Iv been diagnosed with ADHD when I was 7 and met other guys who suffer from
ADHD Like me but never have I met a girl with ADHD. Am I just blind or have other noticed this too.

I know quite a few females with it, ranging from mild friend to highly medicated kids. It's not just one gender; there's plenty of females out there. You're absolutely not alone.

Trust me ADHD isn't a gender thing. That's just a stereotype like how girls say all boys have bad hygiene and all girls smell pretty. There's exceptions. It may be more common in guys, I dunno, but girls definitely get it as well

I'm a lady, and I was diagnosed with it when I was 14, so yeah, girls have it too.
