agentotter: Hey, thanks a ton for that post on ADHD, that was totally informational. Also I’m trying not to Internet diagnose myself but you also just described me like… to a frighteningly perfect degree. If you have the time, could you possibly talk a bit about how people are diagnosed, what the medications do, what kind of things you do to cope with or work with the symptoms of it? Does that question even make sense? :D
I feel a little awkward responding because I don’t know how much I can help here. I actually haven’t been officially diagnosed; I’m hoping to get that taken care of when I meet up with my therapist on Tuesday. But I guess I’ll share my experience and hope that helps? This might get long, is probably more than what you wanted, but, well…
First of all, when I say ADHD I’m also including ADD, because they’re actually just two forms of the same disorder. Technically ADD is known as ADHD-PI (predominantly inattentive). I actually had no idea about this side of ADHD until a few years ago. My youngest brother has ADHD, and he has the form most people think of, where he rarely sits still and never pays attention to what you tell him and will talk your ear off forever if you let him and has a million questions about everything. That’s what I always thought of when it came up. A couple years ago, though, I was talking to a couple friends of mine, both diagnosed, one with a masters in psychology. And the things they said sounded just like things that I dealt with, and as we continued talking there was more and more shared experiences and they both told me they thought I had it.
Sometimes, I really hate that they started classifying ADD and ADHD under ADHD only. I was diagnosed with ADD in the fourth grade. ADD. Not ADHD. Then the classification changed to be only ADHD. So, now, sometimes people don’t believe me when I say I have ADD because I’m not hyperactive. Everyone thinks you have to be hyperactive to have it. Not true.
Just talk to me for five minutes when I’m not on my meds and tell me I don’t have it. Seriously. I can’t focus on your face for ten seconds without being distracted by everything else going on around us.
