Hello, fellow brains.
Not sure if you remember me, I’ve been absent for quite a while.
About two years ago I learned about ADHD in a class of my masters in education. And we watched two of Jessica’s videos in that class. And I was like “oh my god, that’s like a checklist of being me”. Since then I knew I had ADHD, I was pretty certain, and I registered here in this forum, and several of you told me to get diagnosed.
Well, I took advantage of the whole home-office confinement situation and started a therapy and asked to get diagnosed. And this Saturday I finally received it. I was right all along. I have very strong signs of ADHD, and anxiety that goes along with it.
I am so glad that I did this, should have done this years earlier. And it explains so many things from my childhood. Now I am just excited to work on coping strategies and tools with my psychologist. Wondering if medication would be part of it.
I am taking this diagnose as something extremely positive. I finally know for sure where I stand. It’s never too late. I am 40 now and it’s still a good time to work on it. I am looking forward to the journey.
