It sounds like you have symptoms so why not just go get checked out? I was diagnosed long after my adolescent years and chose to get checked out because I remembered my struggle as a teenager but was seeing it all over again with my daughter. Everything I was seeing in her and reading about was all too familiar. It just made sense to get checked. I always knew something wasn’t right or different but I didn’t know what. I wasso relieved to know that I wasn’t wrong and that it is treatable. Being diagnosed really helped me understand the struggles I remembered having when I was younger. Even though I have challenges, I feel so much better because I know whatI’m dealing with.
