When one has a psychiatric diagnosis, questions about revelation come up. A search for answers around revealing ADHD brings up one: It depends.
What’s the context (work, school, home)? What’s the situation? Who are the parties involved (believers, non-believers, agnostics)? What are the stakes? Ultimately, what are the real pros and cons, short- and long-term? For ADHD, the only time I’ve seen the answer clearly lean toward “yes, tell” is at school for the purpose of working out accommodations.
At work, the answer may largely depend on the work culture. How much and what kind of diversity surrounds you?
How I wish we had more research examining the reality of telling vs. staying quiet.
