Hi Macushla68,

Oh yes, yesterday it took me 6 hours to finally get out of the house to do the shopping.
When I was younger and not diagnosed I would spend hours on the sofa doing nothing, because I could not get myself to do what I was supposed to do (could not find a starting point and with what to start with, too many things on my to-do-list in my head) and therefore I denied myself doing the things I liked (crafting, hobbies etc.)

I know exactly what you are talking about!

I’ve just recently read about how menopause makes ADD symptoms worse…

Somehow I feel ADD/ADHD is underdiagnosed in Australia. Not a lot of people actually know about it.
