Thanks Katie, I did do the test as well as couple of other I found online and I tend to fall just below the range of scores that they say might indicate having ADHD when I answer optimistically, and just above when I’m thinking worst case scenario! I think talking to a professional is the best course of action. Thanks for the idea of writing a list – I will do that. I also had a family crisis a few years ago (a death) and in the wake of that my patience for listening to people diminished greatly – at the time I thought it was a symptom of grief but it’s stayed with me and I now wonder if it was there to an extent all along.
Anyway, thank you and I hope you find your Dr’s appointment helpful.
