Don’t panic about the diagnosis too much, they Definitely will not tell you, you are just lazy…I am 42 and this was my fear too!They spend a lot of time talking to you and they know what to look out for and are also looking for signs of asd or other conditions so that they can signpost you appropriately if they can not help. If you instinctively know that adhd fits…and that it explains your life story so far…trust your judgment.
I received a diagnosis a couple of months ago…its quite mind blowing and at the same time an anti-climax! I have been up and down since…I know that I now have more information about myself to help me plot a more successful path through life…stay positive, and if you can’t stay positive then your life may not be supporting you well?? I am now looking at options to experiment with 🙂 flexible work with very short training and study episodes that I can manage, in an area that genuinely interests me…wish me luck and good luck in your own quest for answers.
