Help ! I don't know what to expect ?!
I’m a 47 year old high school teacher, who is having a hard time functioning with yet to be diagnosed ADD (It could be ADHD - but trust me it’s one or the other. I’ve just been able to mask it or, rather deny that it exists for such a long period of time.). I’m in the process of getting an appointment for testing/diagnosis. I teach children who have been diagnosed and medicated, not really seeing the impact that meds have on their performance. I’m just a little wary of what may happen if I need meds….. Will I still be me ? I just can’t quiet the noise that exists inside my head. I’m getting too old to run through the 3 & 4 different conversations/lines of thought/ musical diversions/ whimsical ideas, etc. that I always seem to have in my head simultaneously throughout the day. I do not have an OFF switch. There is no such thing as “relax and think about nothing”. I need Help!!!
What should I expect during testing ? ... a barage of questions and surveys ? .....electrodes ? what ?????
