I never pay much attention although I am supposedly bright. I can never sit still and I hate silence. I hardly think before I act and I can be very hyper. But does that necessarily mean I have ADHD?

None of us can tell you whether you have it or not. We can guess all we want, but you need a professional to diagnose you.

You need to talk to your General Practitioner and the Refereed Pediatric Psychiatrist or Psychologist....either way, none of us here can help you....

I live in the UK, do you know if I can go to a professional without my parents finding out?

Honey, listen, if you go without your parents how are you going to get the medications necessary to treat this, you need to tell your parents.

I know I will sound mean but SUCKC IT UP and TELLL THEM....

I know but I just don't want to disappoint them. I guess I'm a little scared that if I do have it that they'll be disappointed with me or not even try to see if I do have it.

No, your parents care for you and this shows them that you can be mature and responsible....
