I know you are scared, but you are in the right place. I stumbled across an article on ADHD and took 2 quizzes to see if I qualified. I did. I took those to my PCP and he agreed with my diagnosis. I was 49 at the time.I was always scared, confused, racing, angry, overwhelmed 24/7.

My PCP gave me meds. On the first dose, I felt some relief and knew I was on the right track.

ADHD is nothing to feel ashamed about or something to be dismissed as all in our heads. We all have a right to feel good in our bodies.

Good luck to you! This is a great place for support.
