    Adhd not sure If I have.

    Hello. I was hoping if anyone could help. Or advise. I don't want to waste Drs time. But can't stop thinking about it. Do i or don't I? A big thing in my life since I was 13 was anixty. Now I'm 29 I also went into depression. But as I come across adhd sytoms online I realised that sounded like me! More add. I day dream a lot. I remeber a long time ago asking myself do people day dream as much as me! Then I think back at school. I was in learning support most my life. I never knew why. But looking at it. I think it was because I was in a trance or thinking what I was going to do when I get home. Or next time I was going to skate. Also when I was 13 I thought I had cancer. But I went into my own detail about it like. How was I gonna tell my mum! She would cry. I didn't want her to cry. So I kept it in. Thinking that was it for me. Then thinking of my mum and dad at my funarul. I was crying a lot and didn't want to go school. My mum spotted me one morning and asked me. I couldn't hold it in anymore. I told her. She got me into the Drs and turned out to be fine. But since them day my anxity and mind goes nuts thinking about it all. I find myself driving to work fast all the time and home. I loose my keys wallet and phone around the house all the time! What do people think I should do? I have a 9 week old daughter to. It would also be nice to know for her. But still don't like the idea of the Drs wasting time.

    RE: Adhd not sure If I have.

    Hello! It seems like you have been struggling with these symptoms for a long time. I am no doctor, so plz don’t treat this as a diagnosis. From what I see, it seems you may have ADHD. People who have ADHD are more likely to get depression/anxiety.
    To truly know though, I recommend getting diagnosed. I recommend taking the adhd assessment on adhddiganosis.com which upon completion is revised by a psychologist. I hope this helps!

    Hi. I have had the same behavior since I was 4 years old, and I visited a psychologist who did not help me. But my friends told to make an appointment with a psychiatrist, and I had some tests, so I was diagnosed with ADHD. I have been doing so well. Also, he will refer me to visit a therapist.
