Hi @zambatriste 🙂
I know what you mean. I have also just made an appointment for an “official” diagnosis. Even though my ADD doesn’t seem to be that severe, the ever growing pile of clutter in my living room says otherwise. Though I am able to function the way that I am I feel I need to be medicated more in order to really get it together and, more important, keep it together. But my doctor is insisting on sticking with my current treatment.
I need the diagnosis for my own satisfaction and to be able to try different medications to find something that really works. And also for my own protection when I return to work, so that I can request accommodations if necessary.REPORT ABUSE
