T. Lavon Lawrence, I too am dealing with how things might have been different had I been diagnosed earlier. What might I have become, but ultimately I have decided that there is nothing I can do about the past and just move forward. Not easy to do, but a necessary step.

scarfox, I too am now looking at everything from an “ADD perspective” and am constantly amazed at all the things that can be attributed to the diagnosis. I have also been talking to a couple of acquaintances that are also diagnosed and that’s really helping me. For so long I knew that my brain worked differently, that I worried or analyzed more than the average person but I never realized that something was causing that, that there was a reason. I always just assumed that it was just who I was, but ultimately it was affecting my relationships and myself. I can analyze anything to the point of confusion, uncertainty and even paranoia and I could not turn off my thoughts. It was awful. Things have gotten a bit better with the medication but I have a long way to go yet.

Does anyone else find that they are moody? I know that I am and I can’t seem to control it. One of the things I hate the most. I know i’m overreacting, or making things worse but I just can’t stop. Ugh.
