Hello everyone! Thank you for visiting our store! My name is Isaiah, I am 15 years old and I was diagnosed with ADHD when I was 7 years old. When my mom and dad told me I had ADHD, I didn’t really understand it, but I was concerned that it would make me different. It wasn’t until I was around 11 years old when I started to see a difference in myself compared to others.
I remember telling my mom I felt like I was stupid. It would take me hours to complete my homework that should have only taken 30 minutes. Reading was the worst. Not that I couldn’t read, but I wasn’t comprehending what I read. My dad had the nerve to ask me questions at the end of what I read and I had no clue. I would have to read it four or five times, no maybe eight or nine times before I could comprehend what I read. I felt so out of place at school because I didn’t see others like me. I played sports and would forget the plays and boy did my coaches let me have it! It has all been a learning experience for me that has made me stronger.
As time went by, I have gotten better with living with ADHD. I even made honor roll last year in the 9th grade which was a huge accomplishment! It was the first time in a long time! Reading comprehension has improved with simple tricks. I've also learned that I love Math and actually pretty good at it! In sports, my coach gives me very specific instructions and I do my best to carry them out. It hasn’t been easy; however I have great support from my family. They always encourage me not to give up on myself. My dad stays on me about being organized and my mom always comes up with ideas and tips to help remember key things that I would normally forget. I eventually learned how to live with ADHD and not allow it to take over my life. I now accept my differences living with ADHD and helping others helps me embrace it more.
One thing I want others to know is, it’s ok if you have ADHD because you can still do things others can do, and sometimes even better.
I told my mom that I wanted to spread more awareness about living with ADHD, so we decided a great way to raise awareness was create t-shirt designs and different apparel promoting ADHD awareness, acceptance, and early diagnosis. Our hope is that you will join us in our quest to reach the world and spread more awareness about ADHD. Welcome to S.A.S Tee’s & More! Let’s go ADHDers!”
