Welcome to r/science! This is a heavily moderated subreddit in order to keep the discussion on science. However, we recognize that many people want to discuss how they feel the research relates to their own personal lives, so to give people a space to do that, personal anecdotes are now allowed as responses to this comment. Any anecdotal comments elsewhere in the discussion will continue to be removed and our normal comment rules still apply to other comments.

I and almost every ADHD kid that I know (with few exceptions) were bullied for this and more. The disorder attracts very poor treatment from others.

I have adhd related adult clumsiness but managed to avoid bullying, thank goodness. I'm grateful that the only bullying I've ever had to deal with is the many times I've rolled my eyes, and sighed in exasperation, in response to my own clumsiness.
