I havent been diagnosed but my husband is adhd and hes learning more about himself, while he was doing that i came across add/adhd symptoms that seems to be alot like how i am!
My husband always wants me to do the housework everyday... But it never gets done!! nothing does, I go to start something and end up getting distracted by anything in my way, Im always daydreaming (especially in the shower) I have been known my whole life to have been doing this so everyone will have to get in before me before i run all the hot water out haha.
My husband talks 10 to the dozen (adhd) and ill be sitting there daydreaming about other things and at the end he says "did u hear what i said?" or "are u even listening??"
Cant read or focus on anything if something or someone is in the room doing something because it distracts me
I forget everything! people say "what did you do yesterday?" I always say "I dont know??" so i have to think really hard what i did, dont remember where i put things? me and husband always have this problem
I go through phases of "I want to be a hairdresser" did first year and passed, now not keen to do it anymore... "I wana do this or that" and then a few days later im over it?
Not good with money, I will spend untill I have nothing in my bank, I have to get my husbands boss to save for me
I am very hypersensitive to criticism
I always get bored easily
My house is a mess mostve the time (And I do love a tidy house etc..) its just hard to keep up, But when i know someone is coming over i can do all my house work in under an hour its amazing!!
Not very organized im always late.. ive learnt to put my clocks 5-10mins fast
And much more it just all makes sense... the funny thing is that my husband knows im all of this but doesnt think i am
I'm not going to answer with what I think your problem is, because that may feed a possible self-diagnosis. See a doctor, psychologist, or other qualified health professional. Many mental health disorders mimic each other, so only a person learned in these areas should be diagnosing you. I hope everyone else on this forum chooses to not "diagnose" you as well.
This past week many ADD symptoms have been brought to my attention. I decided that I needed to make an appointment with a doctor who specializes in ADHD. For my own sanity I need a professional to evaluate the whole picture and make the final diagnosis. I will see her this Friday and if I am being honest about my feelings; I am scared. Frightened to even admit to another person all of the details of what I do and think. I am a very private person and many have a perception of me, because they don't know me very well, as "having it all together". But what they don't know is the exhausting struggle I have to "attempt to keep it all together". I am tired of wearing a mask and want to get to the real truth of what is going on with me so that I can start being honest with myself and others.
