ADHD in Women
Misinterpreting Information/Spotty clear thinking
I was never diagnosed,but I think I may have ADD, I’ve been diagnosed with Generalized Anxiety Disorder and Depression already, a learning disability, and bad attention problems, but I think there’s something more to my difficulties…I can’t afford to go back to a psychiatrist….I lost my medical…
Anyway, I have been struggling with misinterpreting what people say and with what I read…..I also mistype words/sentences.
I will think someone said something when they didn’t say it or with my reading I will think I read something that I didn’t read….I think it’s because I have trouble fully focusing on what’s being said either due to the brain fog or being distracted….It’s so wonderful when I have phases of clear thought though! =-)
Most of the time I’m very distracted by my thoughts,moods,(I go back and forth between sluggish thinking and thinking quickly and clearly) and brain fog and also external influences. Clear thought and focus, to my frustration, comes and goes in spurts so people say that I’m super intelligent,but think, and accuse me of acting stupid on purpose.
Does anyone else go through this?
If so, what do you do to help yourself?
I’ve changed my diet to vegetables and protein/no sugar, I drink coffee, I take ginko biloba/multivitamins-minerals, I exercise for an hour or so 6 days a week, I try to manage my stress with music-my art(I’m a graphic design student),brain training games, breathing exercises, and binaurals-subliminals….
Thank You for reading this =-)
