Finally got to see a psych today after years of putting it off. At the end of our session she concluded that I probably don't have ADHD because I had good grades growing up despite my struggles, and it's probably just been depression and anxiety. I've always been terrified of antidepressants but I've heard good things about Wellbutrin which is what she suggested for me. I'm glad there's a viable path to get help with ADHD-like symptoms when you don't qualify for a formal diagnosis!
…Grades have exactly ZERO to do with whether or not you have ADHD. I hope Wellbutrin helps you; it often helps ADHDers with their symptoms. I’m glad you’re getting help with your difficulties!
