Why would you have any negative social implications as an adult? You certainly have control over who finds out that someone has put a label on you. If you get on meds that are right for your condition, it will only help any social dilemmas. I was diagnosed and treated as a child and after neglecting it for 25 years, I was again diagnosed, Adult ADD. My social interaction with people and co-workers has been much, much better.
