Diagnosis of ADHD as an adult
Hi I am new to this site. I am 42 and did a study for a course I was doing at work on ADHD. It was to understand it better to support students. To be honest I didn’t know much about it. When I started to read up on it I thought “oh my goodness. I think I have this”
I have had a nightmare at work, feel overwhelmed, can’t focus, always busy but never seem to get the job done and feel in chaos.
I thought I was just forgetting stuff because I have such a busy job but it seems like the busy chaotic job has triggered it.
I would welcome your thoughts. A few people have looked awkward around me when I say funny things in serious intense settings. I just can’t help it, I hate intense pretentious atmospheres. It seems to have gotten worse since I gave up smoking too.
I would appreciate your thoughts as Dr isn’t so helpful.
