Over the past few months I've been slowly piecing together my mental history and the fact that I (very likely) have ADHD. It's been a long, strange, and very emotional journey and the fact that I may finally have my answer is both extremely relieving and incredibly frustrating. Learning just the past few weeks that my brother was diagnosed with ADHD, and the fact that the men in my family have a large history of it finally puts so much of my own struggles into perspective ever since I was a kid. I literally burst into tears watching research presentations by Dr. Barkley about his in depth explanations about ADHD and his findings and it was like he was describing my entire life and all the struggles I've been through. I feel like for the first time I finally know what the hell I'm dealing with, and am able to actual move forward with my life.
So glad to know that you're closer to finding the right diagnosis and treatment for you... best of luck, my friend !
