Hey, I’m a 50 year old European woman who got diagnosed at the beginning of this year (was 49 than). Suddenly my whole life makes sense. I had “self diagnosed” myself 4 years ago ( a steady follower of ‘how to adhd’ since than) but having an official medical report in my hand, actually brought me to tears. I am still trying to digest it. Trying to figure out strategies and tools. Hyperfocussing on adhd literature, studies and youtube videos. Learning a lot. Sometimes it helps, sometimes I am very frustrated. I am also frustrated about the 20 years of on and of psychotherapy, where I again and again suggested, I could have Adhd, but experts laughed at me, because I seemed to be getting my stuff together. Nobody saw at what cost. Getting older, I realise that I can’t keep up the energy level I need to pretend to be ‘neurotypical/normal’ - no energy left. So, that should be enough as an introduction :slight_smile: Annamaria
