So it turns out that even after getting a prescription from a GP actually finding ADHD meds is still a headache.
This one really works. I hate wearing shoes at home theaux.
Also, solidarity with my sistren in this thread. I hear you.
An update: I indeed have ADHD. I started out with medication but I will have to change it in a few days because it was too expensive for me to buy it monthly so fingers crossed that everything goes smoothly!I keep wondering whether I have ADHD or not, especially ever since I found out my biological mom, half-sister, and nephew all have it. My psychiatrist says I don't and it's my GAD instead, but I keep what iffing.
Also, there is something that's been happening more frequently since the pandemic started - not necessarily related to the pandemic itself, I just noticed it around that time. I'm taking a lot of time to respond to people in simple things like saying yes/no/thank you/good night, etc. For example, my mom says "thank you" to me, I "get" that sentence immediately, but it's like there is a "barrier" that doesn't let me instantly reply, so my response gets "delayed" and I say "you're welcome" like 5 seconds later. Did any of you have to deal with that?
This is very interesting, have you got the link to the original article?View attachment 39252
Just came across this and.. yup that's me. Makes a whole lot of sense but also: hate it.
Especially cause 'wanting to impress others/live up to expectations' was one of the things that actually used to motivate me and now I'm more focussed on 'okay, but what is it I WANT?' I realize how bad I am at making myself do things 'just because'.
