I'm 25 years old and just hit that 'wall' so to speak. I kept asking myself what the heck is wrong with me?
Somehow ADD came up as a possibility. I knew that my 2 sisters had been diagnosed but I didn't know
what it was. Then, I cracked a book on ADD and BAM! Out of the list of 20 traits found in adults with
ADD I perfectly matched with 18. Since then a few weeks have passed and I've gone from denial to relief
to being petrafied, sometimes all at the same time - it's like everything I've failed at all my life suddenly
has a reason.
Anyway, I'm off to a psychiatrist in a week for my evaluation, the same one my sister uses actually. Does
anyone have any words of wisdom or comforting stories they can relate to ease my mind? This is truely
one of the scariest, yet enlighting, moments of my life.
