Anyone else diagnosed with ADHD as an adult? I’m so upset this wasn’t caught early in life— I think I’d be in a totally different place.

      You won't be. I have been with it my entire life and everyone has a different take on it

      I am 29 years old and was just diagnosed earlier this year. I think my thought patterns and self talk could have been a lot more positive my whole life.

      Diagnosed at 39 and I work in mental health and my diagnosis almost killed me… It’s hard to not be angry about the missed diagnosis

      i have never been officially diagnosed, but i was put on Adderall this January, and im almost 19. i very much get your feelings of mourning a life that could have been, and we are all here for you

      Yes- I was diagnosed at age 22, but suspected since like 4th grade

      I chalk it up to things just happening when they need to happen. I’m probably someone with their head in the clouds but when I think too much about the latter I spiral.

      Idk if this is considered what you’re asking but I was diagnosed at 18 while in college

      While my diagnosis came at age 45, I knew I was different my whole life. It's hard not to think about the "what ifs". I'm in my 40s just now finishing up an associates degree
