      Hi, I am looking at researching the experiences of women who have been diagnosed with ADD as adults (35+) for my doctoral thesis and wondered if anyone would be interested in sharing their story with me in an semi-structured interview? I have to get the ethics for my project approved first, however, just wanted to gauge if there is any interest?
      Thanks

      Good morning. I have contributed to a doctoral study on nutrition for those with ADHD. I would be happy to contribute in any way I can to your study. Being diagnosed at 65 hit me hard; dealing with it hit me even harder. Please count me in.

        Kerry, I’d love to share our joint experiences. I was diagnosed at about age 54 and am 68 now. Really just getting help for it the last 3 years or so. How do we connect, if you are interested?

      I was diagnosed at age 43… 5 years ago. I’d be be happy to participate. Adult ADHD is still poorly understood. I recently disclosed to a supervisor that I have ADHD and she replied that she did too. “You do?!” I asked, feeling hopeful that she might understand it. “Oh, I mean I’m not diagnosed,” she said, “but you know I’m always on the go…” Sigh. Then there was my son’s guidance counselor(!) who said, “Well, as my son says, everyone who grew up in the 80’s is a little bit ADD. Hahaha.” Haha-sighhhhhh 😔
      Sorry to ramble. It’s an ongoing journey!

      I wasn’t diagnosed until about age 54, abt 14 yrs ago. Didn’t get much help in the beginning, but love this Additude site. I’d be happy to participate, too.

      I’ve suspected since I was in college, but finally got diagnosed at age 60. (I’m now 65)
      My psychologist said he couldn’t believe I functioned all my life without medication. I’d be happy to help with your research.
