No. The lack of a diagnosis for the previous 44 years is what held me back from my goals. Not knowing why I was constantly failing at friendships, work relationships and every one of my paid and unpaid jobs….a diagnosis has been a tool for working with more information about myself and getting where I want to go. I can finally sleep well, organize myself and earn an income where I am not bored to tears each day.
Thanks for asking.
