So You Think You Know about ADHD?

This quiz is all about Attetion Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. I created it hoping that I could drop some cool knowledge on anyone brave enough to step up and take this bad boy. Plus I really want to see the results because I'd like to know how much the average Joe knows about this topic so I can compare them to myself before I spent hours and hours becoming an "expert" in the feild. Yes I know that's very self-centered of me but I just have to know!

So with that said If you or any of the people in your life think they have what it takes to make atlast a B on my quiz I double, no triple doggy dog dare you to try it out. If you don't succeed that's okay, you can "get yourself up and try again" right after I verbally pummel you to death with words that I didn't even know I knew that I'd know in time to use them to make fun of all who fall short of the glory of my ultimate ADHD QUIIIZZ!! Muhaha
