I would love to hear from others who were diagnosed with having ADHD in their 40’s. I just wish I would have known much earlier. Playing Monday morning quarterback, when I look back , I think I could have avoided a lot of pitfalls had I known earlier. Some may disagree and or be prone to believe that each persons life was predestined to follow a certain path, and understanding each lesson learned while along the way, would prepare you for the next. I’m a christian and the bible lets us know that God has good thoughts of his children, not evil, for an expected end. So I get that and understand that my steps are ordered by God. But the bible also lets us know many people face unneeded stress and peril for not following a certain way, mainly for not having knowledge. The word says that God’s people perish from a lack of knowledge and understanding. What do you guys think? Would your life be much different if you could have addressed the ADHD at an earlier age in adulthood? And for those who were diagnosed in their twenties and now middle age, do you think getting the diagnosis early on helped your life? Did it hurt your life? Just curious the know.
