I was just diagnosed 2 days ago at 49 years of age. I have been researching the possibility of having ADHD for less than a year, my family doctor said anxiety, so I absorbed all things “anxiety” but my mind is still like a tennis ball in a dryer sometimes. I recently learned about the tremendous impact proper medication can have on ADDers….so I’m just beginning that journey but as usual, I’m impatient already.
This story, and the subsequent posts show me that I’m not nuts…..but that I just have similar traits as many of you, and Overachiever’s story is a very familiar story. A diagnosis is a relief…now some work to do.
I just hope that I can find the time to observe from a corner or jump in once in awhile.
