Hello about three years ago I was examined to see

Patient

Q: Hello about three years ago I was examined to see if I had add and they said I did so I've been taking medication and I mean I'm pretty smart its just all these get in in the way and it has extremely helped. But I was doing my research and I discovered that when I was little about 4 or 5 I fell of a pretty high set of stairs and hit my head causing a bald spot and I began to think is it possible that the symptoms that are similar to adhere may have been caused by something else? I also began to stutter at a certain age an. Other things happened to my mom while I was in her stomach as well. I'm 16 and a male and I would like to know if this is a possibility because I believe I have so much potential but my own self holds me back. Also after I injured my knee my body began to just give up on me. I gained weight I had no energy and I still don't and I haven't really gotten tested in anything I was also thinking it could be my thyroid because I have many if the symptoms of a thyroid problem. And my father had a history of mental problems and abuse he died in 2012 he did not live with me for my entire childhood. Before it was fine I had problems but not as severe as they are now. The medication is what I barely get by on. I don't even have the energy or will to achieve a small simple goal. It feels like at 16 everything just went down the drain along with my body and grades and even social life.
