I mean, I don't think they realized it while I was a child but for most of my life, I just thought I was lazy and undisciplined.
Even after I'd realized that there must be *something* different about my brain and found that treating it like a disability to be bypassed really helped, I still had days where I'd say, "Next week I'm going to get my ass in gear and not be like this."
The great thing about the diagnosis was that it made ADHD into a real thing I had to acknowledge.
Also, "I can't do $THING right now, I'm lazy." is still a running gag in my household.
