Thank you so much for your answers! Whatever the root of my difficulties is, you made me feel less alone.
I really needed some clarification about the high achieving thing. I will not try to force an undue diagnosis in myself, if that is the case; but I’ll make sure that, in case ADHD gets excluded, it is for a solid reason.
