I’m on the same boat. I’m 22 and my psychologist told me he can’t help me with my anxiety because he suspects I have ADHD and to go get diagnosed and tested first. This was over a year ago and I’m not doing anything about it to this day. I’m nervous and don’t want to truly look my issues head on because I don’t know what can be done about it and medications scare me.

But you know, slowly and surely every day I feel more and more determined to reach out and get help even if others don’t think ADHD is real or anything and even if it’s uncomfortable. I urge you to do the same. If anyone wants to doubt you well…it’s not like they can stand against science tbh.
