Location: Carlisle, Cumbria
Campaign: To raise awareness about ADHD

I was diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) when I was just five.

 

It cast a shadow over my childhood.  I was badly bullied at primary school because people thought my behaviour was down to attention seeking.

 

So when I moved to a new city and started secondary school, I promised myself I wouldn’t tell anyone I had ADHD. It meant I didn’t get any support and I found myself zoning out in lessons all the time.

 

After finding out about Fixers, I knew I had to finally open up about my condition to encourage others to do the same and get the help they deserve.
