I think I might have ADD. How can I tell my parents I want to see a doctor to know for sure?

My parents, especially my mother, are very indenial about this kind of stuff. Even though I'm home schooled, I spent most of the time in my room and we only see each other a few times a day, and we barely speek. When we go out, I usually listen to my music or my mind is off else where, yet they think they know everything about me. They think I'm perfect, but I'm not, and I really want to know if I have ADD. I have almost all the symptoms. How can I tell them?

    Chances are you won't read this or take it seriously, but y'know, yolo or whatever.

    About a year ago I was at where you are now. And I can confirm, it's hell. But you don't have ADD. In fact, I'm convinced no one does. Everyone has a cross to bear, a unique combination of nature and nurture that will shape who you are, no matter how firm a grasp you have on it. Shape, not define. Chances are you find sone comfort in labels. It is only once you give up on defining yourself that you can begin to know who you really are. And I know I sound like some existentialist holier-than-thou, but you and I, we're one in the same. I could tell just by your word choices, seriously.

    Also, just to let you know, the supposrd symptoms of ADD are also scientifically proven traits of geniuses.
