You sound a lot like me. I'm 22 and in Fall 98' I started going to raves as well. The first time I "rolled" I felt very little. During this time and for many previous years I was depressed, and a few months earlier i first sought treatment. Either way the 2nd or 3rd time i rolled it was the best drug id ever done. Lightyears better than weed or tranquilizers i had done. I loved it. I probably did it a total of 20 or so times, my last time being in november but many of them were either weak mdma or none at all. About this time I started to realize that it was possible I had possibly ruined my concentration. I read a more conclusive study than the early 90's ones, published in '99 i believe, that said that with increased x use concentration and memory are weakened. I had always had fairly poor concentration so i tried to get treated for ADD. It took a while but eventually a doc prescribed me adderall which helps me concentrate pretty well. Otherwise I haven't had any of the problems you had. I'd say that if you can't get a diagnosis now you might have to tell him your drug history and sooner better than later, cause when you tell him he might say "oh well that explains a lot" but maybe not. Good luck!
