I'm afraid to know...

I'm a 20 year old university student. Female, average hight, slightly over weight. My whole life I have had trouble sitting still and focusing on any type of work unless it was something I loved like medical stuff.
I get yelled at for being random, not remembering detail, not paying attention to anything, and getting bored easily. I hate the amout of extra energy I have even while working out, going to school full time and working full time. My parents constantly scream at me for acting immature with so much energy.
A few months ago a doctor told me I may have ADHD. My family does not believe in disorders like this so I'm too embarrassed to be evaluated. I'm also very afraid to know the truth because......well who really wants a doctor who had ADHD? (I'm trying for medical school)
I don't know what to do.
