Flanagan, sounds interesting!

Wishing you all the very best,

Christina from Moderator Support
