so I don't have a diagnosis for ADD but it runs in the family.. and I'm just tired of not knowing which symptoms are coming from which problem. Couldn't I just group them all into one diagnosis? PTSD maybe? I can't focus, I just kind of feel a little detached but not in a bad way i guess? I can barely read a paragraph and it's no longer just because I'm depressed (i dont think i am so much anymore), I just can't seem to follow through on anything even if I'm excited about it. And then I get sad that there's so much I wanna do and I know I have the energy for it but there's some kind of mental block. Not to mention my horrible memory. it's like Swiss cheese lol. I don't have any patience for learning new things or reading or any other projects.

      Iโ€™d look into doing more research and hearing from more people when you can (Look for ADHD btw since ADD is now an outdated term). A lot of these problems can stem from both and honestly sometimes you just have to tackle a problem from 2 different angles but talking to people will probably be your best way to figure out where to start.
