    Getting adhd diagnosed can be difficult. Symptoms could also be similar to OCD. There’s a lot of overlap

    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.
