Jules, it might be worth researching the regulation of emotions in ADHD. My experience is that although you can develop your own ways to manage the more logical deficits of undiagnosed ADHD PI, the ability to regulate emotions and the responses they give rise to, is not something that comes naturally. Do you respond well to criticism, do you have problems with bossy people, do you get angry with other drivers?
Another way to look at it is, can you trust yourself if you go through the day on auto-pilot? Does your conscious mind have to be in control to minimize errors?
Part of the problem with going so long undiagnosed, seems to be that we take it for granted that everyone else faces the same challenges that we do. To a some degree of course they do; the big difference is that we have top work much harder to overcome ours (if we can).REPORT ABUSE
