I would def say be careful of who you tell about it. When I first realized I had ADHD, I talked a little bit with one of my professors about it, because he was wondering what was going on. I am an art student and this happened to be one of my favorite art professors, who I looked up to alot. He had a very negative reaction to it, and it really upset, and for a little while changed what I thought about ADD. This can be discouraging, and I'm sure his views were from miseducation on the topic. It all ended up ok though becuase I started reading all the books i could, to get as many differnt perspectives as possible to create my own opinion ont he subject. So I'd also say to be careful about who you tell, for not only the reason I listed but also people are very quick to judge as we all know!

Oh yeah and now that I seem to be getting ADHD under control I am realizing more and more the wonderful things that come alot with ADD not just the bad ones! People with ADD are tipically (and I did read alot about this as well as notice many attributes in myself)sensitive, empathic, creative, have unique perspectives, spontaneous, playful, fun to be around, humorous, energetic, looks past surface appearences to the core of people and things, original.... the list goes on and on!!!!! Just thought this might help some people who have such negative thoughts on ADD.
