Oh my lord! That’s so frustrating I just gone done talking with a new psychiatrist today hoping to go the route of addressing ADHD as the potential MAIN issue in my life versus depression/anxiety with some concentration and motivation issues on the side. He straight up told me that if I had “true ADHD” I would not be able to focus on anything at all. This was in response to me saying that if it’s super specific, I can engage quite obsessively in a topic I like. I mentioned hyperfocus and he said it’s not a thing… What?

I don’t understand how these people are paid so much to dismiss others after such a cursory intake.
