  • How to get tested/dx for ADD

    I'm a 41yo woman. In the past 6 years I have been to 3 different (GP) doctors and asked each to schedule testing for ADD for me. The 1st told me I was just too busy in life. The 2nd (about 2 years later) told me he didn't believe in that dx. The 3rd (approximately 1&1/2 years ago) told me we would address it later. The 3rd Dr was part of the same network of Drs the 1st is part of. When I went in for a second visit with Dr3 I spoke with them about getting testing done. There were 0 notes....

    Please help.

    Hello! I am a junior in high school right now. I've always had trouble focusing on whatever anyone would say and can't understand direction until reading it slowly over and over again. I also daydream uncontrollably- sometimes to the extent of wasting 2-3 hours in one time doing so. In around 5thgrade, I would regularly sleep at around 12 am doing homework because I just could not focus. I would also keep bugging my friends to teach me what the teacher just taught because I could not focus....

    Anxiety

    Last week, for the first time ever, I went to speak with a councilor at my college. I am 30, a FT (returning) student and FT manager and am feeling overwhelmed in my last semester before graduation. I have been throwing up when I wake up on busy days for nearly a year. I have panic attacks about twice a month which numb my face and blur my hearing. I believe that most of my anxiety is related to untreated ADD. My parents did not believe in it and ignored and were insulted by teacher conferences where....

    SEVERE ADHD

    I need some suggestions beyond patience, etc. I work with a woman who moves constantly at lightening speed (not exaggerating), speaks at lightening speed, and the mere mention that something may need to be done evokes immediate action to head up the project....consistently. It is becoming a problem of great proportions as others in the office need to be able to shine and bring their expertise into certain situations. Our ADHD gal takes others ideas and promotes them immediately. She moves from project....
