I'm not diagnosed, but my dad has ADD and I have pretty significant issues with focus and attention, especially since going to college. I'm not sure how to go about getting help for this. I have a therapist, should I bring this up with her?

      I would bring it up. I sought out getting the official diagnosis through an Autism and ADHD clinic. The testing was intense. Thankfully, they also have therapists that are specialized in Neurodiversity and it helped immensely.

      Hey! Had a similar experience too - absolutely bring this up. Finally getting a diagnosis was super helpful for me in general but helped with my focus problems in general too. Went from spacing out 10x per lecture on average to 2-0 times. I’m so grateful for it
