Do I have ADHD
I am wondering how to tell if I actually have adult ADHD. I am 22 yrs old and just started teaching at an elementary school. My friends have always joked in the past about me being adhd because i could never sit still long enough to watch a movie. I always brushed it off. But now I just dont know. At school i can get started on my lesson plans because i am overwhelmed. I am extremly disorganized and jump from one task to the next. I cant watch a movie or sit still. I always need to be moving.
Is this Adhd or is it simply that I am a more hyper person? I did well in school and college because learning is easy for me… but I still felt disorganized and one step behind everyone.
