I am now 68 and only realised I have ADHD 3 years ago! I always knew I was not stupid, but struggled in school. Stuff I found interesting was never a problem, but long boring projects I just could not do, especially during holiday time. Knowing that I was going to get in to serious trouble for not doing the holiday homework still could not motivate me. I believed I was just very lazy! Had a very successful career and never realised I had a problem until I started to find it difficult to remember important things and started to write down everything. Also started to develop anxiety which got worse and worse as time went bye. From age 50 I realised something was just not right in my mind and started to search for answers with periodic counselling, Psychiatrists, Physiologists and all sorts of professionals providing pills and advice. Was also driving my wife mad with my absentmindedness! Then a few years ago a Physiologist asked me if I had ever looked at Adult ADHD, said no, laughed at her but did read up on it. The Penny dropped, at first very slowly. I did one of the questionnaire tests, then asked my wife of 45 years to complete the same test as if she was me, my results showed I had ADHD with 90% certainty. My wife’s results showed a much higher positive score!!
