I can’t tell you how much I appreciate all of your posts. I’m relieved to know I’m not alone.

I did take a standard AD/HD quiz/test through my PCP about two years ago. He commented that I had problems with distraction and depression and that is why he prescribed Wellbutrin.

I’m going to find out if the test I took is an official diagnosis. If it isn’t, I will pursue getting one.

Has anyone taken the interactive test on this site? I scored 8/9 on the Distraction traits and 4/9 on the Hyper traits. I saved the test results to my profile, and the website said that I’m probably NOT AD/HD. It’s weird, because I thought if you score more than 6 on any of the traits, it’s an indicator.

In addition to all of the reasons people listed for getting a diagnosis, I have found that knowing (if) I have AD/HD I’m better able to empathize with my daughter. I have been operating on the assumption that I do have it. I look at her and I see myself. I have been sharing with her things I’ve done over the years to focus and listen in school. I feel that I understand her so well, and I know there is value in that.
