I was surprised by my ADHD Inattentive diagnosis at 52 last year. Just knowing that I AM oK but need help was amazing!!! If anyone feels they are broken, lazy, etc then I highly suggest going after a diagnosis. I am off meds for “depression and anxiety” and on ADHD meds, my brain sprarks! I am not getting things done but I am only 6mos on meds and know this is going to take time to find what’s right. I can look back over my life and say AHA instead of YIKES.
