Thank you so much for your input.

I like the idea of writing everything out and in detail before making the next move. I’m really so new to the idea that what I thought were anxiety struggles my whole life are potentially a result of having ADD. Many of the articles and forum posts resonate with me so so much and I just feel like I didn’t speak to that well in the evaluation at all. And my interview time with the Dr. was so short after such a lengthy battery of tests, he didn’t really go into depth in any line of questioning. It almost felt dismissively short.

It’s a big lesson learned on my end, but I failed to prepare for the interview portion to have my symptoms clearly outlined. Hopefully, someone reading this can learn from my mistake!
