      Well, my family always knew. But the day I found out, I was shocked. I don’t know why, but I was upset, and crying, cause no one ever told me. That there’s a name for what I’ve gone through my whole life. That I’m not alone, and I’m not a freak. I found out through a series of YouTube spirals, and I’ve finally gotten a ‘proper’ diagnosis earlier this year.

      When it took 8 times for someone to spell their name to me....Working in a gym at the m front desk, I was so distracted by all the people, music, excitement around me, and I couldn't get anything done. Would take me 2 hours to send the easiest 2 min email sometimes because I was so easily distracted.

      I found out when there was a moment where I was listening to something I was looking at nothin I had nothing in my mind but I didn't comprehend any thing I was listening to. I had to listen to it 3 or for times to really listen and understand.

      When I was diagnosed, didn’t even know it existed before that

      An acquaintance of mine shared on Facebook her experience with being diagnosed as an adult and it was like reading my autobiography. I always thought I couldn't have ADHD bc I wasn't hyper and did well in school, I used to be very uneducated/unaware

      I tried to kill myself once because I was so stressed, for not paying attention and not learning and because that way I didn't pass my tests and I was failing, so my mom got scared and took me to see a psychiatrist, they told me all my symptoms and gave me my diagnosis 😥

      my family kinda suspected it for a while but it wasnt in my bloodline so we didnt take it to a doctor until a few years later when one of my parents got diagnosed and then it was just like an “ohhh” moment

      I've always considered my ADD like looking through a kaleidoscope have you ever looked through a kaleidoscope and seeing all the other changing designs and movements it's about the only way I can explain my attention deficit

        @gogogal yes to the kaleidoscope and I love the way you explain this cuz it definitely is how it feels sometimes
