As a child I was very hyper — I wouldn't even sit at the dinner table. When I was in high school, I discussed my issues with my doctor, who asked for statements from every teacher I had from kindergarten through to the 10th grade, as well as my parents. We also had a hearing with my current teachers and then my doctor diagnosed from there. All of them said the same thing: she can't sit still, has outbursts, takes too long to do in-class assignments etc., etc. What brought me to seek help was when I was taking my ACT, I got up and left the test unfinished because another student was whistling.
