Ok so I said I have ADHD but that is because I have the symptoms what if I am making it up and don’t have it? what should I do from now on to get diagnosed I have a therapist already for my OCD should I bring it up there?
Getting adhd diagnosed can be difficult. Symptoms could also be similar to OCD. There’s a lot of overlap
so what is the first step and will I embarrass myself if I am wrong
And what happens if they doesn’t take me seriously ugh I am overthinking it aren’t I
ugh i was told i didnt have ADHD when i first got tested when i was very young then got officially diagnosed in 8th grade its so annoying they said bc i had good grades i didnt have it
omg that is what people think but I want to get diagnosed because it is interfering with my life
i brought up me thinking i had adhd in therapy and she recommended to tell my psychiatrist so we could work on getting meds. i’m not on any yet but i would say your therapist/psychiatrist will believe you/hear you out and make suggestions of other things you could have if they don’t think it’s adhd
I used the DONE app and spoke about the manner in which I do things and shared the desired hope of focus on a video call. Was never diagnosed as a child but was evidently doing things backwards. My friends who were diagnosed also pointed out the markers.
