ADHD Archives - Dangerously Good Stories

What would you do? Levi tends to strip down and drop his clothes wherever—inside out 90% of the time. The inside-out part drives me INSANE. Idk. I feel like I’m doing everyone a favor by keeping up with the laundry… the least they can do is drop off the clothes “inside right” (🤔😆) as I […]

He was diagnosed just after his 5th birthday. […]
