One of my newer doctors has been the first doctor to ever mention the possibility of adhd. I’ve thought it was a possibility and I definitely can see how this could be an issue, but I’m having a hard time figuring out why this would only be brought up now as an adult 🤔

      It can definitely take a long time for anyone to notice. A lot of people tend to subconsciously hide their symptoms as well, especially as kids to try and 'fit in' better. Plus, parents/guardians are usually there to help us or push us to do what we need to. As adults though, we're more on our own and we have more responsibility which is when things can start to feel a lot more overwhelming and we may struggle more which can be why we start noticing symptoms later on. (Plus, I'd say all kids are pretty weird and hyperactive so a lot of times it can just be written off as being a kid instead of having adhd, but I don't know lol)

      It catches up. Diagnosed at 19, wasn't prescribed the right neds til 26. It's a ticking time bomb for some
