I was diagnosed with severe ADHD when I was about 13. I was and still am on 54mg of Ritalin a day every morning and I know ADHD stands for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder but I feel like I crave way too much attention like I feel like if one person isn't paying attention to me I feel like no one is and I broke up with my boyfriend of 3 months a few weeks ago and he was sending pics of him with his tie round his neck and with a knife to his wrist. My best friend had a crush on him ages ago but then said she was over him. When he was sending them pics her and our other friends were so obsessed with him and worrying about him and ignoring me (my boyfriend has ADHD aswell but only mildly) so to get the attention back on me I did the same... I came to school with plasters on my wrists and telling my friends I had cut myself although I didnt. I refused to show them when they asked because there was nothing really there i only said I'd cut for attention. My mum found out as she asked for my phone and saw the messages. She has taken my phone and says she can no longer trust me. I am on my blackberry playbook which I am allowed. I guess my question is what do I do about my obsession for attention and how do I make it go away?? :(
