Reply To: 99% sure I have ADHD, but scared


Your post sounds as if I could have written it – and I ended up getting diagnosed at 48! Getting the diagnosis totally helped me to make sense of my life. I had a reason for all the crazy stuff that had happened – all the things I put my family through. It was as if a huge weight had been lifted off my shoulders. Interestingly one of my daughters had had issues throughout childhood but wasn’t diagnosed until she went to uni. Her psychiatrist felt I should be seen after she gave him the family history. Life is very much a struggle, particularly as I try to support my adult daughter as much as possible whilst dealing with my own stuff. xx
