I finally spoke about it.
As I mentioned in the men’s thread. I took the courage and opened up to the therapist I go to for other family issue. I told her I want to fess up, we have known each other for years (my wife has dificult mental illness) but from what I see now from my 9 year old daughter officaly getting dignosed. I’m almost sure I have add. We spoke about it for a while. The first thing I will do is ask my daughters doctor which is a neurologist that has the new computer test and ask him if he would test an adult.
The thing is, I’m living with it for almost 40 years so nothing is really changing over night and suddenly I’m so in to just wanting to know if I have it. And the more I read the more doudful I get. Is their anything worse I think? I know there is other mental illnesses but I’m not sue what it is.
Example: what make me the most worried, how in the world do people write they became doctors and who knows what? I can’t even finish a book with out lose attention after a short time I can’t remember what I bread. As I mentioned in the men’s thread. I hardly remember anything I learned from a book in school. I do remember how awful I felt by the way I was handled. Watched a few hundred kids go on to busses to go on a day trip and I wasn’t allowed because I got a 30 on muvtest.
Is this add or not?
I do understand I will need to go to a doctor for a dignoses and can meds help me?
