Hi outoftune

just read your post and thought I would help by adding to it!!

I have just been diagnosed with ADD and I’m 40 years old! Somehow I went through life with all the signs of inatentative ADD. Life got too much too handle after having a family. Too much to remember and be responsible for and it just pushed me over the edge and 3 years after being told I was depressed and that all they could do for me was give me anti depressants, I’ve got a diagnosis but still finding it hard to get any medication.

When I was young like you I had ticks that involved eye blinking shaking my head and coughs! These disappeared by the time I was 13 but most of my typical ADD traits have remained and still make life hard to this day!  I have a lot of anxiety and social problemsthat come form living my life this way for so long! ( when you live your whole life like this you don’t know any different).

I just know now from my own research that quite a few people with ADD suffer from tiks .

Hope you managed to get a 100% diagnosis as this all helps with any treatment. I found a really good book by Daniel Amen called healing ADD that has been a big help to me
