I am Maria and I am a 27 years old Master student, and yesterday I was officially diagnosed with ADHD.
It all started when the TED talk of Jessica McCabe appeared for me. It all started to pop in my head. So, of course, I got really curious and I started to document myself.
At that moment I was having some cognitive therapy since I couldn’t manage my anxiety, so I decided to talk about it with my psychologist.
The good thing about that is that she was actually a specialist on ADHD therapy (and I didn’t even know it, it felt like it was meant to be). After a couple of days of the test, yesterday I got the results.
It is amazing how after your tests results you can even get to know about your strong and weak points and how you can work on them. And it also everything makes way much more sense (like failing a whole subject because you forgot a bracket or a number inside your python script).
At the moment I don’t know anything about accommodations at my university, and since my master doesn’t have a lot of students, I don’t know if they are prepared for that kind of things. Also, the fact that I study in a German university and I am not German, it makes me wonder if they would also offer it for foreigners
So far, I think I still need to learn about this community. So happy I could find How to ADHD, and they have a forum to communicate with all of you!!
Cheers, Maria =)
