I don't have much advice, but I do know quite a few people with AD(H)D and I know that both people with disabilities and without can have a hard time making friends, so you're definitely not alone. I find that taking care of a pet can really help because they don't judge and are really sweet.

Another thing you can try is a support group. You may or may not be seeing a professional but as much as professionals know the official information, the ones who experience it and their family are the ones who got the practical advice, you know? Maybe there's a parent of a child with ADHD who can tell you some techniques that they've tried that works for their child or a peer who did something to help them out. It can even be online if you're not keen on going out too much.
It is probably harder to make friends but it is possible and doable.
Best of luck!

I have ADHD so I can relate to you in a way. I, too, have a hard time making friends. Are you taking any medications for your ADHD? If not, you should talk to your doctor about being put on medications for your ADHD.

Maybe you could try looking into support groups for people who have ADHD, if there are any.

Maybe you could try talking to your guidance counselor, if your school has one. They maybe able to help you out and help you figure out what to do next.

Hey, you're not alone, I have adhd and sometimes I feel like it ruins my life. Just try being yourself, people should like you for who are. Sometimes talking with a counselor can help, so if your school has one you could talk to them about how you are feeling

So not alone!

I've had ADHD all my life. One of the things that helps alot is simply medication. It helps put a curve on the impulsivity and allows you to control yourself better. However, Meds are not right for everyone, so talk to your doctor about it. The side effects are pretty sever and I had moments where I felt like Doctor Jekyll/Mr. Hyde.

Another thing that you should consider is just gathering friends who accept you as you are. A true friend would embrace you and your squirrel moments But will also reign you in when you need it. Pretty much, be yourself and people who love you would come to you.
