Hi, I’m new, and I’ve only just recently got a therapist after years and years of trying ( because of family and the actual process). Recently been diagnosed with depression and anxiety. I’ve tried to mention how I think I’ve had ADHD, but she really didn’t get into it. She promised a test but now i’ve haven’t seen her for two months :/ I do the following: • Repeat stories over and over again to the same person, not knowing that I’ve told them the same story multiple times prior (not too long ago) until they remind me • Stimming. Constant leg bouncing all the time. Hand flaps. Doing accents and animal noises. • Picking up an interest for a few days and immediately losing interest in it afterwards. I probably pick it back up in a spans of 4 months to a year. •Hyperfixing on sonic and my little pony mostly •I can’t remember a lot things • Not wanting to do something because it seems very boring •Waiting til the last minute to do something • Trying to remind myself to do something but still not doing it. (Currently have been trying to turn in 3 books I forgot to turn in to the library for over 6 months) • Sometimes I tic • I have to drink coffee to actually complete my work and focus and like a lot more but i’m tired of typing. any help?

      i’ve had very similar experiences, something that definitely helps when have the “i think i have adhd” talk with your therapist is to go through the dsm5 diagnostic criteria and write/type out all the symptoms and then note on eat symptom whether you experience it or not, and if you do come up with some examples of how you experience said symptom. a good rule of thumb for what examples to give is childhood and current experiences in 2 or more environments (school, work, home, extracurricular activities, etc.) hope this helps! feel free to message me if you need anything or have any questions !

      The coffee one, omg, if I drink coffee with my medication and nibble it, sometimes it'll actually help, so in my nonprofessional opinion, you most likely have ADHD or the coffee wouldn't help that much.

      it is major signs of adhd, as a person with adhd i struggle a lot. but i recommend finding a new therapist and try to get tested quickly.
